A Brown University graduate student is dead after an apparent suicide.

South Korean Hyoun Ju Sohn was a first year doctoral student in the Brown Physics Program.  Sohn fell or leapt from the university’s science library Tuesday.  The multi-story building sits in the heart of the school’s Providence campus. Police responded to the scene a little after noon. 

Brown held a vigil for the campus community Tuesday night.  In a statement, University President, Christina Paxson wrote that Sohn was beloved by his undergraduate students as a teaching assistant.  She urged students to seek support or counseling should they need it, and to take care of one another.
