Campus mourns the passing of student Sara Overstreet

This afternoon, President Paxson notified the Brown community of the untimely passing of student Sara Overstreet ’16. Overstreet, a junior from San Jose, California, was concentrating in English and International Relations at Brown. According to Paxson’s email, she planned on continuing her cross-disciplinary studies in graduate school and eventually working for a think tank or non-governmental organization.

We at BlogDailyHerald would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Overstreet’s friends and family. Any remembrances and photos of Overstreet are encouraged to be sent to so that we may publish a memorial in her honor on our site.

In her email, President Paxson reminded the student body that the offices of Counseling and Psychological Services (401-863-3476) and Chaplains and Religious Life (401-863-2344) are always available to provide support to the Brown community.
