In an email sent out by CC’s communications office this afternoon, the tragic loss of junior Emily Spiegel was shared with students and faculty.

Spiegel’s body, according to a prior all-campus email, was reportedly found in a car parked outside of Bemis Hall early this morning. The college has ruled the death as an apparent suicide.

Spiegel served as Vice President of the CCSGA, was a proponent of mental health programs on campus, and participated in a variety of other campus organizations.

A gathering is scheduled for 4:oo p.m. today in the Shove Chapel for anyone who would like additional support or to remember the life that touched our campus.

The next paper copy of the Catalyst will feature a memorial for Spiegel. Anyone who wishes to share a memory is encouraged to contact catalyst@coloradocollege.edu.
