The University of Connecticut community is grieving the passing of undergraduate student Mia Kirlan-Stout, who passed away unexpectedly in July. She was from Boulder, Colorado.
The University expressed its condolences in a statement Tuesday.
Kirlan-Stout was a senior studying animal science, as well as a member of the Poultry Science Club, the Block and Bridle Club and the American Dairy Science Association at UConn.
“The loss of a classmate is never easy and we acknowledge that people experience many emotions as we navigate the passing of a valued member of the UConn community,” the University said in its statement. “This is a difficult time for the University and we write today to remind you of the resources available to you and encourage you to reach out if needed.”
Condolences to the Kirlan-Stout family can be sent to the Dean of Students Office, according to the statement.
“This is a difficult time for UConn and for the Kirlan-Stout family,” the end of the statement read. “Our deepest sympathy goes out to Mia’s family and friends during this time of loss.”
