Candlelight vigil to be held for student who died at Lake Shasta

A Candlelight vigil to remember University of Oregon student Dylan Pietrs will be held on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. in the EMU amphitheater.

Pietrs, a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on campus, was found dead last Saturday morning at the annual “Shasta Weekend” trip.

Fraternity and Sorority Life director Caitlin Roberts said all members of the UO community are welcome to attend the vigil and remember Pietrs.

“We will give Dylan’s friends the opportunity to say a few words, or share memories,” Roberts said.

Students are also invited to sign a banner hanging outside Columbia Hall for Pietrs family as well. The banner will be up for students to sign for the next two days.

The vigil is being put on by FSL and the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on campus.

If any students need emotional assistance or counseling they are encouraged to contact the counseling center at 541-346-3227
