Adrian Dik Che Law ’05, an architecture student and resident of Risley Hall, ended his own life last weekend in his home city of Hong Kong.

“One death is always too many,” said Kent Hubbell ’69, dean of students. He said that Law’s death has come as a shock to the architecture faculty, with whom the student had a close relationship.

Law’s family has set up a memorial service in Hong Kong. The College of Art, Architecture, and Planning is also making arrangements for a service on campus to take place later this week or early next week.

The University’s first priority is to support Law’s parents, according to Hubbell. “They are shattered,” he said.

Students seeking support are urged to contact University programs such as the Empathy, Assistance, and Referral Service, Counseling and Psychological Services, and chaplains through Cornell United Religious Work.
