It is our deep regret to inform you that on Thursday, February 11 a student death was reported in Johnson Hall. There is no known threat to the campus community. We ask that non-residents of Johnson stay clear of the area while the Whittier Police Department conducts its investigation.  

Counseling services are available for students, faculty, and staff 24/7 by calling the Department of Campus Safety at 562.907.4211 and asking for the on-call therapist.  

The student's parent has already been notified. Our thoughts and prayers are with the student's loved ones.
