Miami University sophomore Andrew Dalton Salsman died unexpectedly Dec. 16, according to a statement released by Interim Dean of Students Mike Curme. His passing marks the sixth student death since January 2013.

Curme said Salsman’s mother informed Miami of her son’s death, which occurred
off campus. 

A physics and mathematics
major, Salsman worked as a research assistant at Miami after receiving a physics
department scholarship.

His memorial was held on Dec. 28 at Life Church Cincy, 270 Northland Blvd.,
Springdale, Ohio.

Donations can be made to the Andrew Dalton Salsman Memorial Fund through any PNC bank branch. The money raised will be used to provide scholarships for high school students
pursuing the sciences.
