Community mourns passing of Rutgers student


A Rutgers student majoring in mechanical engineering, Phillip King, died on Sept. 4 — two days before the start of the fall semester.

Rutgers—New Brunswick Chancellor Richard L. Edwards said he was "sad to inform" the community of King's death in an email sent out to students. King was a School of Engineering junior and a resident of Bordentown, New Jersey.

"Please join me in keeping Phillip’s family and friends in your thoughts during this difficult time," Edwards said.

Visiting hours for Phillip were held Sept. 10 at Saul Funeral Home at 3795 Nottingham Way in Hamilton. A funeral service began at 7 p.m. at the same location.

Counseling, ADAP and Psychiatric Services are available for students affected by King's passing. CAPS is located at 17 Senior St., and appointments can be made by calling (848) 932-7884.
