Howard University Community:


The University community mourns the loss of music major Alonzo Guyton.  We deeply regret the untimely death of this promising young man who was very active at Howard and well loved by his peers, faculty and the staff who worked closely with him.  We extend our condolences and prayers to his family, friends and those who knew him. Last night, the campus community held an impromptu vigil supported by Dr. Barbara Griffin, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dr. Bernard L. Richardson, dean of the Chapel.  We will keep the community informed of memorial service details. Students who are in need of counseling should call University Counseling Center at 202-806-6870 or after hours should use Crisis Line at 202-345-6709.This incident took place off campus and there is an ongoing investigation by Maryland Police. As a result, the University cannot share further details.
