Kristina Belyakova ’19 has died unexpectedly while in Costa Brava, Spain wrote Dean of the College Maud Mandel and Vice President for Campus Life and Student Services Eric Estes in a community-wide email Tuesday.

Belyakova was a dedicated student who pursued a concentration in theater arts and performance studies while hoping to become a leader in ethnic, culture and gender studies.  She was described by people close to her as “exceptionally bright” and a “devoted friend,” wrote Mandel and Estes.

Resources at Counseling and Psychological Services and Student Support Services, in addition to University Chaplains, are available to members of the Brown community.

    On the newspaper’s home page, there are two stories about two different college students who died “unexpectedly.” Neither story mentions a cause of death. Has anyone at the paper made any inquiries?
