Candlelight vigil scheduled, counseling available

AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State University's Government of the Student Body and Dean of Students Office will hold a candlelight vigil in memory of Abel Bolanos at 8 Wednesday night on the south campanile lawn. All are welcome.

Counselors from Iowa State's Student Counseling Service will be available at tonight's vigil.

Health care professionals at the counseling service are aware that the past few days have been difficult for the ISU community, and they extend sincere condolences to the family and friends of Bolanos, associate director Joyce Davidson said.

"If students are struggling with feelings they need to process, the Counseling Center offers services to students on the third floor of the Student Services Building from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday," Davidson said. "Counselors also are very willing to meet with student groups during the day or in the evening to give students an opportunity to discuss their feelings and to discuss the process of self-care and stress management during times of grieving and stress."

The number to reach Iowa State's Student Counseling Service is (515) 294-5056.
