UA Student's Death Saddens Many Who Thought Her Special

On Sunday, October 26, 2003, Amy Petersen (pictured above on an October 2003 trip to New York City), a minor in the Department of Religious Studies, died unexpectedly at her apartment in Tuscaloosa.

The faculty, staff, and students in the Department were shocked and greatly saddened by this news. Amy had already taken several classes in the Department and was currently enrolled in two classes.

In the midst of their shocking and extremely sad news, members of Amy's family--who came to Tuscaloosa from their home in Huntsville, AL--visited Manly Hall, to let us know how much Amy appreciated our work and how stimulated she was by all of her classes. We are both flattered and greatly humbled that Amy's mother, Jo, took the time to speak with us at what can only be described as an extremely difficult time. Amy Petersen Chose Religious Studies; It was a Perfect Fit

Amy's family hopes that the fund will continue to grow and, perhaps someday, endow a student scholarship in Amy's memory.
