Hundreds of students gathered around The Rock late Thursday night after hearing the news of Harsha Maddula’s death.

The gathering was originally planned by residents of the Public Affairs Residential College as a vigil for the then-missing McCormick sophomore before NU spokesman Al Cubbage announced Maddula’s body had been recovered from Wilmette Harbor.

During the vigil, students spoke about knowing Maddula as a classmate and as a friend. Some told stories of sharing meals after classes, while others recounted what they would no longer be able to share with one of the members of the NU community.
