**Student** at Bucknell University Dies on Campus: Tragic Loss of Christian Samay from Mountain Lakes in New Jersey

Lewisburg, Pennsylvania – A tragic incident unfolded at Bucknell University over the weekend as school officials announced the passing of a student. University President John Bravman shared the heartbreaking news, identifying the student as 24-year-old Christian Samay from Mountain Lakes, New Jersey.

The private liberal arts school in Lewisburg, located about 60 miles north of Harrisburg, was deeply saddened by the loss of Samay, a senior student. Bucknell Director of Media Relations, Mike Ferlazzo, confirmed the student’s passing on Monday, revealing that Samay was found deceased at the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on Saturday afternoon.

While details surrounding the circumstances of Samay’s death remain undisclosed, Bravman clarified that the incident is not related to the active shooter scare the university faced less than 24 hours prior. The campus had been put on lockdown following reports of a potential threat, but law enforcement determined it to be a hoax originating from Virginia.

Authorities are awaiting the results of an autopsy by the Union County Coroner’s Office to determine the cause of Samay’s death. Meanwhile, the university has extended counseling services to students affected by the tragedy and urged the community to keep Samay’s family in their thoughts and prayers.

As Bucknell University grapples with this immense loss, the campus mourns the untimely passing of Christian Samay. The investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death continues, with the college community coming together to support one another during this difficult time.
