TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Murray Gibson, the Dean of FSU's College of Engineering, says the loss of civil engineering student Andrew Coffey is tough to handle.
"To hear about somebody, even though we don't know him well, who never got that opportunity and all that lost potential is very sad," Gibson told WCTV Tuesday.
According to Gibson, Coffey was a junior who had just transferred to Florida State this year. He was set to begin taking civil engineering courses in the spring semester.
"Our students spend their junior and senior years usually full time here taking engineering courses and he was just about to begin that," Gibson said, "But sadly that won't happen."
Coffey was found dead Friday morning after attending a party Thursday night. He was a pledge of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity.
