The Drake community mourned the loss of one of its own recently.

First-year Robert Anthony Zevenbergen died in a head-on collision on March 20 in his home state of Kansas.

President Maxwell issued a statement about the tragedy: “Robert will be greatly missed—and I hope that the vacuum created by his loss will soon be filled by wonderful, warm memories of the impact that he had on all who had the privilege to know him.

“As a Drake family, I’d ask that we all keep Robert’s family and friends in our thoughts.”

Students took to Facebook to share photos and memories of Zevenbergen and send their condolences to his family.

Zevenbergen will be missed by many.
