A Message from President Feridun Hamdullahpur on the death of German exchange student Amelie Limberger
On the afternoon of October 25, following an accident in uptown Waterloo, German exchange student Amelie Limberger passed away.
On behalf of the University of Waterloo, I extend our deepest condolences to Amelie’s family, friends and colleagues. Our entire university community is shocked and profoundly saddened by this loss.
Amelie was with the University of Waterloo for a one-term exchange from Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences in Germany, studying in our faculties of environment and engineering. She made friends instantly and contributed to exciting research in the fields of transportation and urban planning.
As we experience the deep sadness of losing our friend and colleague, I encourage any University of Waterloo community members who may need support to reach out to our Counselling Services team at 519-888-4567 ext. 32655.
We hold Amelie's loved ones in our hearts and minds at this difficult time.
