Remembering Cassidy Fritsch

Cassidy Fritsch came to UW-Madison with a track record of academic success and a readiness to get involved. In just over six weeks on campus, she had already joined several organizations that spoke to her concern about the natural world: the Veterinary Science Club and the GreenHouse Residential Learning Community.

Fritsch, 17, passed away unexpectedly on the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 9. A first-year student from Brookfield, Ill., she was a resident of the new Aldo Leopold residence hall, named for the pioneer of wildlife ecology.
