Share this post

Purdue students traveled to West Bend, Wisconsin, to attend funeral services for 21-year-old Andrew Boldt, who was fatally shot inside the electrical engineering building on the West Lafayette campus of Purdue University last week. A fellow engineering student and teaching assistant, 23-year-old Cody Cousins of Warsaw, Indiana, has been charged. Authorities have not yet commented on a possible motive. Purdue provided charter buses for students, faculty and staff who wanted to attend Tuesday's services. Purdue is planning what the university is calling a “day of healing” this Friday to help the campus community cope,and counselors and therapy dogs will be available.  The dogs will come from the state's K-9 Assisted Crisis Response Team, part of the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction's emergency preparedness and response program.  The K-9 team specializes in working with college students after tragedies. The use of dogs to comfort students was documented after tragedies at Virginia Tech University, Northern Illinois University and the University of Alabama.  Counselors from several university departments also will be available to students who need someone to talk with. No appointments are necessary.
