Less than the week since the Drexel community lost freshman computing and informatics major Taline King, LeBow College of Business students were informed that freshman general business major Rocco Perate III died March 5 as a result of a car accident that occurred three days earlier.
“University officials have contacted the Perate family and have expressed the sincere condolences of the Drexel community. We will provide whatever comfort and service we can to them during this time,” Frank Linnehan, dean of the college of business, wrote in an e-mail to the student body March 6.
For students looking for support, Drexel’s Counseling center is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It can be reached at 215-895-1415 during those times and at 215-416-3337 all other times.
