In memoriam

UD professors and students remember Alexis DeFrancesco as a diligent student who liked to sit in the front row and as an outgoing and caring friend.

If possible, officials encourage occupants to avoid entering the building until Tuesday, Sept. 2 – following the Labor Day holiday weekend – to allow the building time to air out.

UD officials said the fire started in and was confined to a piece of laboratory equipment on the first floor of the building on Academy Street, with smoke spreading throughout the structure.
