MORGANTOWN W.Va - West Virginia Vniversity held a bell ringing ceremony this afternoon in remembrance of student, Anthony Cistaro.
He was a 19 year old accounting major from Clarksburg.
He died on September 27th.
The event was coordinated by the Office of Campus and Community Life, and Alpha Phi Omega , a national service fraternity.
Cistaro's family and a large crowd of students gathered for the ceremony.
"We may not know each student personally, but it really is a hit to the university when we lose a student, so we take this time to honor their presence on this campus, to allow people to come and speak about them if they want to share experiences and it's just a time for us to let the families come, be a part of the campus, as we remember their sons and daughters," said Kim Mosby, senior associate dean of students.
A special plaque from President Gee was presented to Cistaro's family, representing the contributions Anthony has made to the university.
