In Remembrance of Maura Binkley.
It is with deep regret and profound sadness that the entire Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics joins together in mourning the loss of Maura Binkley, one of our cherished students. Maura was a German major in our department, who also pursued a second major in English. Her academic performance was consistently excellent, and she also excelled in her extra-curricular and study-abroad initiatives. Complete text here.
