The entrance way of Andrew Hall leading to Fidel Reyes St. has been closed. Students are advised to take the Taft entrance instead. pic.twitter.com/WfP9wG9K9A

Apparently, a Lasallian committed suicide today. Mental health is real and not a joke, this should be a wake-up call for everyone. RIP.

It's awfully painful to hear about such incident and realize that, at a certain point, some of us were at the brink of doing the same.

RIP to the Lasallian who committed suicide. This is why we need to take mental health issues seriously, depression is not "pag iinarte".
