On Thursday, September 18th at 8pm in Stetson Chapel, Kalamazoo College held a campus gathering to remember Elizabeth “Liz” Robison ‘14, who died on the morning of September 16th.
Some of the phrases and words her friends used to describe her are: a student, a worker in Media Services, a math and business major, a die hard Doctor Who fan and an all around nerd.
Her academic advisor Dr. Barth, Professor of Mathematics, spoke about her love of accounting and his shock when she was on his list of advisees during her sophomore year.
Liz Candido, College Chaplain and Director of Religious described Liz as, “quirky, complex and smart…[she] was a typical K student.”
Alex Teal, Media Support Specialist and Liz’s supervisor spoke about her helpful manner and her willingness to take any job, even the hard ones.
“Even though she described herself as hermit…she was loud and explosive…she was expressive whether it be the through the color of her hair or wearing some crazy hat,” said Teal.
Sam Rood ‘15, one of Liz’s friends, ended the ceremony with the Doctor Who quote, “Some people live more in twenty years than others do in eighty. It’s not the time that matters, it’s the person.”
