Dear UM Students,
It is with deepest sadness and regret that I inform you of the loss of one of our students. Adam C. Levine, a senior majoring in Political Science in the College of Arts & Sciences, passed away last night at Jackson Memorial Hospital. The University has been in contact with Adam’s family, and we wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to them and to his many friends. Please keep them in your thoughts in the following days.
Truly beloved by all, Adam’s outgoing, caring personality and sense of humor was known to always make his friends smile. Adam was a member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity where he served as a beloved brother and respected officer and leader in the Greek community. With a remarkably joyful disposition, he enjoyed helping his fellow students. He was an active leader in Student Government, where he had served as a two-time Senator and Public Relations Vice Chair. Adam also served as the Program Coordinator for the Freshman Leadership Council.
He studied abroad in Australia last year, and recently, he had decided to apply to dental school.
I know the UM community will join me in supporting Adam’s family and his many friends and honoring Adam’s memory during this difficult time. Information regarding a memorial service will be shared through social media when details are confirmed.
