Roosevelt University student Dylan Slager passed away on April 24. Slager was a 21-year-old Hospitality and Tourism Management major at RU who worked as the senior student manager for the Lakers men’s basketball team. The university provided transportation to memorial and funeral services last week and a candlelight vigil was held in Grant Park in Slager’s honor. Roosevelt mourns the loss of Slager, who was a dedicated and active member of the community.
