Andrew Sun, a sophomore at Harvard University, died on Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital from injuries sustained after falling from a building near the New England Aquarium on Sunday. “Very sadly, from all we understand at this point, this was not an accident,” Anne Harrington, co-housemaster of Sun’s dormitory, told the Harvard Crimson on Monday. Sun, who was 20, was pursuing a degree in economics, and was known on campus for his love of basketball and involvement in a non-denominational Christian group, Harvard College Faith in Action, according to the Crimson. “I love everything I remember about Andy Sun,” Harvard sophomore John Hoffer wrote to the Crimson. “His personality is genuine, and that’s what made his long laugh so breathtaking.” Harvard will hold a community gathering for students to remember Sun on Thursday.
