Candlelight vigil for students killed in crash

U-M undergraduate engineering students Yuan Xiang (left) and Siyu Liu join the candlelight memorial for two Chinese students who were killed in a car accident Oct. 16 while on a tour of northern Michigan.

Above, the Friday night vigil on the Central Campus Diag was sponsored by the U-M Chinese Students and Scholars Association in conjunction with the Dean of Students' Office to honor Zhangqin Xie, a master's student in electrical engineering, and Ran Xu, a master's student in educational studies. Below, participants were able to offer messages of support for the families of the dead students by signing books — one for each student — at the vigil.
