Statement from NYU Stern School of Business Regarding Michelle Go

Statement from NYU Stern School of Business
The NYU Stern community was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the death of Michelle Go (MBA ’10) who was killed in a senseless act of violence in Times Square on Saturday, January 15.

Michelle was a vibrant, beloved and committed classmate, student ambassador, and alumna. There has been a tremendous outpouring of sympathy and support from her classmates around the world, sentiments that we extend throughout our entire community.  She is remembered as a stellar student, natural leader and loyal friend. She will be greatly missed.

Our hearts go out to Michelle’s family and her many friends. While there may be no indication that this was a bias crime, we especially feel for the Asian American community at this time in light of the recent condemnable surge in anti-Asian violence.

The family has asked for privacy so this will be the only statement Stern will issue, and we ask others to join us in respecting their wishes.
