TWO American students were found dead in gorges at Cornell University and a third jumped to his death last Friday.
The string of deaths within a month shocked Singaporean students, prompting Cornell's Singapore Students' Association to reach out to fellow Singaporeans there.
There are about 150 Singaporean students in Cornell, an Ivy League in Ithaca, Upstate New York. About 40 Singaporean students stay in Cornell's North campus, close to where two of the bodies were recovered. A search is still on for the third body.
