Funeral for Brandon Landau
March 9, 2012
The funeral service for Brandon Landau, first-year student at Illinois Wesleyan who
died last Sunday following a fraternity social event at White Pines State Park in
northern Illinois, will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 10, at Riverdale
Presbyterian Church in Bronx, New York. President Richard F. Wilson, Dean of Students
Karla Carney-Hall, and several of Brandon’s classmates will attend the service.
The campus community turned out in large numbers this week to attend a remembrance
service at Evelyn Chapel on Monday and a candlelight vigil Wednesday evening. “The
students, faculty, and staff at Illinois Wesleyan have used these events to express
their deepest sympathies to Brandon’s family and friends and to come to terms with
the personal grief being felt by everyone,” said President Wilson.
Brandon was a political science major who lived in Gulick Hall, a member of the Sigma
Pi Fraternity and worked at Tommy’s grill in the Hansen Student Center.
A campus memorial service is being planned and will be announced in the coming weeks.
