In Memoriam: Student Merideth Joy Baum


To the Miami University Community,

On behalf of the Miami administration, it is with deep sadness that I share with you the news of the death of student Merideth Joy Baum, age 23, of West Chester. Merideth passed away unexpectedly April 15. She was enrolled in two classes on the Hamilton campus and at the Voice of America Learning Center. She was studying to be a nurse.

The university extends sympathy to Merideth's family and friends. Anyone at Miami who feels a need for support should call the Hamilton student counseling service at 785-3211.

Services were held. Memorials may be made to Children's Hospital Nephrology (Attention: Alisa Madden). Condolences can be posted at

Bob Rusbosin
Regional Dean of Students
