Passing of a Student Veteran

Dear Manhattan College community, 

It is with much sadness to inform you that student Edward DeGuisto, class of 2018, tragically passed away over the holiday weekend due to a traffic accident. 

DeGuisto enrolled here at Manhattan College in 2015, after serving in the United States Marine Corps. DeGuisto was very involved on our campus, serving as the Student Government representative for the Student Veterans Organization (SVO), formerly known as the VALOR Club.
