    :| glad i didnt apply
    i'm not being funny, but glad u didnt apply??

    there are thousands of students at the university and this sorta thing happens once in a blue moon! like said before, if it was murder or anything like that, they would have to tell the students about it! the most likely story is he was wasted cause he finished his exams, walked home on his own (on his own accord) collapsed and froze! its been sooo cold here the last couple of weeks! and totally agreeing with the fog! i live directly opposite a car park and for the last couple of days ive not been able to see to the end of that due to the weather conditions!

    so the 'glad u didnt apply comment' - if your not in the state of mind that your going to commit suicide then u wont. its always up to the individual!
    and my friends have gone to loads of uni's all over the cuontry, and every week they tell me about knife crime, rape, bad assalts, and serious robbery!
    it happens all over the country at whatever uni you go to!
    Keele is safe....but if you choose to walk home alone at night thats your decision, the safety bus is there, so up to u whether u use it or not!

    chill out you massive rectum, i wasnt talking about malcious crime. keele sounds like a pretty quiet uni so it's not completely unlikely for them to have higher rates of depression amongst students.

    So, let me get this straight... ONE person dies and now Keele is apparently unsafe?

    Will your mom escort you off the Earth too? Millions of people die on it everyday... BOOOHOOO

    If you're that small-minded and sheltered, you stay at home!
    I meant if it was murder. Plus I think if it ws murder most mothers would be a bit worried. My mum is worried about me leaving anyway because yes and i'm not going to deny I have led a sheltered life but I posted very early and people dont get murdered everyday.

    The suicide rate is another of those student rumours. It's not as depressing as it seems. It's such a small close knit community feel that people tend to watch out for each other.

    I doubt it's suicide - not many people would kill themselves in the middle of a field. From the sound of it, I'd say it was either a drunken stagger home that went wrong or a heart attack on a morning jog or something.

    Since when did one person committing suicide = high rate of depression? (ignoring the fact that this isn't definitively a suicide).

    The guy has now been named. Maybe everyone should just lay off until the circumstances become more apparent. I know at least one of his friends posts on here so it'd probably be a little more respectful.

    If you would care to read the rest of the thread, a graduate said there were a number of student suicides during her time at keele.

    I am glad you didn't apply
    Anyone who thinks there's a link between small unis and depression probably wouldn't get the grades anyway

    And if you'd done similarly, then you'd have seen that somebody else said that there were a number of suicides at Birmingham. So if there's lots in one place, and lots in another, then I can't see why you can claim the rate of depression at Keele is any higher than at other Universities.

    I wasn't making any claims or making any links. All I was saying was saying was that IF there were higher than average rates of suicide at Keele it would be understandable because the campus is in the middle of nowhere (from what I know of) and I can imagine it's relatively easy to just sit in your room and mope all day because you have to get taxis or buses if you want to go anywhere.

    That's pretty ****** up. If it's like what my Mum was saying (my sister attends Keele...) then why didn't a guard or porter find him?

    Campus universities tend to advertise themselves as being extra-safe and student friendly.

    :/ I hope anyone who has been affected by this news is okay.
    If its anything like my uni, the C.S.O's who are gurads/porters just sit in their office playing xbl...

    So yeah.

    Apart from a heart attack or something like that
    How else do you think he has died? idiot

    btw by suicide i mean dying on his own accord
    and by murder i would mean dying as the result of someone else

    i know they're not strictly speaking correct terms but it doesn't matter
    You do realise a lot of people have medical conditions?

    What's with all these new TSR users at Keele popping out from all over the place? LOL. You don't see that in other threads, apart from the odd troll, but then these aren't. Just find it a bit funny, but then I'm strange like that.

    I guess everyone's been searching online and is interested to know more. It's a sad situation... I've heard some more information has been disclosed, but I expect there will be more.

    For all we know, he had a heart-attack..
    Dude. I was always led to believe by my Mum that he died of too much drinking and hypothermia, and that's what a lot of the students thought. Everyone else has jumped the gun and assumed I thought someone had been assaulted/killed :/

    Hi Guys,

    I graduated Keele in 2002 after four of the best years of my life. I am female, and as a result of my employment in the union, I used to be scurring around Campus at all hours of the morning and not once did i see anything untoward or did anything bad happen to me or my friends.

    Keele is a safe place. I think it is telling that the police are saying that the death is unexplained rather than suspicious and therefore everyone should try and keep thier heads. A death of a young person doesn't automatically mean murder or suicide. There can be other things that kill people with little or no warning, brain haemorrohage, heart failure from a genetic condition or as a result of substance over-indulgence.

    I urge all parents of young adults who are due to start Keele in September not to panic until the details emerge. To deny someone the chance of going to Keele is to deny them a chance to spend their university years in a place which can only be called unique.

    To all the current students of Keele that might read this, I hope that you all look out for each other and band together as the community I know you to be at this time. Whether you knew this poor soul or not, you have lost one of your own and it will be a difficult time. As students we sometimes think we're untouchable and death like this is shocking for anyone to deal with. I am sure myself and the other Keele alumni are sending our warmest wishes to you all, as well as the friends and family of the deceased.
