Sarah Dugas, a freshman at Virginia Tech, died on Saturday, March 16, at her home in Virginia Beach.
During her first year at Virginia Tech, Dugas became a political science major and rushed the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. She received a bid and pledged ZTA in spring of 2013.
Kelsey Edelmann, an English major and close friend, described Dugas as outgoing and energetic, with an infectious good mood. In high school, Dugas participated in Student Council, leadership workshop and the soccer team, and she was also the manager of the school's swim team.
