The head of the ISU Counseling services says her staff spent most of the night in the residence halls in which two University students were found dead in their rooms. Sandy Colbs says most morning phone calls came from concerned parents. And counselors are now seeing the first walk-ins from students needing to talk about the incident and get help with their grief.

   

Colbs says they do several things incluidng checking in with people on their existing case loads.

   

Colbs says the issue is one of caring.

   

Authorities are still investigating the deaths of a 19-year old sophomore girl from Schaumburg and a 19-year old freshman boy from Wilmette. Police believe there were no crimes or connection between the two deaths.
