This Spring 2022, a shining light lost her flame - a bright, passionate & loving 21 year old student named Georgia Dray. Georgia’s parents & family,friends and the BU community of fellow students, parents, alumni, professors asked Boston University Board of Trustees, President Brown and the Dean of College of Arts and Sciences to award Georgia Dray an honorary Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Boston University.

The university has refused. They have remained silent adding to the stigma of mental health struggles worldwide.

Although Georgia lost her battle with her mental health challenges, Georgia was never prouder to attend Boston University and call herself a terrier. She had attended for most of the pandemic and was a rising senior in excellent standing.

Just before her tragic suicide, Georgia was accepted into the Psy Chi International Honor Society. We recognize the mental health crisis in our country and on Boston University campus. Honoring Georgia in this manner will remind all she mattered and that we need to do more to reach out to anyone hurting especially our students of all ages.

Please do not allow Georgia to just become another sad statistic. Her life mattered. Her dreams mattered. Georgia mattered. 
Please sign this petition today and share this with others. But when asked to donate please do NOT donate as this will not help efforts and does not help her family in any way.

Your signature is what counts now in the hope that Boston University will reevaluate its decision. 

If you know anyone hurting or you yourself are, please call 1-800-273-8255. You are not alone. You matter.
