Tyler Clementi, the 18-year-old gay Rutgers University student who was bullied to death, was remembered at several university events over the weekend, the Star-Ledger reported.

Clementi's body was fished out of the Hudson River on Thursday. The freshman jumped off the George Washington Bridge and to his death nearly two weeks ago after learning that his roommate had secretly streamed live video of him having sex with another man onto the Internet. Dharun Ravi and another freshman, Molly Wei, have been charged with invading Clementi's privacy.

Nearly 1,000 mourners attended a silent vigil in memory of Clementi at the university's main campus on Sunday. “Tonight begins the process of healing,” Jenny Kurtz, acting director of the university's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups, told the crowd at the start of the vigil.

“Everyone needs a safe environment in which to live together,” Barry Klassel, humanist chaplain at Rutgers, told mourners after the 30-minute vigil. “Everything that happens is an opportunity to grow and understand, an opportunity to change the attitudes we might have.”

On Friday, a protest in support of gay rights took place at Rutgers. And a moment of silence was held before the start of Saturday's football game.

Clementi's death is the latest in a string of recent incidents in which young teens took their own lives after being bullied because they were gay.
