A college student from Glen Ellyn who died after being injured in a fall will be remembered with a candlelight vigil at the University of Iowa on Wednesday night.

Members of Andrew Mogni's fraternity say the vigil will be focused on celebrating his life, rather than mourning his death.

The 20-year-old was studying abroad in Rome when he was knocked down during a mugging.

Mogni graduated from Benet Academy in Lisle, where he played baseball.
