Marshall Senior Killed Monday in Shooting

    A memorial was held at UCSD Oct. 3 in Center Hall.

    Alcantar, a senior ethnic studies major, was part of Oasis’s Summer Bridge program — a program designed to help incoming freshmen transition into campus life and university classes.

    At the memorial, participants reflected on Alcantar’s constant positivity and goodwill. He went out of his way to say hello if he saw a friend walking around campus. The students at the memorial made plans to raise money for the family.

    “I think something I’ll never forget about Julio is that he was positive,” Marshall senior Sashieana Scott said at the memorial. “He always turned a negative into a positive; he always had a smile on his face.

    Other friends remember Alcantar as a high achiever who wanted to help people in dangerous neighborhoods.

    “He really believed he would go back and be that shining light for everybody,” Muir College alumnus Jorge Narvaez said.
