Close friends remembered University of New Hampshire student Olivia Rotondo’s self-confidence and sarcasm Monday, one day after police said Rotondo and a Rochester, N.Y., man died of apparent drug overdoses following an electronic music festival in New York City.
“She was one of those people that, she walked in the room, and her sense of humor, her personality . . . it was just infectious,” said Rory Carvalho, 20, a UNH junior from Andover, Mass.
Rotondo’s death brought together a community of students at UNH, friends said.
“We’re all very good friends of Olivia, so we’re all just supporting each other,” Carvalho said. “That’s all we can really do.”
Rotondo, 20, from North Providence, R.I., died Saturday night after attending the Electric Zoo Music Festival, New York police said. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
