EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Authorities say a Northwestern University student has been found dead in his Evanston campus dormitory.

The university and Cook County medical examiner say 20-year-old Jason Arkin was pronounced dead Tuesday afternoon at Evanston Hospital. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday.

Arkin was a third-year student studying engineering. He was from Overland Park, Kansas. Northwestern Dean of Student Todd Adam sent a note to student asking anyone who needed help to let him know.

Northwestern said in a statement that the cause of Arkin’s death isn’t yet known. School spokesman Bob Rowley says there was no indication of foul play.
