A Northwestern student was found dead inside his Foster House dorm room late Tuesday morning, the university said this afternoon in a statement.
Matthew S. Sunshine, a SESP freshman from Cold Spring Harbor, NY, passed away due to currently undetermined causes, Vice President for Student Affairs William J. Banis said in the statement, which the university has sent to “students, faculty and staff on Evanston campus.”
“We extend our condolences to all of Matthew’s family and friends,” Banis said. “We join with them in this time of sorrow.”
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) staff and members of the University Chaplain’s office will be in Foster House this evening.
Banis said the Evanston Police Department, assisted by University Police, is investigating the matter.
