KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Western Michigan University has identified a student found dead on campus early Thursday.

Nineteen-year-old Alyssa Olafson from Allendale was found dead in her room in Eicher Hall at 1:21 a.m. after suffering an apparent cardiac arrest. Emergency responders were not able to revive her when she was found, and an autopsy has been completed in Lansing, though determining the exact cause of her death could take several weeks

The Allendale High School graduate was a pre-health and human service's major in her first year at WMU, making the Dean's List in her first semester on campus last fall.
