An autopsy is scheduled for today for a Northwestern University student who was found dead in his campus dorm room Tuesday afternoon.

An email from Dean of Students Todd Adams to the university community this morning announced the death of engineering major Jason Arkin, who lived at 1835 Hinman Ave. and was from Overland Park, Kan.

He was pronounced dead at Evanston Hospital at 3:25 p.m.

A university spokesman said there was no indication of foul play.
