Michael Gannon, a sophomore in the Carroll School of Management (CSOM) from Lake Forest, Illinois, was found dead in his Walsh Hall dorm room this afternoon. The cause of death has not yet been determined, but police have ruled out foul play.

In a letter to students, Patrick Rombalski, vice president for Student Affairs, informed the student body of Gannon’s passing.

“It is with sadness that I inform you of the passing of one of our students today on campus,” Rombalski wrote.

Gannon’s sister, Michelle Gannon, is a senior in CSOM.

Rombalski also informed the community of the availability of counseling to any who may require them.

“I want you to know that counseling services are available to students this evening and throughout the weekend,” Rombalski wrote. “We encourage you to avail yourself of these resources if needed, and to look out for one another as we as a community deal with this untimely death.”
