Penn State officials have confirmed that the body of Jack Crean, a freshman student from Boalsburg, Pa., was found at the HUB construction site this morning.

University spokesperson Lisa Powers said in an email that university police discovered Crean's body inside the closed area sometime between 10:36 and 11 a.m. The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear.

Powers says that Student Affairs staff have notified Crean's family and roommate, and that counseling is available to anyone impacted by his death.

"It's a sorrowful start to the academic year and our hearts go out to Jack's family and friends," Powers says. "The death of any student is painful and tragic, and we are deeply impacted by this loss."

An autopsy is expected to be performed by the  Centre County Coroner.
