Officials say an eastern Pennsylvania college student has been found dead off-campus.

In an email to students, Lehigh University officials say 19-year-old Hanlon MacDonald was found dead Thursday evening in her off-campus student apartment in Bethlehem.

Officials say MacDonald was a junior bio-engineering major from Albany, New York, and a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.

The Northampton County coroner tells WFMZ-TV her death does not appear to be suspicious. An autopsy has been scheduled.

The university is offering its condolences to MacDonald's family and friends. Officials say counselors will be available to talk to students in need of support.
