Weinberg senior Ananya Agrawal died on Saturday evening, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

In a Sunday email to the Northwestern community, Dean of Students Todd Adams said there is no evidence of foul play, but the cause of Agrawal’s death is still undetermined.

According to Adams’ email, Agrawal was from Mumbai, India. On campus, he was a member of Phi Mu Alpha — a music fraternity — and played the saxophone in the Northwestern University Marching Band for two years. The chemistry major was recently named the recipient of the Chemistry Department Scholar Award for his work and honors thesis.

“Ananya is remembered for his jovial, energetic personality, who selflessly cared about his friends and brothers and was deeply committed to his academic pursuits,” Adams said.

The Phi Mu Alpha fraternity will hold a memorial Wednesday at 6 p.m. in Alice Millar Chapel.
