OXFORD, Ohio -- A student was found dead Sunday morning at Miami University of Ohio.

University officials identified the student as Jaclyn Wulf, a sophomore from Westlake. Her friends found her body in her dorm room in Swing Hall. Wulf was taken to McCullough-Hyde Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

9 On Your Side's Amy Wadas went to Miami on Monday, where she learned Wulf was a psychology major and member of the Alpha Xi Delta sorority.

The death of Wulf shocked students campus-wide. 

"The whole university, all care about each other," spokeswoman Claire Wagner of Miami said.

Fellow student Jake Walker said Wulf was nice and personable.

"I had a couple group projects with her, she seemed very enthusiastic," he said.

Last year, student Alex Boardman had English class with Wulf. He lived in the same dorm building, just one floor below her. He said the dorm has quieted since Wulf's death. 

"Normally there's a lot of people around in the rec room, they're all talking," he said. "But I think in light of what's happened this weekend, everybody is kind of into themselves."

In a 911 call obtained by 9 On Your Side, one of Wulf's Residential Advisors said that Wulf had a lot to drink the night before. Her cause of death remains under investigation. The Butler County coroner will run toxicology tests, but those results would take weeks to be returned.

"If you think someone's in trouble, talk to them, tell your RA, counseling services or the dean," Wagner advises.

Wagner said the university is offering counseling for students affected by Wulf’s death. The may call (513) 529-2222 if they need assistance.

Two students have died within a month at Miami University. On Oct. 26, 19-year-old Jacob Jarmon was found dead near train tracks on campus. Oxford police estimated Jarmon was struck by a train at about 3 a.m.
