    A Dartmouth College student and native of the Philadelphia area died Friday following a sudden illness.

    The Valley News reports Blaine Steinberg, a Dartmouth junior and Penn Charter High School alum who is originally from Wynnewood, passed away at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

    It is unclear what illness caused her death and college officials did not immediately return requests for comment.

    Dartmouth President Phil Hanlon sent an email to students and staff Friday evening that said college officials had "been in touch with Blaine's family and shared our deepest condolences with them at this very difficult time," according to the Valley News.

    The email also said counseling would be available to the Dartmouth community.
