The student was identified as 22-year-old Andrew M. Magargle of Pasadena, Md.
Officers responded to a call at about 9:30 a.m. Friday, according to a statement released Saturday. Centre County coroner Scott Sayers says Magargle died as a result of chest trauma and his death has been ruled a suicide. It's the second fatal fall at the school in recent weeks.
In November 20-year-old Conor F. MacMannis, of Virginia, was killed when he fell from a balcony at Penn Tower apartments.
