Local media reported that Yuze "Frank" Wang, a 24-year-old senior originally from China, drowned after jumping at the Gozalandia waterfall in San Sebastian on March 1.

MSU did not have other details on the death, which remains under investigation, deputy spokeswoman Heather Young said.

He studied supply chain and was involved in some of the international student organizations on campus, Young said.

A memorial was held Monday night at the MSU Alumni Chapel, the school's Office of Cultural & Academic Transitions reported on its Facebook page.
