(WASHINGTON) — A student from Georgetown University died while he was on spring break in the Dominican Republic, but the school and authorities have released little information about the death.

Mark Adamsson was a junior enrolled in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, according to a campus-wide statement issued by Todd Olson, vice president for student affairs for Georgetown University.

The statement said that Adamsson was in the Dominican Republic with fellow classmates.

The cause of death was not disclosed, and calls to the school and Dominican authorities were not returned.

“I am deeply saddened by this news and know that it is difficult for the many members of the Georgetown community who know Mark,” Olson said in the school’s statement.

Georgetown officials have been in touch with Adamsson’s family and will provide support and assistance to them, Olson said.
