Junior engineering student Johnny Anthony Rosales, 29, died early Wednesday morning at a local hospital in Oxford. He had collapsed from heat stroke during ROTC physical training Monday.
"This is a tragic accident that appears, initially, to be nothing more than just an accident," Chancellor Robert Khayat said. "The entire university community grieves over this loss, and our hearts ache for the Rosales family."
The university has requested that all campus ROTC units, Army, Navy and Air Force, immediately review their physical fitness training procedures.
Jeffrey Alford, assistant vice chancellor for University Relations, said there are no indications of hazing or any other unauthorized activity during the training exercise.
A military investigation is planned.
