Student dies in third meningitis case on campus this school year
According to the study, custodians have been busy cleaning and sanitizing Robinson''s dorm room and common areas at the on-campus house where she lived in an attempt to ward of any additional cases of the deadly disease that infects the linings of the brain and spinal cord and attacks quickly.
Earlier this month, a student living in a different residence hall contracted the disease but recovered and returned to campus, and officials say there doesn''t seem to be any connection between the two students, the story stated.
A third student who contracted the disease in October of 2009 also recovered, the story noted.
The university, although not legally required to do so, has elected to make the information regarding the illnesses public, the story stated.
