PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A University of Oregon student died Saturday at Shasta Lake in California.

The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office said 21-year-old Dylan Pieters was found in a tent on the shore Saturday morning. Officials said he wasn’t breathing and medics performed CPR but he could not be revived. 

Investigators said he had been drinking Friday night but it’s unclear whether alcohol contributed to his death. There are no signs of foul play.

The university confirmed Pieters was a business administration major and member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. 

Hundreds of UO students go to Shasta Lake every year. 

A statement from the University of Oregon said students are returning early from the trip in light of Pieters’ death. 

Initially, the university released a statement, in part, saying,

As devastating as this sudden passing is, it is important to point out that this tragedy is connected to an unauthorized tradition among many college students. Students from many institutions have a history of demonstrating poor life choices during visits to Lake Shasta. These activities are contrary to the values of the university and fraternity and sorority organizations.”

However, the university later updated its statement, noting the “insensitive tone.”

A representative for Phi Gamma Delta declined to comment.

The UO’s updated statement: 

The Division of Student Life has received word that a Dylan Pietrs, a 21 year old business administration major and member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, died in an incident at Lake Shasta this weekend. The incident will be fully reviewed by authorities in Shasta County and at this time the full facts and details remain unknown.

The death is tragic, and the university offers its deepest sympathy to family and friends of Dylan and the communities he was a part of at the University of Oregon.

It is our understanding that UO students are returning from Lake Shasta early in light of this terrible event. We encourage our students to seek out counseling support from the University Counseling and Testing Center if they are affected by this tragic event. The dean of students’ office also has drop-in hours from 1-5 p.m. each business day in Oregon Hall.

Please join us in offering our sincere condolences to all affected by this incident
