Poulsbo campus closed following apparent suicide

Olympic College’s Poulsbo campus was closed Thursday following an apparent suicide.

According to Poulsbo Police Chief Dan Schoonmaker, law enforcement received the call shortly before 8 a.m, and the scene was cleared around 10 a.m.

Despite the college canceling classes for the day and evening, no threat is posed to students or staff, the chief said.

The body of the female Olympic College student was found in a restroom on campus. Chief deputy coroner Russ Reuther stated that the coroner’s office had notified next of kin and that the girl was underage.

“We encourage anyone experiencing grief to reach out to OC Counselors, who will be on-site at the Poulsbo Campus tomorrow and next week in the Student Services Office,” a release from Olympic College reads.
