Another student is dead at a Colorado university and drinking may have been a factor in this one as well.

The body of a 20 year-old Bennett Bertoli, of Colorado State University, was found Saturday at a house across the street from campus.

Police were called to the scene after attempts to awaken the man were unsuccessful.

A cause of death has not been determined but alcohol is suspected.

Kathryn Mizke, a long-time friend of Bennett's, says it's a wake-up call to all college students.

"Someone is trying to tell us, especially the kids in Colorado, to be careful... to be more careful... to watch out not only for yourself but for your friends."

At least 4 other students at Colorado schools, including another CSU student Samantha Spady, have died since the beginning of the academic year.
