A deer jumped through a classroom window on DeSales University's campus in Center Valley Wednesday morning.
The Lehigh County Communications Center reports the deer is deceased but had no details about the incident except that there were no injuries reported to humans. No word yet whether the deer was a doe or a buck.
Students tweeted about the incident.

Julia Duffy writes: "Only at DeSales would a deer jump in a classroom window."
Tracy Jordan wasn't surprised. "Seems like it wouldn't be that odd of an occurrence considering the 400-acre campus with only 24 buildings is located in area of the Lehigh Valley heavily populated with woods, farm fields and golf holes."
DeSales spokesman Tom McNamara said the shocking start of the school day sent students running out of the first-floor classroom in Dooling Hall and left the deer hobbling about and bleeding profusely from an apparent broken leg.
If any students weren't fully awake, they were once the buck brought his rutting season into their academic world.
One student was taken to a local hospital for cuts, which McNamara said were likely inflicted by flying glass as the deer broke through the window.
Campus security shot and killed the deer.
McNamara speculates that since it's the rutting or mating period for whitetails, the buck mistook his reflection in the window for a competitor or the object of his sexual desires.
