The student, who lives off campus, is well and no longer contagious, according to a statement by SDSU Student Health Services Medical Director Cynthia Cornelius.

Symptoms of mumps include fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite and swelling of the salivary glands, which causes puffy cheeks and a tender, swollen jaw.
