Fordham University is mourning the loss of a student who fell to her death from the campus clock tower just weeks before her graduation.

Christopher Rodgers, dean of students at Rose Hill, told The Ram in 2013 that since "the clock tower is rather risky, and therefore secured area of campus, students would likely face disciplinary action if they entered it". A spokesman for the University said, the access is always locked.

Fordham University confirmed the incident and sent a letter to students. Her Facebook page shows her with friends in different scenes around New York City: eating ice cream, hanging on a rooftop and at the Pride parade. "The thrill of danger is definitely a huge allure to going up".

"Regardless of rules and an arduous ascent, climbing to the Keating clock tower tops the bucket list of many Fordham students". The school said they will award Monfries a posthumous bachelor's degree.

However, another student said they aren't sure. They usually go late at night at around 1 or 2 a.m.to drink and see the view, ' Priscilla Morales told The New York Times. It had the caption, "Bell tower".
