Student Priscilla Morales filled in The New York Times, confessing that Fordham students recently started climbing the bell tower after hearing that a door was open or that there was a found passageway.

It is reportedly common for students at the university to climb the Keating Hall clock tower, touch the bell and take photos of the NY city skyline from outside one of its windows before they graduate.

Sydney Monfries, 22, fell inside the Keating Clock tower, according to a statement from Fordham President Joseph M. McShane.

Monfries and a group of friends climbed the tower at roughly 3 a.m. She was rushed to hospital where she later died of her injuries.

Monfries had been "studying journalism with a focus on digital technology", the Daily News reported.

She said that the university is investigating how the students were able to get into the building where the clock tower is, which she said was locked.

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".
