A 22-year-old Fordham University was crtically injured as she climbed the school's bell tower early Sunday with other students to snap

University officials said Monfries died after losing her footing and falling some 30 feet onto a landing below. "As the clock tower is a rather risky, and therefore secured, area of campus, students would likely face disciplinary action if they entered it".

Fordham University confirmed the incident and sent a letter to students.

In New York, a 22-year-old student died after she fell from about ten meters in height from the bell tower of your University. Police said the group of seniors wanted to get a view of the city skyline, WABC reported.

"There are no words sufficient to describe the loss of someone so young and full of promise - and mere weeks from graduation".

Keating Hall was locked before the students gained entry to the tower, Fordham's Senior Director of Communications Gina Vergel told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The school will award Monfries a posthumous bachelor's degree. Before this could happen, however, it is presumed that Monfries stepped into a hole in the narrow staircase leading up to the bell tower, resulting in a fall that ultimately led to her death.

A Fordham spokesperson told the Daily News, "The student apparently climbed into the clock tower with friends". "I think a large part of the reason people want to do this so badly is that the school doesn't allow it", said Patrick Burke, Fordham College at Rose Hill '14. She was slated to graduate next month with a major in journalism. "Over the years, a very small number of students have been found in the area, and the circumstances have usually been simple curiosity", the dean, Christopher Rodgers said. "I, personally, never heard about that. If it is, it's kind of stupid", junior Linda Yenicag added to the CBS affiliate.

"It's like a senior thing to go on the most popular building on campus", one student said.

Shortly before she died, Sydney uploaded a video to Snapchat from inside the bell tower. "He told me some seniors (wanted to go) to the tower to take some pictures and have a good time before graduating".
