Sydney Monfries, 22, a senior at New York City's Fordham University, died Sunday as a result of the injuries she sustained when she fell inside the campus' famed Keating Hall tower.
The school will award Monfries a posthumous bachelor's degree.
The university said authorized school officials "have sometimes given tours of the tower, in part to satisfy students' curiosity about it, and reduce the likelihood that they would attempt to enter the structure without authorization".
The incident occurred at roughly 3 a.m. when Monfries was climbing the tower at Keating Hall with other students, as they were reportedly trying to snap photos of the New York City skyline.
Eventually, she was airlifted out through a window then lowered to the ground to be taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. "You have to ride the ram", Huang said of a statue of the university's mascot, which students climb on to take pictures.
Sydney Monfries, 22, died on Sunday after breaking into the Bell Tower at the university's campus with a group of friends in the early hours of the morning.
The Post reported that students who climbed the tower and took photos described it as a "rite of passage" at the school. "I don't think they went up there with the intent thinking that it would be possible to fall".
The senior student fell through an opening in the stairs and plummeted 40 feet, sustaining trauma to her head and body, according to the New York Times.
Gina Vergel, a university spokeswoman, told The Post that the door to the clock tower is always locked and that only facilities and public safety staff should be able to access it. "You have to go into the tunnels underground and you have to go into the bell tower". But some said they have never heard of being allowed inside the tower. "If it is, it's kind of stupid", junior Linda Yenicag added to the CBS affiliate. She posted a video from the top on Snapchat early Sunday, the newspaper reports. Students say sneaking into the university's most recognizable building at night has always been a tradition for Fordham seniors.
