Fordham University confirmed Sydney Paige Monfries, 22, from Portland, Oregon, died in a letter to students Sunday. School President Joseph McShane wrote: ‘It is with great sadness that I report that Sydney Monfries, a senior at Fordham College at Rose Hill, died today after sustaining a fall inside the Keating Clock tower in the early hours of the morning. There are no words sufficient to describe the loss of someone so young and full of promise — and mere weeks from graduation, Fordham will confer a bachelor’s degree upon Sydney posthumously, which we will present to her parents at the appropriate time.’ The New York Police Department said Monfries went to the Keating Hall clock tower with her friends around 3am. Police said the senior fell while trying to get a better view of the city’s skyline.
