“The entire University community is deeply shaken by Hayden’s death,” he said. “We are heartbroken to lose someone so young and full of promise, and our hearts go out to her family and loved ones as they grieve for her. I know the entire Fordham family will keep Hayden, her family and loved ones in their thoughts and prayers.”

There will be a prayer service at 9 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 21, in the Blessed Rupert Mayer, S.J., Chapel, Lowenstein Center, Room 221. All members of the University community are invited.
