Gonzalez, from El Monte, California, was a junior studying design. She was in the middle of a semester studying abroad at Strate College of Design in Paris. The particulars of her death are not available at this time.

CSULB will hold a vigil for her Saturday at 4 p.m. 

“I’m deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Long Beach State University student Nohemi Gonzalez. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this sad time,” President Jane Close Conoley said in the statement.

“Our university stands with our nearly eighty foreign exchange students from France as they struggle with this tragedy. We will extend all support necessary to comfort them. We will also extend support to all students, faculty and staff who are in need.”

There were conflicting reports about her age, with some reports saying she was 23 and others saying she was 20.

Three other CSULB students that were in Paris on the study abroad program are unharmed, according to the Los Angeles Times.
