Majors: I am excited that Fordham offers so many classes for my Psychology major and that they offer a minor in Irish Studies, which I would love to pursue. I wish there were more classes for the Irish Studies minor, though.

Nightlife: I enjoy the off campus bars sometimes, but I wish there were more options on campus of things to do without being punished.

Greek Life: Fordham does not have Greek Life and I'm glad of that because I think it's paying for friends and full of cliques.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus so I do not know how cheap/convenient it is, but I have heard great things about living off campus from students who do and I definitely want to live off campus to avoid having to deal with ResLife anymore.

Campus Strictness: I feel that the campus is way too strict in many ways. Since we do not have many places to safely drink if we do not feel comfortable going to bars off campus, I feel that the dorms should be less strict about alcohol use. Also, the visitation policy is absolutely ridiculous. We pay so much to live in the dorms and should be allowed to have anyone we want to visit us be able to stay with us whenever we want them to, without getting fined for spending the night. We are in college and are capable of making our own decisions about who we want in our rooms and the security should not try to control that.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Everyone here knows how to take care of themselves and drugs and alcohol have never seemed to be a problem.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I do not go to many sports events, but they always make the campus exciting. I love the athletic facilities here and use them all the time.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus because of the security at the gate, however I feel that the security in the dorms is too tight and we have a right to have whoever guests we want to whenever we want to have them, as long as we escort them onto campus ourselves.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: They describe Fordham as being in the city, but it is in the Bronx, which limits the local attractions. You are a 20 minute train ride from Grand Central via Metro North or about an hour by subway. If you are looking for a true city experience, apply to the Lincoln Center campus. Rose Hill fits a more traditional college campus.

Fordham is nothing like what most students envision when they think of the typical college experience. You won't find any huge lecture halls, fraternities, or sororities, and you won't get lost trying to navigate a massive campus. Fordham prides itself in being a small, intimate setting, where professors value students as individuals and not one of hundreds in their class who get lost in the mix of things. With its prime locations, Fordham doesn't need to be a big school in order to offer the world to students because the heart of New York City and all of its opportunities are so accessible. Both campuses are beautiful, especially Rose Hill, with its old buildings and abundance of plant life in the midst of an urban setting, and even if it's not the athletics, something about the school will definitely make you proud to say you're a ram. 

No one would ever deny that Fordham has its flaws, like high prices and terrible food, but putting all of that aside, the experience that students have is a great one. The majority of students would still choose Fordham if they had a chance to start the college process all over again, and that right there says a lot. The education you receive and the fun you have, both on and off campus, make the downsides seem trivial in the long run, but only as long as you take full advantage of everything that Fordham and the city have to offer. Fordham is a great place to be, but it has to be the right fit for you, so before you make any decisions, visit the campus you plan on applying to and make sure it feels like home.
