5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Every club in NYC along with music fests, gallery shows, music events, Brooklyn nightlife and late-night movie screenings are available.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Some of the policies are unfortunate because the overnight guest passes must be obtained 24 hours in advance to ensure no fine, but because of the Jesuit values and necessity of safety at a college in an urban setting.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms in the Lincoln Center housing are spacious with a full kitchen, living space with a dining tables, couch, and chairs, and bathrooms (one or two depending on the number of bedrooms).

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's the standard city battle to find off-campus housing.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The Manhattan campus that I attend is a block from Central Park, Columbus Circle, Lincoln Center, and the edge of Clinton/Hell's Kitchen, while still being considered the Upper West Side. If none of the free cultural events of the Opera, live Jazz at Lincoln Center, free shows at Central Park, Summerstage, or one of the numerous yoga and health clubs appeal to you, the subway is a block away and you can be anywhere in the city within an hour. Shopping nearby is expensive, but with a little exploring you're bound to find somewhere that fits your budget, and strolling down 5th Ave with a few friends is a totally acceptable way to burn a Saturday. We've had breakfast in front of Tiffany's once or twice.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The Manhattan campus is on the edge of Hell's Kitchen and at the Columbus Circle stop. You can go to China Town for take out, or to the Little Italy at the Bronx campus for the best Italian in the city. Anything you can dream of is within walking distance or a subway ride away.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The security measures taken at our campus have to be extreme because of the campus being in the middle of NYC. Because the campus apartments are so strict with overnight guests, guest passes, ect., most assaults happen in the city at clubs, parties, or apartments outside the campus. This is not as widely addressed within the university

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sporting events are held at the campus in the Bronx, and this leaves space between the Manhattan campus and the sporting events. Our sports teams aren't huge, but I think athletics at Fordham, along with any other school, help build the sense of community on campus. The athletic facilities reflect the same story and are present without being overwhelming, and all reflect back that our athletes are students above all and will be treated as students with a focus on academics.

4 College Freshman

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.

Diversity: There are many international students who I love to meet and talk to, but I feel like they feel shy and prefer to only hang out with each other.

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.
