I'm a dance major and being at this school has been a blessing.

It was great getting to know all the classmates, and the professors were helpful when needed. However, the administration, especially the dean, was not helpful throughout my four years of college life.

I'm an upcoming junior who has had many opportunities because the people at Fordham, no matter who they are, will always be there for you. I'm an editor for my college newspaper, I've had an internship, I'm a president of a club on campus. If you want something and you work hard for it, you'll get there.
