  • Dorms are nice, but expensive. I would highly advise living ON CAMPUS your freshman year; it is a lot easier to make friends that way and the programs are helpful…

    There are a ton of options on campus including cosi and Hale & Hearty. And there are so many restaurants on Fordham Road and Arthur Avenue.

    The cafeteria was large, spacious, and had a copious amount of good food. I even got free desert whilst visiting!

    I happened to like the food selection but most of the students don't but one thing is most definite is that the food is pricey

    The cafe offers Red Mango, and soups and sandwiches. These are meant to be supplemental to cooking in the apartment and eating out in the city. An $800 meal plan is mandatory freshman year for each semester.

    The main cafeteria is the biggest complaint on campus. That being said everything else about Fordham is great. There are many alternatives to the main cafeteria. There are three other places to eat on campus that offers cafe-styled food, i.e. paninis, heroes, and soups, and off campus is Arthur Avenue! However, the buffet styled cafeteria tends to be the main eatery, but it also tends to be a hit or miss. The food isn't great, but I would NEVER dismiss this school for that tiny detail.

    Ugh. Food at Fordham is the worst. FCLC doesn't even have a real cafeteria - although they are building a new one to go along with the new freshman dorms which will supposedly have an all-you-can-eat format (as normal schools do).
