  • Jun-21-2011 I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Even though I live in New York City, I can tell I'm going to enjoy going to Fordham. The atmosphere is really unique and there are people from all over the country! I've met people from California, New Jersey and Illinois during orientation. What is really nice about going to Fordham is that I am able to stay in contact with my friends who are going to CUNYs or schools like NYU and whatnot!

    College is an adjustment for everyone, and some students struggle more than others. I definitely struggled my first year or two, and transferring to a school closer to home was something I considered. That being said, I think it's who you are and what your attitude is more than the college, itself, that really defines the experience you'll have. If you put yourself out there by getting involved with clubs, sports, musical groups, or other activities (AND you have a positive attitude), you'll meet truly wonderful people here. Student clubs always have tons of programming going on throughout the week and on the weekends, so there are always fun, wholesome things to do. There is a large drinking culture, but you definitely don't have to be a part of it to fit in and find a nice group of friends. And of course, there's plenty of other things to do if drinking is not your thing. It's easy to get to the different boroughs of NYC via train, subway, or bus (but sometimes it can take awhile), and there really is always something fun to do in New York and even on right on campus.

    I love everything about life at Fordham! To put it simply, I've never had more fun in my life than I have this past semester. Fordham's Campus Activities Board does a great job at planning exciting events and concerts on campus regularly, and there is always something going on to look forward to. Truly though, the most amazing part about Fordham is its proximity to Manhattan and the endless opportunities for entertainment that are a quick subway ride away. I can honestly say it is impossible to be bored while living here. When I want a break from the crazy city life, Fordham's campus is so calm and peaceful that I can relax by a tree and read a book or just hang out in the student center. Whether you crave the hustle and bustle of New York City life or the peace and safety of a lovely tree-filled private campus, Fordham is the place to be.

    There is enough diversity here for me to open up and explore different ideas and people, and learn things from different perspectives. Besides enjoying the learning atmosphere, the physical atmosphere itself is breathtaking. It is a world separate from the Bronx neighborhood once you're inside the gates.
