What Students Are Saying

3.49 Average Rating
Fordham University is a family with open arms waiting for you to walk in. Once you enter into the family, you are embraced and encouraged to tap into all of the family's resources. These resources WILL help your intellectual, moral and interpersonal development.

Fordham is a great place to really test out courses and see what you like. Although very large, the core (required courses to take throughout your year at Fordham) really tests your breadth of knowledge and can potentially lead you into different directions of study.With great professors and student peers, Fordham creates a great environment for academic achievement and for getting a fun college experience.
