What Students Are Saying

3.47 Average Rating
The university offer excellent academics in a major cosmopolitan city. The classes can be rigorous or easier depending on how much you decide to challenge yourself. The core curriculum allows the university's students to become well-rounded, knowledgeable individuals.
Anelisa from North Miami Beach, FL
Fordham is an academically competitive institution in the heart of New York, with a thorough and challenging core. That being said, there is a campus in the Bronx that allows for a traditional college atmosphere, and a campus at Lincoln Center in Manhattan; a block from Central Park and on the cusp of Hell's Kitchen. While Fordham holds its ground in terms of location and academics, it is expensive both on and off campus and has small class sizes, both of which demand a student with intellect and ambition to succeed.
