You can hear it. You can feel it. An oasis in the capital of the world, Fordham is passion, exploration, diversity
and inclusion. Fordham is where I became aware of my potential. Fordham is where I found my path. I chose Fordham because I walked onto
campus and knew this was where I needed to be. I chose Fordham because I loved the balance of the city location and the traditional campus. I was drawn to the Jesuit education, developing the whole
person. Fordham is Catholic and Jesuit and welcomes all faiths. A Jesuit education is about compassion
conscience competence commitment caring for the whole person empathy acting
selflessly justice human dignity engagement with the world giving back boredom has opened doors shaped Who I am
