Overall, your college experience is what you make of it. I play in the biggest and best college playground of all time, NYC. So anything that the school lacks like great food, one can find a block away. Some of my favorite college experiences include attending lectures by famous professors and scholars such as Cornel West, attending student discounted shows at the lincoln center symphony next door to Fordham, and attending student run plays and dance showcases. Fordham in my opinion has the best combination of location, community, and workload. You have alot of time to explore and be exposed to different fields of study until you decide your tract. I have friends in business, theatre, dance, computer science, pre-med, political science, etc., and they are all interesting, eccletic, and fun. Fordham also partners with Columbia and NYU to offer higher level courses to students from each university depending on the field. Theology students from Columbia and NYU will come to Fordham and our engineering and bioengineering students will go to them.
Fordham is great because it offers the resources to be competitively involved in any field from the start of college until you graduate and get hired which will happen if you go to Fordham!
