About the Manresa Program
The newly renovated Loyola Hall is home to approximately 125 first-year Fordham College at Rose Hill (FCRH) and Gabelli School of Business (GSB) students in the Manresa Scholars Program. It houses classrooms that are equipped with SMART technology, a kitchen, study nooks, event space, and the St. Ignatius of Loyola Chapel.
Manresa students are enrolled in a course taught by one of Fordham's most talented professor-scholars. Each professor also serves as the academic advisor and intellectual mentor to each student.
Professor Robert Parmach, Freshman Dean of FCRH, is the Faculty Director of the program.
The Residence Hall Staff The staff in Loyola Hall consists of one full-time resident director, four resident assistants, four academic live-in tutors, and one Jesuit priest-in-residence. This staff complements the academic experience by expanding each resident’s intellectual, spiritual, and social growth within the residential setting through a variety of regular and enriching programs.
