• Does Fordham provide an information session as part of the tour?
We do not offer a standard information session as part of the group tour experience. Our student ambassadors who lead the tour are very knowledgeable and involved in the Fordham community and are happy to answer any questions during your tour. If there is a question you would prefer to ask an admission officer, you may come back to the Office of Undergraduate Admission and ask to speak with an admission representative. If an individual student is interested in attending an information session on a different day than your group tour, please see that option on our website under ‘Visits & Campuses’ and have the student register accordingly.
• How do I keep in contact with Fordham after my visit?
We will ask you to fill out an inquiry card before you go out on your tour, which will give you an opportunity to submit your name, email address, and mailing address so we may keep in contact with you and let you know what’s going on at Fordham. During your visit, you may also ask the receptionist for your admission counselor’s business card. Each counselor is assigned a territory so feel free to ask who your territory manager is during your visit.
