President’s Council Engagement

As the President’s Council seeks to fulfill the mission of the Council and help develop the next generation of Fordham leaders, many members guest speak on campus, attend student mentoring events, host events, and serve on panel discussions. Following is a sampling of this important leadership engagement.

Twenty-Two President’s Council members participated in our annual outreach to top prospective students. Telling their unique and compelling Fordham story, President’s Council members urge top applicants to “say yes” to Fordham! Following is a response one of the volunteers received from a student recipient:

Mr. Nelson,

Hello, my name is Elizabeth Meehan, and I am definitely considering Fordham for college. While Fordham has not been my first choice (I have a conditional offer from the University of Cambridge), your letter encouraged me to ask more in-depth about the experiences you had in NYC and their effects on your education. Right now I am considering majoring in international political economy; your background definitely helps me in this area.

My dad always stresses that his Jesuit education at Loyola University in Chicago gave him a solid liberal arts education that serves him well. What experiences did you have in NYC, as well as abroad if applicable, that helped you in the future? Being a Jesuit university, what opportunities of service to the community were available? Lastly, if you had to sum up Fordham in one word, what would it be? Any advice you can offer would be most appreciated. Thank you.
