NEW YORK —The Fordham community celebrated the grand opening of the newly renovated dining room at the Ultimate Dining Marketplace in the McGinley Center on the Rose Hill campus with a carnival of food, music and games on Nov. 3.
The dining room now features comfortable furniture, new lighting, plasma televisions and increased wireless connections. The space has been reconfigured to allow students to have privacy, conduct study groups, or just hang out with friends.
The first phase of the project was completed last September with the opening of a new servery with eight stations including a salad bar, a soup and sandwich station, a pizza station, a grill and a bakery.
Founded in 1841, Fordham is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to approximately 15,800 students in its five undergraduate colleges and its six graduate and professional schools. It has residential campuses in the Bronx, Manhattan and Tarrytown, and the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y.
