Prospective Students

Fordham University is steeped in a tradition of service and social justice.  Fordham students, faculty, staff and administrators have and continue to engage in partnership with community organizations to make our world a better place.  If you are considering Fordham University, be assured that there are lots of opportunities for you to learn from, engage in and reflect on your experiences in service with the surrounding communities as a volunteer, urban intern, work study student or service-learner. 

Urban Plunge

We encourage accepted first year students to consider applying to the Urban Plunge Program.   In this pre-orientation program, students have the opportunity to learn more about the communities surrounding Fordham.
