Student Life

The city is just the start.

Male and Female Student on LawnSo you’re a student in New York City, the greatest city in the world, and you’re thinking, could there possibly be more to campus life than that?

There is. We promise.

Making lifelong friends starts with getting involved in things like clubs (we’ve got more than 160) and intramurals (basketball, soccer, et cetera). It’s about serving others inside your community and outside our gates, learning to lead and stretching your boundaries (experimental theater, anyone?). At Fordham, the city is just the start—your community is here.

Educating the whole person

College life is going to shape you in so many ways. Much of that growth will occur in the classroom; much of it, though, comes from your engagement with the community and the people in it. Growing the whole person—not just intellectually but morally and emotionally—is a cornerstone of Jesuit education and a central part of the Division of Student Affairs' mission. From Career Services to Student Leadership, the Ram Van to Residential Life-- the staff and students that make up all our offices are constantly at work nurturing this growth.
