The Manresa Program in Martyrs’ Court Jogues
The newly renovated Martyrs’ Court Jogues Residential College is the new home of the Manresa Scholars Program, which began in the fall of 2011. The residence hall houses classroom space equipped with Smart technology, a kitchen, study nooks, and a small chapel.
You and approximately 150 of your fellow first-year students are invited to participate in this unique place on campus, where the lines between what is learned inside the classroom and what is learned outside disappear. Students, staff and faculty share the common project of deciding how the members of the Martyrs’ Court Jogues Residential College and the Manresa Program spend the coming year living and learning together and work collaboratively to make this project a success.
When considering where you will live in your first year at Fordham…IMAGINE
Walking down the hall from your room to a dynamic seminar with a professor from Fordham’s internationally renowned faculty.
Collaborating with other students, staff and faculty to design social, service and educational activities and events.
Exploring the world’s greatest city with faculty and staff members as your guides.
Attending seminars, study sessions and even film viewings in lounges equipped with the latest multimedia technology.
Meeting with mentors and advisors from Academic Affairs, Student Affairs, and Campus Ministry, doors away from where you live.
Students choosing to live in Martyrs’ Court Jogues also choose to be Manresa Scholars, and are enrolled in a seminar taught by one of Fordham’s internationally-recognized teacher-scholars who also serve as the student’s academic advisor. In these small classes, Manresa Scholars get to know their professor-advisors and fellow students, dig deeper into the subjects under study, explore questions about the value and meaning of liberal arts education in the Jesuit tradition and integrate in-class learning with extracurricular activities that take advantage of Fordham’s location in New York City.
