About Global Transition

Global Transition is a program to welcome undergraduate international students to Fordham and help with adjustment to the first days and weeks here. During Global Transition, new students will have the opportunity to meet and get to know other international students from all over the world, attend important and helpful information sessions, and engage in some fun activities/events. During Global Transition, you will also be able to ask current Fordham students all the questions you may have about life at Fordham.

In August 2018, Global Transition welcomed students from over 35 countries on each campus.

Global Transition 2019

Global Transition 2019 will run from Tuesday, August 20 - Saturday, August 24.
