More Stories from Fordham College at Rose Hill
I really wanted an internship at this particular law firm. I got names from the alumni directory and sent out 20 emails—they didn’t know who I was. My friend said, ‘Maybe you’ll get one or two responses.’ I got 15 responses, including from partners at the firm! And each one was more willing to help me than the last.

Every job since college has had a Fordham connection. Right after graduation, I was a New York City Urban Fellow, which I got through Fordham. Then I worked in the press office of the Manhattan District Attorney, and the deputy communications director was a Fordham alum. And now I work with two or three other Fordham alumni. So I feel like everywhere I go, it’s like finding family, really.

That sense of community and belonging you feel here? It stays with you.
Fordham College at Rose Hill is home to people who are curious and collaborative by nature. There’s always someone ready to help you take an idea further and bring out the best in you. That doesn’t go away after you graduate. Rams stay connected because they bring out the best in each other.
I'm a cardiothoracic surgery physician assistant (PA) and proudly wear a Fordham scrub cap of my own design. A surgeon I work with is also an alum with his own Fordham scrub cap—we bonded immediately! Surgical teams can be somewhat hierarchical, but the beauty of a Fordham education is its power to overcome all boundaries. I'm proud to be a Ram.
