Welcome New Students!


Welcome new students! We in Campus Ministry are excited that you will be joining us in a few weeks. We invite you to discover the soul of Fordham by taking part in our diverse activities that engage your mind, heart, and soul. Rooted in the Fordham University Catholic, Jesuit identity, Campus Ministry offers numerous opportunities to learn about religious traditions, explore your spirituality, engage intellectually with faith, and serve humanity.

Our thriving student-led programs include liturgical and music ministries, spiritual retreats, and service projects with the Pedro Arrupe Volunteers. Join a Christian Life Community or Praise and Worship to nourish your faith and explore Ignatian spirituality, or take advantage of our multifaith ministries, which include Muslim, Jewish, Orthodox Christian, and other Christian student organizations. Campus Ministry is committed to enriching the spiritual and religious lives of all students, of any faith or background.
