Considering Fordham?

If you’re excited to learn more about Fordham, you’ve come to the right place to figure out the best way to move your college search forward. You probably have some big questions; we believe we have the answers. Our visitation program ensures that you are informed by fact and can be guided by feeling.

Take a look below to see if you recognize any of these questions and see what we recommend.

What is Fordham all about? A great starting point! Our virtual information session provides you with an overview of Fordham the Jesuit University of New York. And, the opportunity to engage with admission counselors and students.

What does it feel like to go to school in New York City? Come for a student-led, guided tour. There’s nothing like summer in New York on either our Lincoln Center or Rose Hill campus. Can’t make it to campus? We have weekly Guided Virtual Tours.

What do the students think? Our Ram Talk is a weekly program run by students, for students. Come to this Q&A to hear what our students have to say about: professors’ office hours, joining clubs, the best place to get a slice of pizza, and pretty much anything else you might be wondering about.

Still not sure what visit option is right for you?

Call 718-817-4000 and ask to talk with an admission counselor. We'll be happy to talk you through all your options.
