Message from the PLC International Parents

Welcome to the family of international parents at Fordham, and congratulations to your Fordham student. You should be very proud of your student's acceptance to one of the most special academic communities in the world. Our son, Vikram, is a rising senior at the Gabelli School of Business. It has been a pleasure to see Fordham's positive influence on him over the past couple of years. Like Vikram, your student now has the opportunity to pursue a rigorous education while living in New York City and being nurtured by caring Jesuit principles. As members of the International Parents Leadership Council, our goal is to enhance engagement between Fordham and the international parent community. We hope you will consider serving on the council, and we look forward to your active participation. 

Balu and Jyothi Sarma, PAR '19
