Loyola Hall is the home of the Manresa Scholars Program. The Manresa Program is a rigorous and exciting integrated learning opportunity for first-year students at the Rose Hill campus.
If you are a Fordham College at Rose Hill (FCRH) student admitted to the Program, you will take a Manresa course from one of four options, taught by one of Fordham's most talented professor-scholars, who also serves as your academic core advisor. In these demanding small classes, you get to know your professor/advisor and classmates well, creatively investigate academic disciplines in the Ignatian tradition, engage with the community around you, explore questions about the value and meaning of liberal arts education in the Jesuit tradition, and integrate in-class learning with co-curricular activities that take advantage of Fordham's location in New York City and the intellectual curiosity of your peers.
If you are a Gabelli School of Business (GSB) student admitted to the Program, you will take one of three-course options, one of which is a specialized version of "The Ground Floor." This course introduces you to the foundations of business, prompts you to work with peers to develop a business plan, challenges you to think "entrepreneurially," and exposes you to multinational corporations in New York City.
