CSS Events and Activities

Rose Hill's Commuter Student Services and Commuting Students Association provide programming that is open to the entire Fordham community, while keeping the needs of commuter students in mind. Below is a list of our annually held events. For more information about times and dates of our events, please visit us at our CSS and CSA OrgSync pages!

Freshman Commuter BBQ

During the summer, new commuter students are invited to attend a FREE summer outdoor barbecue, where they have the opportunity to meet other new students, meet campus administrators and tour the campus. This is a commuter student’s first chance to meet with their Commuter Assistant (CA) group, and start to build relationships with those upper-classmen. At the barbecue, students learn more about student activities, New Student Orientation and commuter life at Fordham.

Commuter Breakfast Program

Commuter Student Services (CSS) sponsors a weekly breakfast program for commuter students. If you’re hungry when you get to school or just want the opportunity to mingle with other students in the Student Lounge, then this is your chance! Come hang out in the Student Lounge in the basement of McGinley for breakfast before you go to class. More details can be found on the Commuter Student Services OrgSync portal!

Community Meetings

One Thursday every month the Commuter Assistant’s host Community Meetings during the activity block for first year students. These meetings typically involve a fun activity or competition, as well as important announcements from various departments on campus who are here to support all students. At the end of each meeting, students get into their CA groups to check-in and connect with their CA. Food and prizes are provided, we hope you like pizza!

Commuter Week

Every Spring Semester, Commuter Student Services and the Commuting Students Association plan a themed week of programming and events open to the entire Fordham Community. Events take place at commuter-friendly times during the day where students can unwind, have fun, and win prizes!


This annual event takes place right before Thanksgiving. It’s a time for the Fordham community to come together for a meal and enjoy an assortment of entertainment for the evening. All nonperishable food items and monetary donations are given to POTS (Part of the Solution), a non-profit organization serving the local community. Attendees have the opportunity to win raffles from excursions in NYC to designer products.
