A Message from the Freshman Dean
Dear Class of 2024,
Welcome to the Gabelli School of Business, which will offer you countless opportunities to grow into a successful professional.
You will soon arrive at Fordham to begin an exploration. Who are you? What are your interests? What do you believe? What do you need to do to realize your dreams? The more you take advantage of everything the Gabelli School provides, the better positioned you will be to become a business leader.
Your relationships at Fordham will define your experience. I encourage you to make connections with your deans, professors, the Jesuits, and various administrators on campus, as well as with your classmates. The Gabelli School’s integrated business core curriculum will help you to hone your teamwork and interpersonal skills. You’ll find that as your relationship circle grows, your resources increase and your professional network will begin to take shape.
It is an exciting time at the Gabelli School of Business. Those of you studying at Rose Hill will get to experience Hughes Hall, where technological innovations and team-oriented facilities will have a substantial impact on your educational experience. Your counterparts at Lincoln Center, who are your classmates as well, will have access to the newly opened Pei Freed Cobb-designed tower on West 62nd Street, also a state-of-the-art learning and living environment.
Congratulations, Gabelli Class of 2024, and welcome to Fordham!
Looking forward to working with each of you,
Assistant Dean for Freshmen
