Welcome from Dean Mast

Maura Mast

Welcome to Fordham College at Rose Hill, where you join a thriving institution with a long and proud history. Established almost 175 years ago and deeply rooted in the Jesuit tradition, the college has educated generations of men and women with a commitment to academic excellence and service to the wider community. As Fordham graduates become leaders in public and professional life, they also use their gifts for the advancement of human dignity and social justice.

At Rose Hill you will find an ideal place to learn, think and grow. We are an outstanding liberal arts college, benefiting from the resources of a major research university and centered in one of the world’s greatest cities. Our world-class faculty of dedicated teachers and innovative scholars will challenge you. Opportunities for undergraduate research will help you discover and develop new interests and talents. New York City will offer you countless cultural excursions and internship opportunities.

Fordham College at Rose Hill is also a very international school: half of our students complete international experiences, some of them at the Fordham centers in England, Spain, and South Africa and others at institutions of higher education around the world. The green expanse of our beautiful campus will also provide a setting in which to reflect on your experiences and make lifelong friends.

As you enter the college, make it your own. Explore your intellectual interests, get to know your professors, join our clubs, teams, ministry organizations, and service projects, and make Fordham a home for yourself. I’m looking forward to seeing you on campus soon!
