The Class of 2020 is one of the most geographically diverse in our history. More than 20 students are enrolled from each of the following states: California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.

This year's freshman class includes 192 international students from countries as far as Brazil, Canada, China, France, Malaysia, Mongolia, and more.

But we are still committed to the city we call home. 18% of the class is from NYC's five boroughs.

We are also among the top 20 Fulbright producers in the country. Since 2003, 119 Fordham students were awarded Fulbright scholarships.
