Centennial and Dodransbicentennial Anniversaries —
Fordham’s Two 2016 Celebrations

In addition to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences’ 100th anniversary, 2016 also marks the 175th anniversary—or dodransbicentennial—of Fordham University, established as St. John’s College in 1841. Fordham looks forward to an array of celebrations commemorating these two momentous anniversaries, to be held on both the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses throughout the 2016-17 academic year.
