Admitted Student Events

"I'm going to Fordham!"

Hug from the Fordham mascot.

Whether you've officially declared your college choice or you're still trying to decide which place is right for you, our team will do everything we can to get you the information you need. The college search process is rarely easy and current events are making it even more challenging.

At this time, all on-campus events have been suspended. We'll notify you as soon as we're able to welcome visitors and resume our in-person visit program.

While we acknowledge that nothing can replicate the feeling of being on our campuses, we've created a comprehensive virtual visit program. Some events are short welcomes. Some are focused on certain topics or colleges. At all of them, you can get your questions answered and interact with members of our community. See your options below. 

To register now, go to our Virtual Events calendar.

Guided Virtual Tours

During our Guided Virtual Tour, you'll watch our campus come to life as you hear our students share the undergraduate experience and walk you through our online virtual tour.

While you'll be welcomed by an admission counselor, these events are hosted by our current students. They'll talk about student life, share their favorite Fordham spots, and tell some of the stories that make Fordham more than just a place. You'll have the opportunity to chat with our students and have your questions answered.

Guided Virtual Tours are offered twice a week from February 8 through April 29, at 3 p.m. (Mondays) and 4 p.m. (Thursdays).

Virtual Admitted Student Presentations

During an hour-long Virtual Admitted Student Presentation, you'll get multiple answers to the important question, "Why Fordham?" You'll also learn about the next steps for financial aid and enrolling at Fordham. During the event, there will be a discussion led by an admission counselor, and you can chat with other admitted students and current Fordham students.

If you prefer a more general presentation—with a full overview of Fordham—we recommend registering for a Virtual Information Session with Q&A instead.

Presentations are offered twice a week at 4 p.m. (Mondays) and 12 p.m. (Thursdays) between February 8 and April 29. Register now by going to our Virtual Events calendar.

 

Virtual Welcome

Fordham's Virtual Welcome offers a chance for us to officially welcome admitted students to our community at the Jesuit University of New York. These intimate (and quick!) 30-minute sessions are a great way to learn about what Fordham can offer you.

Hosted by an admission counselor, the Virtual Welcome is an opportunity for you to get a few answers to the question, "Why should I choose Fordham?" Hosted through Zoom, it's also an opportunity to see the faces of your fellow admitted students.

We know you're busy, so we created the Virtual Welcome to be our shortest program. We believe these 30 minutes will allow you to see if Fordham's the place for you. Who knows, you might see your future classmate, roommate, or teammate in your session!

Virtual Welcomes are offered twice a week at 6:30 p.m. (Tuesdays) and 4 p.m. (Wednesdays) from February 2 through March 9; then four times a week at 6:30 p.m. (Tuesdays and Thursdays), 4 p.m. (Wednesdays), and 12 p.m. (Fridays) from March 16 through April 30.

Live Virtual Walking Tour

Live from New York, it's Fordham's Virtual Walking Tour—a special way to see our campus that we're only offering four times this spring.

  • Our ambassadors will join us on Zoom from Fordham's Rose Hill (Bronx) or Lincoln Center (Manhattan) campuses.
  • They'll show you their favorite places on and around campus, going inside and around featured buildings.
  • Whatever the weather, you'll see what's happening live.
  • Some current Fordham students will join us "in studio" to provide additional stories, descriptions, and experiences.
  • After the tour, if we have any time, we'll answer your questions about life on campus.

To register, go to our Virtual Events calendar and choose the campus you'd like to see.

This event will be offered on: 

Thursday, March 4 (4 p.m.)
Sunday, March 21 (5 p.m.)
Wednesday, April 7 (6 p.m.)
Saturday, April 17 (11 a.m. and 1:15 p.m., as part of Virtual Spring Preview)

Virtual Ram Sessions

During a Virtual Ram Session, you can dig deeper into a particular topic. At each hour-long event, Fordham community members (such as admission counselors, current students, faculty, deans, and other staff) will welcome you and other students and provide the latest news from Fordham. Then, they'll introduce a 10-minute recorded presentation, which is designed to give you a quick review of what it means to attend the Jesuit University of New York. After that, our team will give a live presentation on the event's focused topic.

Throughout the presentations, and for a designated time at the conclusion of the presentations, you'll have the opportunity to chat with members of our team. You'll be able to see other students' questions and have your questions answered.

Once we finalize our plans, we'll post the list of specific topics here and on our Virtual Events calendar.

Virtual Admitted Student Days

Join us for a Virtual Admitted Student Day, an interactive hour featuring panels for admitted students and for parents, followed by a day's worth of on-demand presentations and videos. Learn more and register.

The content is the same for all Virtual Admitted Student Days, for all the undergraduate colleges on both our campuses. However, each event is offered on a different day of the week, so select the virtual event that works best for you.
