Rose Hill Integrated Learning Community: Manresa Program

Integrated Learning Community

Loyola Hall is home to approximately 125 first-year Fordham College at Rose Hill and Gabelli School of Business students in the Manresa Scholars Program. Loyola Hall houses classrooms that are equipped with SMART technology, a kitchen, study nooks, event space, and the St. Ignatius Loyola Chapel.

Manresa students are enrolled in a course taught by one of Fordham's most talented professor-scholars. Each professor also serves as the academic advisor and intellectual mentor to each student.

The Residence Hall Staff in Loyola Hall consists of one full-time resident director, four resident assistants, four academic live-in tutors, and one Jesuit priest-in-residence. This staff complements the academic experience by expanding each resident’s intellectual, spiritual, and social growth within the residential setting through a variety of regular and enriching programs.
