High school junior or not yet admitted?

If you're a junior in high school or if you haven't yet received an offer of admission and can't wait to join us, here's what we recommend:

  • Good: Virtual Tour or an on-demand event, on your own time
  • Better: Guided Virtual Tour, led by our ambassadors
  • Even Better: Virtual Information Session or Virtual Hello, hosted by an admission counselor
  • Best: Live Virtual Walking Tour, broadcast live from our campuses.
  • Ultimate: Connecting with us at multiple events. 

Interested in visiting our campuses?

At some point in the future, we’ll invite you to visit our campuses in person. We certainly understand how impactful an on-campus visit can be. (And, of course, we love showing off our beautiful campuses!) We’re currently talking about ways to accommodate guests while keeping our campuses and Fordham community members healthy. Once we’ve made arrangements that fit current public health guidance, we’ll let you know. Not already getting emails from us? Make sure you’re on our mailing list.

Still not sure when to visit virtually?

Then you should call 718-817-4000 and ask to talk with an admission counselor. We'll be happy to talk you through all your options.

Live Virtual Walking Tours

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) campus.
  • They'll show you their favorite places on and around campus, going inside and around featured buildings.
  • Whatever the weather or daylight, 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.

Thursday, March 4 (Lincoln Center only, 4 p.m.)
Sunday, March 21 (5 p.m.)
Wednesday, April 7 (6 p.m.)

Virtual Ram Sessions (designed for admitted students)

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 be 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 topics here and on our Virtual Events calendar.

Virtual Spring Preview (designed for admitted students)

This online event on April 17 features live virtual walking tours—a novel way to see both of our campuses.

  • Log in and join us any time between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. ET on April 17.
