“What I like about Fordham is that youMay 23 2012Business - Management and Administration
As to not seem out of touch with some of the realities of the institution, I will say that there are some down sides to Fordham, esp. the Bronx campus, which stem from its surroundings. I served in the US Army, deployed and lead a team in Iraq, this being said, I would never live in the Bronx. The entirety of the area is sub-poverty and high crime (..which for some reason seems to be a source of pride for the locals..). If you combine this with the usual attendee at Fordham, i.e. upper middle class individuals, you will find that there is a high likelihood for robberies and the likes. That being said, be smart, think about your actions and act accordingly, and you will be ok. Another point, If you feel college is more about partying than education, although NYC is less than 20mins south, you will be sad you hear that the "nightlife" just outside of the campus is not thrilling. That being said however, if this is a disqualifying factor for you regarding your undergrad institution choice, please do the nation a favor and just work at McDonalds. We have enough under educated moralistically challenged individuals in high places now a day, and do not need any more. Also, there is a big drive for minority acceptance, so I have seen some rather questionable individuals finding their way into some of the classes I have taken, but these individuals are usually weeded out by the curriculum. Unfortunately this is the case with many institutions throughout the US and must be taken in stride, the system does even itself out. I loved Fordham, I have nothing but great things to say about my time as a Ram (..and I will always be one!) and I would do it all over if I had to. The reputation is already well known throughout the Tri-State area, gaining momentum nationally; the school will be a Top10 for sure, within the next decade. In closing, good luck to you in your search, wherever you end up, but be assured, Fordham is a great choice!
