| The students, administration, and faculty at Fordham are friendly, supportive, and anything but snobby; this sets Fordham apart from most of its competitors. |
Fordham allows its students to explore the endless possibilities of NYC because of its great location, but it also gives the "typical college experience" of a campus. Not only is Manhattan only 20 minutes away on the subway, but the cultural experience of the Bronx is right outside campus. I must say that I was hesitant about this part of the school at first, but now I love going out into the community and interacting with some of the most interesting individuals. One thing is for sure-- you never get bored at this school. Fordham is truly an eye-opening experience with a superb education!

| Understand that I am writing this review as a first semester Freshman at the Lincoln Center campus who is waiting for acceptance letters to transfer to other schools. I am not referring at all to Rose Hill, only to Lincoln Center. I am a theater major at Fordham, and the department is wonderful and challenging. However, everything else about the school is poor. The academics here are a joke. We've reviewed commas in my english class, and I have a 4.0 without great effort. The classes are actually remedial. The core curriculum allows for little choice, and if you aren't at LC for theater or communications, there is little opportunity to investigate other areas. The social life is great if you like skeezy, hole-in-the-wall bars and getting hit on by old men. There is no on-campus social life because everyone goes out into the city. The dorms are apartments, and they are very isolating. I don't even know my neighbors. This school is 70% female, and it is obvious in the classroom. It is also 60% commuters, which has a great effect on any community that could be built. I am so uncomfortable and out of place at this school. It is like living in nyc and having a job, which happens to be class. It is an adult experience, and not a college one. There are kids here who like it, but prospective students need to be really aware of what an extreme situation it is. A great number of freshman have left already this year because they are unsatisfied (25-30) and more will be gone at mid-year. |

| Fordham is a full-scale university, complete with all the resources that encompass a free marketplace of ideas - yet Fordham's outstanding professors and deans recognize and embrace the individual person... |
The university boasts a breathtaking New England-esque campus, complete with rolling hills and Gothic architecture - yet it sits amidst New York City, center of diversity and virtual capital of the world... In a nutshell, Fordham offers the best of both worlds.
