Fordham University - Comments and Student Experiences|
The students that go here are benign, international is for other schools. Partying and drinking is a major. Go to NYU if you want to drop this kind of money and get options, a known brand name, non Jersey Shore classmates.
Socialization, it is like living on a small island with small minded people, after two weeks the whole silly campus is just that...silly.
The President is Mr All Powerful and Mr Moral Authority, he seems like he will never leave and does not get that tech online education will wash this place away. He seems to feel that there is $30k value per year being around Jesuit greatness, which really means you are paying for their retirement home on campus.
It is also Fort Fordham with security amok, either real or some 1910 like rule, they make a killing housing people whose parents pay a huge freight bill to have little Johnny or Sally stay and get babysat.The business school is a work in progress and the dean is homegrown, meaning she is playing close to home and umbrage to the Jesuits whenever possible. Challenging the status quo is not a cool thing at Fordham, just play along and one gets good grades !
Fordham has a good name, which is why I went there. People expect more of me than I am able to perform because I simply never learned certain skills at all or in-depth enough to use. I have a diploma in the end, but if I were to go back and choose a different university, I would not have chosen Fordham. Do something to benefit yourself: don't come to Fordham. it is an unfortunate waste of $60,000 per year.
