I have completed one year here and it could not have been worse. First off, I am a commuter, the lowest group on Fordham's hierarchy. The administration could not care less about us. There are less than five places that commuters can stay during the day, the most popular of which the the lounge. The student lounge is a moderately sized room in the basement of McGinely center. There are no windows and it floods every single time it rains. By the end of the year, the carpet had been soaked through so many times over that the lounge smelled like a horrible combination of mold and fish. It was so bad that it made it difficult to breathe and people had to stoo coming. Commuters are rarely involved in any on or off campus events because nobody bothers to invite them. Secondly, Fordham's core curriculum is ridiculous. We have over 16 requirements from 2 religions, 2 philosophys, 4 semesters of foreign language, 2 social sciences, 2 histories, 2 english/ writing classes. They have so many requirements so that you are forced to fill up most of your four years with gen eds and if you happen to slip up, you are forced to spend another semester, thus making more money for the university. Fordham is only concerned with money. All the policies and actions of the administration is some back door way to generate more of a profit. It is absolutely not worth it. I felt like coming here gas set myself up for failure which is why i am transferring and if you go here, you will understand why.

Through the core curriculum i discovered my interests and even found my major. Beautiful campus and incredible access to New York City. Professors are generally very good and knowledgeable. Dorms can be a bit small, but housing is guaranteed for four years. Overall, a great school.

It's a campus that resembles Hogwarts and it has a beautiful campus. This school is an academic powerhouse. Grading is difficult and depends largely on major and professor. Grade deflation is a con to my experience at Fordham but the school does produce some intelligent students. I have gone on to a top graduate school since leaving Fordham and this is all thanks in part to Fordham. If you find yourself lucky enough to gain acceptance then take the opportunity. Go Rams!

The on-campus environment is so strict that learning to grow and develop is almost stunted. I visited many school and Fordham is by far the strictest. The residential life staff are everyone's enemy. They seem to enjoy messing with students. Sad actually.
My grades are good so I have had some good opportunities, but average students get nothing. The dean staff seems to look down on students under a 3.5.
The business school has a strange system of offering courses which works if attending class is the only thing you do. Have a part time job, forget it, the classes work against you. Hope to select class times and sequences that work better for your individual learning style, not in Gabelli Business. A couple of nice deans, the rest all seem to be reading from the same script. If you think outside the box, this is not the business school for you. If you want to learn to be a business clone, you must apply.
There are non catholic students, but this school seems to only care about the catholic students. Being catholic seems to impact many of my classes as well. My catholic high school was more open minded.
