Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2014

Fordham University charges a lot of money and rides on the tails of its Law Degree program to pretend all of its programs are prestigious. I found the school lacking in most fundamental areas, with a heavy core program that makes it difficult to focus on your major area of study. Everything at the school is immensely expensive right down to the $9 chicken fingers in the cafeteria. I was wholly disappointed with my time there and would not recommend it to anyone. I am currently enrolled in a Masters program and a UX Design Bootcamp to make up for what I felt I was lacking in my undergraduate degree. For the amount of debt I am in, to feel I am lacking in anything is absurd.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2013

Must be a specific type of person to enjoy your time here. If you don't like living in a big city, it's not for you. If you are not familiar with the area, DO NOT CONFUSE THE BRONX WITH MANHATTAN. The "idea" of New York is Manhattan, not the BX. Rose Hill is a more typical "college experience" with college bars filled with frat types. Lincoln Center is similar to NYU- no real campus/filled with artsy folks. (I lived at both) The professors are quality, and the intelligence of the student body is certainly above average, however there is certainly a faction of students that have a little too much to prove. If you are interested in business/marketing, politics, or theology and know you want to stay in New York, Fordham is a great choice. Otherwise I would not recommend it.

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2010

Most of the communications classes were a joke and a lot of the professors had a "dead-inside" sort of feel to them. Almost everyone who lived in the dorm building did not seem to care about academics at all, so it was pretty hard to focus on school work while living there. Definitely not worth the money if you're majoring in a soft liberal arts field.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I really enjoyed my time at Fordham. It's emphasis on core curriculum gave me a wide range of knowledge as well as the classes that focused on my major.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2006

I believe I received a good education from Fordham. It may not be Ivy League, but is academically stimulating and challenging (in a good way). The Lincoln Center campus is diverse and in a great location. The one thing the campus lacked was athletics. I'm not sure if there are tennis courts still on campus, but at the time there was no organized sports clubs, not even tennis.

Degree: Psychology, Other

Wonderful University, beautiful campus, and hit or miss professors ranging from wildly successful & enigmatic educators to Tenured trolls that merely read from the book and fall asleep while lecturing!

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2007

I had an excellent experience at Rose Hill, from campus life to classroom experience, and the value of the degree was highly-regarded and continues to be.

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

Academically, Fordham was a fantastic university. They really emphasized learning a wide variety of subjects that I may not otherwise have chosen to study. The majority of the professors were engaged and driven as were fellow classmates. However, graduating with a BA degree in Communications and Media studies from this school has left me feeling very unprepared for the real world. While I learned a lot of theoretical knowledge, I received very little practical training and feel ill equipped to do any concrete work in the TV or Film industry. I would have loved to take a class in editing, cinematography...any aspect of media training that I could be expected to do on set, however these classes were not offered on the Lincoln Center campus. But if you are a student who truly enjoys learning, lectures and animated group discussions, and are thinking beyond just marketable skills, then Fordham is a great learning experience.

Degree: Political Science and Government, General
Graduation Year: 2013

I had a great time at Fordham University. I really was impressed with the face that many of my teachers were District Attorneys and were able to guide me in my future career. I really loved this school and everything about it.
