"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"I loved Fordham! The professors, for the most part, were very educated and inspirational. There were lots of time slots and options for classes and most of the lectures were educational. There was a great variety of students and lots of options at the campus."

"Fordham University was my first choice when applying to schools. Though I sometimes think I should have chosen another NYC school, I believe that Fordham is where I was meant to be. That being said, it was frustrating at times to be in certain classes, whether because of complacent students or distracted professors. Amongst the faculty, there are a few stars, many of whom I remain in contact with today. As with any university, what you put in is what you'll get out. If you show professors that you truly care and are eager to learn, they will be there to help in any way they can."

"I'd say Fordham University is a great private school education. Small classes and great teachers. The Price tag is the only issue. If you have the money and want a great education, small but beautiful campus and don't mind the Jesuits walking around (Who are a lot cooler than you think, actually), Fordham is a great place to go. If you have any financial need at all, you should probably look elsewhere. They give little to no aid to the students most in need, few athletic scholarships, and have outrageous room and board costs. Also student resources are hard to come by unless you look into them yourself."
