On the whole, I had an absolutely fantastic freshman year at Fordham. I lived in Hughes Hall which is looked down upon in some respects because the facilities are not as good as the other freshman dorms of North and South, but the people I met there the first day became a great group of friends I carried with me throughout the entire year. Part of this I think was also achieved by the Orientation Fordham provided. Coming from the Northeast myself, it was not much of an adjustment overall since most are from the Northeast/Midatlantic but I met a wide variety of people who really showed me alot about life outside my own little bubble. It gave me some interesting perspective for sure.
Academically, it is relatively tough. Especially tough if you don't take it too seriously. Balancing your social life with studies is a neccessity if you are looking to actually excel at Fordham academically.
I feel the people who attend Fordham are what really make the school... Again, the individuals I have met have given a much better perspective on the world around me and the different ways many people live. Everyone is in it together and, for the most part, I feel like the student body is pretty cohesive.
