Events and Activities

School Spirit

One of the best aspects of a great college experience is a strong sense of community, plenty of school spirit, and tradition. During Fordham's 175 years in existence, the University has passed down many traditions that have built a community that lasts lifetimes. Some of these traditions include:

  • President's Ball
  • Family Weekend
  • Winter Ball
  • Under the Tent
  • The Festival of Lessons and Carols
  • Midnight Breakfast
  • Senior Week
  • Encaenia
  • Jubilee

Fordham also hosts an extraordinary variety of lectures, performances, exhibitions, concerts, service outings, film screenings, spiritual gatherings, and more - many of which are student planned and run.

So, mark your calendars for fun, friends, and fulfillment. Fordham has something for everyone.
