Considering the Gabelli School for your bachelor’s degree?
Two weeks ago, Fordham played host to thousands of prospective high school students from all over the country who are finalizing their short list of colleges.
The event was Fall Open House. The locations were the Lincoln Center and Rose Hill campuses. Here’s the scoop on why it was worthwhile.
High school students and families …
- Toured the campuses and their residence halls
- Listened to inside information from faculty and deans
- Got a firsthand perspective from student panelists
- Met with admissions and financial-aid representatives
The open house also offered a close-up look at the new 140 West 62nd Street building, home not only to the Gabelli School of Business, but also the Fordham-wide Quinn Library and a whole collection of Manhattan-based student resources.
For students interested in attending the Gabelli School, there are separate open house events specifically focused on business education.
At these events, participants heard Dean Donna Rapaccioli outline the bachelor of science program, listened to current Rams share their own stories about classes and internships, and interacted with Gabelli School students, professors, and administrators on a more personal level.
Check out some photos from the open house below, and don’t worry if you missed this one. There are other visiting days throughout the school year. See the undergraduate admissions “Visit” webpage for more information.
