Check out the ABCs of Fordham University at Rose Hill:

1. A is for Arthur Avenue

If you want to know where Fordham students spend all their money, look no further than the restaurants on Arthur Avenue.

2. B is for The Bronx

The home of the Rams.

3. C is for cat

taken by me

These babies have become famous for roaming around campus and making Fordham their home.

4. D is for the D-train

Students know the walk to the subway way too well.

5. E is for Eddie’s Parade

taken by me

Everybody knows this is the campus hotspot during warm days.

6. F is for family

It sounds corny, but we really are one big family (RAMily) here at Fordham.

7. G is for Gabelli

taken by me

Business attire and Airpods sold separately.

8. H is for home

Again, I know this sounds corny, but it's true that Fordham has become my second home.

9. I is for intelligent (and inspiring!)

Our credentials speak for themselves.

10. J is for Jesuit

We're New York's first Jesuit university.

11. K is for Keating

taken by me

Quite possibly the most beautiful building on the entire Rose Hill campus (sorry, Duane Library!).

12. L is for learn

There's always something new to discover.

13. M is for McShane

Our president is THE face of Fordham.

14. N is for New York

Fordham is our school, New York is our campus.

15. O is for opportunity

I honestly feel so lucky to have all the opportunities I'm given here at this school.

16. P is for Pugsley’s

This is--hands down--every Fordham student's favorite pizza place.

17. Q is for Queen’s Court

taken by me

This dorm will always have a special place in my heart. Plus, rumor has it Lana Del Rey lived here!

18. R is for Rams

taken by me

Once a Fordham Ram, always a Fordham Ram!

19. S is for squirrel

These small babies will steal your heart… and your french fries from Urban Kitchen.

20. T is for team

taken by me

Whether it's a sports team (shoutout to the hockey boys!), acapella group, dance squad, or any other club, you'll always find yourself part of a team.

21. U is for unity

Need I say more?

22. V is for volunteer

The Bronx is Blooming

It's so easy for students to find volunteer opportunities here at Rose Hill.

23. W is for women

Fordham is definitely a place for women to flourish.

24. X is for X-tra special

Did you know Edgar Allen Poe's famous poem "The Bells" refers to the bells of Keating Hall?

25. Y is for Yankees

Yankee Stadium is only a fifteen-minute subway ride from campus. Batter up!

26. Z is for zoo

taken by me

I doubt you'll find a Fordham student who hasn't taken a trip to the Bronx Zoo on one of their days off.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
