The ABCs Of Fordham University

Reflecting on my in-person college experience while coronavirus has forced it to be online.

The ABCs Of Fordham University

Are you a current Fordham student, prospective Fordham student, or simply curious about life around Fordham's two campuses? Then here are the ABCs of Fordham University. Get to know your way around.

A. Arthur Ave

A Fordham staple is Arthur Avenue, also known as the real Little Italy. Arthur Avenue entails lots of Italian restaurants, Delis, and other small businesses such as shops and boutiques. There is great food, great company, and lots of friendly faces to be found here.

B. Barnyard BBQ

The Barnyard BBQ is a Fordham nightlife spot owned and run by Fordham students' beloved Simon.

C. CAB Bingo

Fordham's Campus Activities Board, more commonly referred to as CAB, hosts monthly bingo on campus with amazing prizes. This is one of my favorite things to do on campus, and it really makes you feel like part of a family to see the auditorium fill up with pajama-clad students who simply... want to play bingo.

D. Dealy Hall

Dealy Hall stands at the center of Fordham's Rose Hill campus, and it is mostly noteworthy because of the Starbucks inside. But, you will likely have a lot of classes in here, too.

E. Eddie's

Edward's Parade is Fordham's green space, and it is nicknamed Eddie's. When Spring comes around, Eddie's fills with students tanning, playing Spike Ball, or just taking an hour or so to relax between classes.

F. Formals

One of my favorite parts of being a student at Fordham is the formals that are hosted by sports teams and clubs. Most often, formals are held at Michaelangelo's on Arthur Ave, and the night entails pizza and an open bar.

G. Global Outreach (GO) Trips

Fordham's Global Outreach trips allow students an opportunity to explore other cultures as well as the political, societal, or economic hardships faced there. This is an amazing opportunity to take part in something bigger than ourselves, and I have heard incredible things from friends of mine who have gotten involved.

H. Howl

Howl at the Moon, or Howl, is another nightlife staple at the Rose Hill campus. This is moreso where upperclassmen tend to congregate.


Fordham requires students to take certain, designated core classes in order to ensure that our learning experience crosses borders and is well-rounded. While these can be tedious, they allow us to explore subjects outside of our regular course of learning.

K. Keating Hall

L. Lincoln Center

M. Martyr's Lawn

N. New York Botanical Gardens

O. O'Hare Hall

P. Pugsleys

Q. Queen's Court

R. Rooftops

S. Spring Weekend

T. The Empire Hotel

U. Urban Plunge

V. Volunteer Work

W. Walsh Gate

X. XC 

Y. Yankee Stadium

Z. Zoo

So, there you have it. These are the ABCs of Fordham, and we are so lucky to be able to call New York our second home.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
