Fordham University
University
(/ˈfɔːrdəm/) is a private research university in New York City. Founded by the Catholic Diocese of New York in 1841, it is the oldest Catholic university in the northeastern United States,[5] the third-oldest university in New York,[6] and the only Jesuit university in New York City.[7] Established as St. John's College
College
by John Hughes, then a coadjutor bishop of New York, it was placed in the care of the Society of Jesus shortly thereafter, and has since become a Jesuit-affiliated independent school under a lay board of trustees. The college's first president, John McCloskey, was the first Catholic cardinal in the United States.[8] While governed independently of the Church since 1969, every president of Fordham University
University
since 1846 has been a Jesuit priest, and the curriculum remains influenced by Jesuit educational principles.[9] Fordham enrolls approximately 15,300 students from more than 65 countries,[10] and is composed of ten constituent colleges, four of which are undergraduate and six of which are postgraduate, across three campuses in southern New York State: the Rose
Rose
Hill campus in the Bronx, the Lincoln Center campus in Manhattan's Upper West Side, and the Westchester campus in West Harrison, New York. In addition to these locations, the university maintains a study abroad center in London
London
and field offices in Spain
Spain
and South Africa. The university offers degrees in over 60 disciplines.[11] Fordham's alumni and faculty include numerous U.S. senators and representatives, four cardinals of the Catholic Church, several noteworthy theologians, several U.S. governors and ambassadors, a number of billionaires, two directors of the CIA, Academy Award
Academy Award
and Emmy-winning actors, royalty, a foreign head of state, a White House counsel, a vice chief of staff of the U.S. Army, a U.S. postmaster general, a U.S. attorney general, a U.S. vice-presidential candidate, and a president of the United States. The university's athletic teams, the Rams, include a football team which boasts a Sugar Bowl

John McCloskey, Cardinal- Archbishop of New York
Archbishop of New York
and first president of St. John's College

Fordham was founded as St. John's College
College
in 1841 by the Irish-born coadjutor bishop (later archbishop) of the Diocese of New York, John Hughes.[15] This makes it the third-oldest university in the state of New York,[6] and the first Catholic institution of higher education in the northeastern United States.[5] In 1839, Hughes, then 42 years old, had purchased the 106-acre Rose
Rose
Hill Manor farm in the village of Fordham, New York
Fordham, New York
for $29,750.[16] His intent was to establish St. Joseph's Seminary following the model of Mount Saint Mary's University, of which he was an alumnus.[17] " Rose
Rose
Hill" was the name originally given to the site in 1787 by its owner, Robert Watts, a wealthy New York merchant, in honor of his family's ancestral home in Scotland.[18] In 1840, St. Joseph's Seminary opened at Rose
Rose
Hill.[16] The seminary was paired with St. John's College, which opened at Rose
Rose
Hill with a student body of six on June 24, 1841, the feast day of Saint John the Baptist.[a] The Reverend John McCloskey
John McCloskey
(later archbishop of New York and eventually the first American cardinal) was the school's first president, and the faculty were secular priests and lay instructors. The college presidency went through a succession of four diocesan priests in five years, including the Rev. James Roosevelt Bayley, a distant cousin of Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt
Franklin D. Roosevelt
and a nephew of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.[20] In 1845, the seminary church, Our Lady of Mercy, was built.[21] The same year, Bishop Hughes convinced several Jesuit priests from the St. Mary's Colleges in Kentucky

to staff St. John's.[22]

and St. Joseph's Seminary[23]

St. John's College, 1846

The college received its charter from the New York State
New York State
Legislature in 1846, and the first Jesuits began to arrive about three months later.[24] In 1846 Bishop Hughes sold St. John’s College
College
to the Jesuits for $40,000.[16] Hughes deeded the college over but retained title to the seminary property, which totaled about nine acres. In 1847, Fordham's first school in Manhattan
Manhattan
opened. The school became the independently chartered College
College
of St. Francis Xavier in 1861. It was also in 1847 that the American poet Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe
arrived in the village of Fordham and began a friendship with the college Jesuits that would last throughout his life. In 1849, he published his famed work The Bells. Some traditions credit the college's church bells as the inspiration for this poem.[21] Poe also spent considerable time in the Fordham (then St. John's) Library, and even occasionally stayed overnight.[25] St. John's curriculum consisted of a junior division (i.e. the preparatory school), requiring four years of study in Latin, Greek, grammar, literature, history, geography, mathematics, and religion; and a senior division (i.e. the college), requiring three years study in "poetry" (humanities), rhetoric, and philosophy.[26] Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, famed commander of the all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry American Civil War
American Civil War
regiment, attended the junior division. An Artium Baccalaureus degree was earned for completion of both curricula, and an additional year of philosophy would earn a Magister Artium degree. There was also a "commercial" track similar to a modern business school, offered as an alternative to the Classical curriculum and resulting in a certificate instead of a degree. In 1855, the first student stage production, Henry IV, was presented by the St. John's Dramatic Society.[27] The seminary was closed in 1859.[28] The Civil War was a significant time for the college; among its alumni were four generals, six colonels (including Shaw), and five captains serving in the Union Army; twelve men from Fordham also served in the Confederate Army.[29] Three Jesuits from St. John's served as army chaplains.[29] Lincoln's assassination deeply affected the student body, and even southern students attending the college mourned his loss. As Richard S. Treacy of the class of 1869 later recalled, "The morning we received the news of the death of President Lincoln gloom settled over the entire college, even the southern boys, who before had censored him, now felt that they had lost a valuable friend whose great qualities would be missed in the coming reconstruction."[29]

Lt. Herbert C. Squires with the Fordham cadet corps, April 1886

Fordham's baseball team, which played its first game on September 13, 1859,[30] made several contributions to the history of baseball in the nineteenth century, and played a key role in introducing the game to Cuba
Cuba
and Latin
Latin
America. On November 3, 1859 Fordham played the first college baseball game with modern nine man teams against the now-defunct St. Francis Xavier College in Manhattan.[16] Fordham won the game 33-11.[16] Steve Bellán, the first Cuban and Latin
Latin
American to play major league baseball, learned to play the game while a student at Fordham from 1863-68.[31] After playing for several American major league teams, he returned home and played in the first organized baseball game in Cuba
Cuba
on December 27, 1874.[31] Charles, Henry, and Frederick Zaldo, brothers from Havana
Havana
who founded the Almendares Baseball Club, one of the three original Cuban baseball teams, also learned the game while attending Fordham from 1875-78.[32] An Act of Congress
Act of Congress
created instruction in military science and tactics at the college level. As a result of the act, St. John's brought a cadet corps to campus. From 1885 to 1890, Lt. Herbert C. Squires—a veteran of the 7th U.S. Cavalry—built a cadet battalion to a strength of 200, which would provide the foundation for the modern ROTC
ROTC
unit at Fordham.[33][34] The college built a science building in 1886, lending more legitimacy to science in the curriculum. In addition, a three-year Bachelor of Science degree was created. In 1897, academic regalia for students at commencement was first adopted.[35] 1901–1950: Maturation[edit]

On June 21, 1904, the Regents of the University
University
of the State of New York consented to allow the board of trustees to authorize the opening of a law school and a medical school.[36] St. John's College officially became Fordham University
University
on March 7, 1907.[37] The name Fordham refers to the village of Fordham, in which the original Rose Hill campus is located. The village, in turn, drew its name from its location near a shallow crossing of the Bronx River
Bronx River
("ford by the hamlet"). When Fordham and several other Westchester County
Westchester County
towns were consolidated into the Bronx at the turn of the twentieth century, the village became the borough's Fordham neighborhood. Still in existence today, it is just to the west of the Rose
Rose
Hill campus.[38]

First commencement ceremony at Keating Hall, June 10, 1936[39]

In 1908, Fordham University
University
Press was established.[40] In 1912, the university opened the College
College
of Pharmacy, which offered a three-year program in pharmacy. Not requiring its students to obtain bachelor's degrees until the late 1930s, the college had a mainly Jewish student body, and in recognition of that, the students were exempted from the then-required course in Catholic theology. In September 1912, the Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl Jung
Carl Jung
delivered a series of lectures at Fordham; these lectures marked his historic break with the theories of his colleague, Sigmund Freud.[41] The College
College
of St. Francis Xavier was closed in 1913, and various Fordham colleges were opened at the Woolworth Building

to fill the void. Some divisions of the University

including the law school were later moved to "the Vincent Astor

Building" at 302 Broadway.[42] This commenced an unbroken string of instruction in Manhattan
Manhattan
that became what is now Fordham College
College
at Lincoln Center, where all of Fordham's Manhattan
Manhattan
academic operations are centered today.[43] The university closed its medical school in 1919, citing a lack of endowment and reduced university funds overall due to the First World War.[44] The Gabelli School of Business
Gabelli School of Business
began in 1920 in Manhattan
Manhattan
as the School of Accounting.[45] According to a university catalogue from 1920, the annual cost for tuition, room and board at the college was $600 (equivalent to $7,330 in 2017).[46] In 1944, the School of Professional and Continuing Studies was established, largely bolstered by returning veterans taking advantage of the GI Bill.[47]

The 1940s bore witness to two official presidential visits at Fordham, the first by president Franklin D. Roosevelt
Franklin D. Roosevelt
on October 28, 1940, during his campaign for a third term. The president was cheered by crowds lining the Grand Concourse as he rode to campus, but received a "more measured welcome" from university president Robert Gannon, who was known for his "anti-Roosevelt views."[51] However, in his welcoming remarks, Gannon respectfully referred to Roosevelt as "a man whose imprint is forever fixed on our national history."[51] The second visit was by president Harry S. Truman
Harry S. Truman
on May 11, 1946, on the occasion of the centennial of the granting of Fordham's charter. The president received an honorary degree and delivered a nationally broadcast address on the subject of veterans' education, the dangers of atomic warfare, and the importance of education to civilization. His address concluded with the words, "I am confident that this splendid institution, with its educational system rounded upon Christian principles, will play a full and noble part in the great adventure ahead of us. We can and we must make the atomic age an age of peace for the glory of God and the welfare of mankind."[49] During his visit, Truman also performed the first ringing of the Fordham "victory bell," originally the ship's bell of the Japanese aircraft carrier Junyo, which was presented to the university by Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. The bell currently stands outside the Rose
Rose
Hill Gymnasium and peals after all Ram athletic victories and at the start of Commencement each year.[52] The football program was first established in 1882 and gained national renown in the early 20th century. Fordham football played on some of the largest stages in sports, including games in front of sellout crowds at the Polo Grounds
Polo Grounds
and Yankee Stadium, a Cotton Bowl appearance and a Sugar Bowl

victory, and produced the famed Seven Blocks of Granite, one of whom was the great Vince Lombardi. On September 30, 1939, Fordham participated in the world's first televised football game, defeating Waynesburg College, 34–7.[53][54] The university discontinued the program during World War II, reinstating it in 1946. However, it proved much less successful and too expensive to maintain, and was again discontinued in 1954, though would revive yet again as an NCAA Division III team in 1970 and Division I team in 1989. 1951–2000: Clerical independence[edit] In the late 1950s, the Civil Rights Movement
Civil Rights Movement
was gathering momentum in the U.S. when Fordham students and school officials expressed ambivalence about racial justice.[55] In the late 1960s, Fordham became a center of political activism and countercultural activity. At the Rose
Rose
Hill Campus, the Fordham branch of Students for a Democratic Society organized opposition to the existence of the ROTC
ROTC
and military recruiters.[56] During this period, students routinely organized protests and class boycotts and used psychoactive drugs on campus open spaces.[57]

On February 15, 1958, then senator John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy
received an honorary Doctor of Law
Doctor of Law
degree from university president Laurence J. McGinley and delivered an address at the annual Fordham Law Alumni Association luncheon.[59][58] After humorously stating that he denied any "presidential aspirations—with respect to the Fordham Alumni Association," Kennedy said that, "It is to the eternal credit of Fordham that the teaching of law has here been accompanied by an inculcation of moral values. The graduate of this law school has acquired something more than the tools of his profession—he has learned, both by example and precept, the high obligations of trust which are his as an attorney."[59] In 1961, the Lincoln Center campus opened as part of the Lincoln Square Renewal Project. The School of Law was the first to occupy the new campus, but the academic programs at 302 Broadway were moved to the new location in 1969. At Rose
Rose
Hill, the all-female Thomas More College
College
began instruction in 1964.[60]

In addition, on November 18, 1961, then attorney general Robert F. Kennedy received an honorary degree and delivered an address at the dedication of the new Fordham Law School

building in Lincoln Center, paying tribute to "Fordham ideals, traditions and teachers."[61] Kennedy said that he was privileged, as attorney general, to be "the largest single employer of Fordham law graduates in North America," and also remarked that, "While the world we know is preoccupied by what may lie before it, when threats could pervade our every thought and fears our every action, it is reassuring to see buildings and programs like these rise each day to greet the future. It is a mark of courage and resolution."[61] On November 2, 1964, during his campaign for the U.S. Senate, Robert F. Kennedy
Robert F. Kennedy
made another visit to Fordham and gave an address at the Rose
Rose
Hill gymnasium that attracted a crowd of 2,800.[62][63] In response to internal demands for a more "liberalized" curriculum, the university created Bensalem College
College
in 1967. An experimental college with no set requirements and no grades, it was studied by a wide array of educators and reported on by such large-circulation publications of the day as Look, Esquire and the Saturday Review. The school closed in 1974.[64]

In 1969, students organized a sit-in on the main road leading to Rose Hill in response to an announcement that President Richard Nixon
President Richard Nixon
would be speaking on campus. As a result of the sit-in, Nixon was forced to cancel his plans to speak.[66] A year later, students stormed the main administration building, occupying it for several weeks, and set fire to the Rose
Rose
Hill faculty lounge.[57] It was during this period of activism that the university's African and African American Studies Department, one of the first black studies departments in the nation, as well as the paper, the leftist student newspaper on campus, were founded.[42] In 1969, the board of trustees was reorganized to include a majority of nonclerical members, which officially made the university an independent institution.[67] While the Jesuit order thereby lost full control of Fordham, the board of trustees continues to maintain the institution as a "Jesuit, Catholic university."[1] The College

closed in 1972 due to declining enrollment. Fordham College at Rose

Hill became coeducational in 1974 when it merged with Thomas More College.[68] Fordham Preparatory School

is a four-year, all-male college preparatory school that was once integrated with the university and still shares its 1841 founding. Fordham Prep became legally independent in 1972 when it moved to its own facilities on the northwest corner of the Rose
Rose
Hill campus. The school continues to retain many connections with the university.[69] In 1993, a twenty-story residence hall for 850 students was added to the Lincoln Center campus. At this center "The Liberal Arts College" for undergraduates opened in 1968, later changing its name to "The College
College
at Lincoln Center" and then in 1996 to "Fordham College
College
at Lincoln Center."[70] 2001–present: Post-millennium[edit]

Marymount College
College
was an independent women's college that was founded in 1907 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary. The school was consolidated into Fordham in July 2002. Marymount had been steeped in financial hardship since the 1970s. Located 25 miles (40 km) north of Manhattan
Manhattan
in Tarrytown, New York, the college remained open, and its campus received a branch of the School of Professional and Continuing Studies as well as extensions of the graduate schools for education, social service, and business administration. In 2005, Fordham announced that its Marymount College
College
campus would be phased out; Marymount awarded degrees to its final undergraduate class in May 2007.[42] University
University
administrators indicated the campus would remain open for Fordham graduate programs in several disciplines. In the autumn of 2007, the university announced its intention to seek buyers for the Marymount campus. Administrators stated the expenses required to support the programs at the campus far exceeded the demand. University
University
officials estimated the revenue gained from the proposed sale would not be greater than the expenses incurred maintaining and improving the campus since the merger with Marymount. President McShane stated the university's decision was nonetheless a "painful" one. Fordham then indicated its intention to move the remaining programs from the Marymount campus to a new location in Harrison, New York, by the autumn of 2008. On February 17, 2008, the university announced the sale of the campus for $27 million to EF Schools, a chain of private language-instruction schools.[71] In 2014, the university successfully completed a five-year, $500 million campaign; the project surpassed expectations by raising more than $540 million.[72] The university went on to renovate and expand its Lincoln Center campus, opening in 2014 its renovated Law School, as well as an additional undergraduate dormitory, McKeon Hall.[73] The former law school building was converted to expand Quinn Library and house the Gabelli School of Business.[74] Long-term plans include a new library building and buildings for the graduate schools of Social Service and of Education.[75] Academics[edit]

is composed of four undergraduate and six graduate schools,[77] and its academic ethos is heavily drawn from its Jesuit origins.[78] The university promotes the Jesuit principles of cura personalis, which fosters a faculty and administrative respect for the individual student and all of his or her gifts and abilities; magis, which encourages students to challenge themselves and strive for excellence in their lives; and homines pro aliis, which intends to inspire service, a universal charity, among members of the Fordham community.[1][b] Through its International and Study Abroad Programs (ISAP) Office, Fordham provides its students with over 130 study abroad opportunities. The programs range in duration from six weeks to a full academic year and vary in focus from cultural and language immersion to internship and service learning. Some of the programs are organized by Fordham itself, such as those in London, United Kingdom; Granada, Spain; and Pretoria, South Africa; while others are operated by partner institutions like Georgetown University, the University
University
of Oxford, and the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE).[80] In addition to the ISAP programs, the university's constituent schools offer a range of study abroad programs that cater to their specific areas of study.[81] Fordham has produced 126 Fulbright

scholars since 2003.[3] Admissions[edit]

According to the U.S. News and World Report, Fordham is considered a "more selective university",[86] while a 2013 Barron's survey published in The New York Times
The New York Times
classed the university as "highly competitive".[87] In its 2018 edition, admission to Fordham's undergraduate schools received a reclassification by Barron's to "Most Competitive", after being "Highly Competitive+" in its 2017 edition, and reported 74% of enrolled freshmen as ranking in the top 20% of their high school class. In 2016, the university accepted approximately 43% of all applicants across both its undergraduate and graduate programs.[88] For the undergraduate class of 2019, Fordham accepted 20,366 of the 42,811 applicants (47.6%) and enrolled 2,211.[84] The middle 50% range of SAT scores for enrolled freshmen was 580–670 for critical reading, 590–680 for math, and 590–680 for writing, while the ACT Composite middle 50% range was 27–31.[84] The average high school GPA of incoming freshmen was 3.64.[84] In 2016, the university enrolled approximately 2,199 new undergraduate students, and 2,168 new graduate students.[89] Undergraduate curriculum[edit]

All undergraduates pursuing bachelor's degrees at Fordham are required to complete the Core Curriculum, a distribution of 17 courses in nine disciplines: English, mathematical/computational reasoning, social science, philosophy and ethics, history, fine arts, religious studies, natural science, and modern or Classical languages. Based on the curriculum established by the Society of Jesus
Society of Jesus
in the sixteenth century, the Core is shared by Jesuit schools all over the world and emphasizes the liberal arts as a basis of education.[79][90] Undergraduate students are expected to fulfill most of the core requirements prior to the completion of their sophomore year; a wide variety of courses can be applied to this endeavor.[91] Upon the completion of the Core Curriculum, students choose from approximately 50 major courses of study, in which they will receive their degree.[3] One option is the personalized interdisciplinary major, which allows students to create their own course of study across various disciplines.[92] School of Professional and Continuing Studies also awards bachelor's degrees; the Gabelli School of Business
Gabelli School of Business
offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees. In addition to the bachelor's degrees offered to undergraduates, the university also offers specialized academic programs, including: pre-medical and health professions;[93] pre-professional programs in architecture, law, and criminal justice;[94][95] a 3-2 engineering program, in conjunction with Columbia and Case Western Reserve Universities;[96] a five-year teacher certification program;[97] an Applied Public Accountancy (CPA certification) program;[98] a BFA program in dance, in conjunction with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater;[99] as well as cross-registration opportunities with the Juilliard School

Columbus Circle
to be redeveloped under Title One of the Federal Housing Law. ... If this idea appeals to you I will ask Mr. Lebwohl to see you and explain it in greater detail."[162] In March 1958, Mayor Robert Wagner signed the deeds transferring the Lincoln Center campus to Fordham University.[163] The Lincoln Center campus is home to Fordham College
College
at Lincoln Center and to a division of the School of Professional and Continuing Studies, as well as the School of Law, the Graduate Schools of Education and Social Service, and the Fordham School of Business. The 8-acre (32,000 m2) campus occupies the area from West 60th Street to West 62nd Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues, placing it in the cultural heart of Manhattan.[3]

The university supports 21 men's and women's varsity athletic teams, as well as various club and intramural sports.[176] The Fordham colors are maroon and white and its mascot is the ram. In most varsity sports, the Rams compete in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and are a member of the Atlantic 10 Conference. The football team, however, plays in NCAA Division I

FCS and is an associate member of the Patriot League, the most academically selective NCAA conference after the Ivy League.[3][177] The men's water polo team plays in the East Mid-Atlantic Water Polo conference. The Ram's football team ended the 1929 season as title holders according to college football's fictitious national championship,[178] boasts two bowl game appearances (1941 and 1942), two Patriot League championships (2002 and 2007) and corresponding NCAA Division I Football Championship appearances. It is best known, however, for the "Seven Blocks of Granite," a name given to the team's 1928 and 1936 offensive lines. The 1936 team was coached by "Sleepy" Jim Crowley, one of the University

and among the oldest college theater groups in the United States, was founded in 1855 as the Saint John's Dramatic Society.[192] The Mimes put on two musicals, a drama, and a comedy each year – all non-student-written shows – as well as workshops designed to help students at Fordham learn about theater. The club receives from the school a budget which allows the hiring of professional directors, music directors, and choreographers but the shows are student produced, with all elements of technical design run by the club's executive board.[193] In 1905, with the construction of Collins Hall, Fordham University became the first place on the East Coast of the United States
United States
to have a theater in the round. The Penthouse Theatre, on the fourth floor of Collins Hall, served both for debuts of professional shows and home for theater groups like the Mimes and Mummers. The Penthouse Theatre was turned into office space in 1966.[192] In 1991, the Alumni House, constructed in 1842 by William Rodrigue, was turned into Rodrigues Coffee House. Rodrigues, more commonly referred to as "rods" is an entirely student run coffee house and event space. Notable bands such as Matt and Kim, and Japanese Breakfast have performed at rods.

including the Rainbow Room, the Russian Tea Room, and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.[216] Under the Tent: The "Under the Tent" Dance is a smart casual event held the weekend before final exams. Sponsored by the university's Residence Halls Association, it takes place underneath a tent on Martyrs' Lawn, Fordham's second-largest quadrangle, and has a different theme each year. The dance is part of the Spring Weekend Festival, which also includes two concerts, a barbecue, a race around the Rose
Rose
Hill campus, and a comedy show.[217] The dance was previously held at the Lincoln Center campus as well, but was replaced in 2015 by an end-of-the-year event called "The Bash". The Festival of Lessons and Carols: The Fordham University
University
Concert Choir presents a series of Nine Lessons and Carols
Nine Lessons and Carols
every year during the Christmas season. An afternoon concert is performed at the University
University
Church on the Rose
Rose
Hill campus, and an evening concert is performed at the Church of Saint Paul the Apostle adjacent to the Lincoln Center campus.[218] Midnight Breakfast: Each semester, the official beginning of the final exam period is marked by a "midnight breakfast," in which Fordham administration and professors cook students their favorite breakfast items so as to prepare them for the long night of studying ahead of them.[219] The name comes from "burning the midnight oil" with studies, not from the time of the breakfast. The Liberty Cup: The Liberty Cup

Rose
Hill

Maroon: The university's official color used to be magenta, one which was shared by Harvard University. Since it was confusing for the two schools to be wearing the same color during athletic competitions, the matter of which school could lay claim to magenta was to be settled through a series of baseball games. Fordham won the games, but Harvard reneged on its promise. Both schools continued to use the color until 1874, when the Fordham student government unanimously agreed to change to maroon. Maroon
Maroon
was chosen because it was not widely used at the time. Sometime later, Harvard stopped using magenta in favor of crimson.[52] The Ram: The ram became the university's mascot as a result of a slightly vulgar cheer Fordham fans sang during an 1893 football game against the United States Military Academy
United States Military Academy
The fans began cheering, "One-damn, two-damn, three-damn, Fordham!" which was an instant hit. Later, "damn" was sanitized to "ram" so the song would conform to the university's image.[223] The Victory Bell: Presented to Fordham by Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz ('44) of the US Navy, the Victory Bell was the ship's bell of the Japanese aircraft carrier Junyo. First rung on campus by President Harry S. Truman
Harry S. Truman
on May 11, 1946, it currently stands in front of the Rose Hill Gymnasium

and peals following all Ram athletic victories and at the start of Commencement each year.[52]

Fordham's fight song, "Fordham Ram" by J. Ignatius Coveney[223]

The Great Seal: The Great Seal of Fordham University
University
was designed to acknowledge the presence of the Society of Jesus
Society of Jesus
on campus, hence the order's coat of arms in the seal's center. The coat of arms bears the Greek letters of the lapidary form of Jesus Christ (IHS), with the Cross resting on the center of the H and the three nails of the Crucifixion beneath the epigraph. These figures, dressed in gold, lay in a field framed in maroon, the color of the university, with silver fleur-de-lis at the edge. The fleur-de-lis symbolize the French Jesuits who arrived at Fordham in 1846. Immediately above the central shield rests the laurel crown, enclosing the university's pedagogical disciplines: arts, science, philosophy, medicine, and law. Below the shield is a blue scroll with the university's motto, Sapientia et Doctrina. The scroll rests on a gold field emblematic of learning (doctrina) and is surrounded by the fiery tongues of the Holy Spirit, a symbol of wisdom (sapientia). In a circular maroon field embroidered with beads is Fordham's official title, Universitas Fordhamensis; at the field's lower edge is the date of the university's founding, 1841. Finally, surrounding the entire seal is a heraldic belt, which is employed as a stylistic decoration. The University
University
of Oxford, the only other tertiary institution in the world that uses a belt in its seal, however, maintains that without the belt, the seal is not official.[52] The mace: The mace of Fordham is traditionally carried at Commencement by the president of the Faculty Senate, who serves as the grand marshal of the main academic procession. The device, four feet in length, bears a regal crown at the summit to denote the sole power of the State of New York
State of New York
to grant academic degrees in its territory. Above the crown is a cross composed of four windmill sails, which signify the Catholic faith and the Dutch founders of New York City, respectively. The center of the cross displays a heraldic rose, which symbolizes Rose
Rose
Hill. Immediately beneath the crown is a support, on which the university's seal is emblazoned. The upper node of the mace's staff is decorated with three heraldic roses, the Fordham seal, a ram's head, and a silhouette of the Lincoln Center campus. The titles of the university's constituent colleges are engraved above the node, and the names of the school's presidents from 1841 to 1966 are inscribed below it. The mace was a gift to the university from the Fordham University
University
Alumni Federation.[52] The Terrace of the Presidents: Robert Gannon, president of Fordham from 1936 to 1949, initiated the custom of engraving the granite steps leading up to Keating Hall
Keating Hall
with the names of heads of state who visit the university. Among the names engraved are George Washington, who visited the Rose
Rose
Hill Manor before it was succeeded by St. John's College
College
in 1841; Franklin Delano Roosevelt; Harry S. Truman; Richard Nixon; and the names of various other heads of state from around the world.[52] School songs: Fordham's official school song is "Alma Mater Fordham," and its fight song is "Fordham Ram" by J. Ignatius Coveney.[223] In December 2013 the lyrics to "Fordham Ram" were changed from "Hail Men of Fordham, hail" to "Hail Rams of Fordham, hail" to be inclusive of the school's female majority.[224] "The Marching Song" is typically played during parades and after athletic games, especially after a Ram victory.[225]

^ According to Christian tradition, in the Gregorian calendar, June 24 is observed as the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist, and it is mentioned in the 1920 General Catalogue published by the university that the college's opening deliberately coincided with the feast day.[19] ^ Fordham has been governed by a lay board of trustees since 1969, when it ceased being directly governed by the Society of Jesus.[67] However, the university maintains its official Jesuit, Catholic affiliation and a curriculum in accordance with Jesuit educational principles, specifically cura personalis, and each of its presidents since 1846 have been Jesuit priests. The university's Jesuit academic ethos privileges the liberal arts as a basis of education.[79] ^ Fordham was included in the third edition of the Hidden Ivies published in 2016.[137] ^ Fordham University
University
was placed at 94th in the Times Higher Education World University
