kc is right, the parties at Syracuse will definitely be better than Fordham. Fordham's party scene isn't that great, there's two types of parties: extremely crowded unable-to-move house parties with bad keg beer or almost empty house parties with bad keg beer. I stick to the bars, its really not worth it.
Honestly, if you have a 3.7 at Syracuse I'd stay there...I know practically no one with a 3.7 at Fordham.
Because Fordham is located in NYC, you will have a plethora of opportunities to compliment your business studies. About 70% of of students at Fordham complete an internship by the end of their senior year.
The business school also does a great job of organizing career opportunities both on and off campus. There are always recruiters from companies visting the Rose Hill campus for career fairs, interviews, etc. Also, the business school organizes many trips into the city to speak with Fordham alums at their companies, such as Tiffany & Co., Burberry, and Ogilvy and Mather. As a Fordham business student, you will experience the benefits of a top notch school living in the heart of career opportunities.
The ram van drivers definitely don't carry guns, but it's safe, because leaving Lincoln Center, the neighborhood is very safe, and the drop-off at RH is in the middle of campus, so, again, very safe. So I wouldn't say it's hard at all to come into the city at night or for weekends.
No, it's not true that students get mugged once a week. You just have to use your common sense, and not go wandering out alone on Fordham Rd. at 4:00 in the morning. Security issues at LC are even rarer.
Ok, two things. NO Fordham students are NOT targeted for "mugging" and you will be FINE as long as you use common sense.
Secondly..have fun trying to maintain a 3.7 GPA @ Fordham if you are worried about partying. This is FORDHAM UNIVERSITY...not community college. Believe me, they make you work HARD for even a B grade mark. You will be lucky if you can hang on with a 3.0. This is NOT Syracuse...this is Fordham..just keep that in mind.
But if you are still interested, there are about a million and one parties that you can go to within a few blocks of your campus. It's NYC...of course..there are TONS of parties. You can party 24/7 365 if you like .
Rose Hill campus is right next to Arthur Ave. - the safest urban neighborhood in the world . . .fogetaboudit! You just have to know where you are. also, if you and your buddies can't find a party in NYC, good luck in the business world.
