FORDHAM COLLEGE AT ROSE HILL At Fordham College at Rose Hill, we prepare students to break barriers, exceed themselves and serve the cause of the human family throughout their lives of personal and professional achievement. We invite you to join our $25 million capital campaign, formally launched on May 12. Your gift will help our students become world-class scientists, researchers, scholars and leaders who are guided by the Jesuit ideals that have been taught at Rose Hill since 1841. Science Education To accommodate surging interest in the sciences and help our students prepare for distinguished careers in a variety of scientific fields, the college seeks funding for: Science facilities and equipment We will enhance our laboratories for biology, chemistry, physics and engineering, and make improvements to the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y. We will invest in advanced technology and scientific instruments, and bring new resources to the study of computer science and astronomy, one of the most popular science subjects among non-science majors. Pre-Health Education To build on our strong record of preparing students for medical school and other health-related professional programs, we will create professorships, undergraduate research fellowships, an endowment for the Undergraduate Science Research Symposium and an annual fund that supports pre-health education in a variety of ways. Endowed Professorships and Research Funds for New Science Faculty Endowed professorships will attract exceptional science professors who secure large research grants and raise the profile of the college. Research funds for new faculty will also help the college attract academic stars. International Education International education transforms students on many levels. It prepares them for successful careers in a global economy, teaches them to navigate new cultures, and gives them new perspectives on themselves and their career ambitions. It also presents unique opportunities for scholarship and research. We seek support for: • Study abroad fellowships to make international study accessible to all students who demonstrate the intellectual and personal potential. • An endowment for the International Political Economy program to expand this rapidly growing interdisciplinary major, which prepares students for a variety of international careers. • Courses to meet students' growing interest in non-Western languages, such as Chinese, Arabic, Russian and Japanese. Dean's Academic Fund for Humanities and Service This fund helps the dean of the college facilitate intellectual inquiry, creative growth and service to humanity among the students at Rose Hill. Gifts to this fund will support: Undergraduate research To support the dean's goal of developing a culture of research on campus, this fund will enable undergraduates to deliver papers at professional conferences, conduct field research and pursue other endeavors that help them gain admission to the best graduate schools. Arts The dean will promote the performing and visual arts by supporting concerts, performances, exhibitions and music instruction, as well as facilities projects. Core curriculum The fund will enhance instruction and foster the creation of new courses by expanding the work of the Center for Teaching Excellence. Pre-Law advising The fund's uses will include a pre-law symposium and advisory program, which will increase our students' already high rate of acceptance to law school and prepare them for successful careers. Human service Support Human service activities, such as Global Outreach programs in developing countries and mentoring programs that match Fordham students with disadvantaged youth, is vital to the University's mission. Faculty The dean will develop lecture series for visiting faculty and world leaders, and will develop symposiums that bring the best scholars to campus.

Rams Men's Basketball Falls to Pitt in Preseason NIT- Nov. 12, 2012 Final Stats | Photo Gallery Pittsburgh, Pa. - Over 70 years ago, Fordham and Pittsburgh met in Madison Square Garden in the first ever televised college basketball game, a game won by the Panthers. Tonight, the teams squared off again and again the game was televised. And unfortunately for the Rams the result was the same as Pittsburgh defeated Fordham, 86-51, in the first round of the 2012 NIT Season Tip-Off in the Petersen Event Center. With the loss, the Rams fall to 0-2 on the season, while Pitt remains undefeated at 2-0. If the game had a soundtrack, Olivia Newtown John would have one of her songs on the cd as the Panthers got physical, outrebounding the Rams, 36-24, outscoring Fordham in the paint, 42-12, and forcing 19 Ram turnovers. "One of the keys to the game we told our guys was not to be out physicaled," said Fordham head coach Tom Pecora. "Pitt is a very good basketball team. It was like eighth or ninth graders playing the seniors in high school. But we've got to learn from this how to play more physical."

Studies have shown that businesses thrive when they capitalize on both male and female leadership styles. A mix of the strengths of men and women can help a corporation to maximize opportunities and navigate risk.
So why are there still so few female leaders in business?

Investigate with us on April 10 and 11 at the Women in Leadership Summit sponsored by the Gabelli School of Business at Fordham University—featuring anchor speaker Barbara Corcoran, a giant in the realm of U.S. real-estate entrepreneurs and a judge on CNBC’s popular business pitch show Shark Tank.

Designed not only for women, but also for the men who will work alongside them in corporations, nonprofits, and other organizations, this two-day event will allow students from universities across the region, active professionals, business faculty and members of the general public to discuss and debate the critical issue of women’s leadership in business.

The event will feature

- Keynote address by Barbara Corcoran
- Networking reception and other networking opportunities
- Resume workshop
- Appearances by representatives of major New York firms

Who should attend?

- Students from Fordham and other area universities
- Executives and managers who are looking to shape the conversation about business leadership and who are looking to recruit students of high potential
- Anyone seeking to better understand the challenges and opportunities women face as professionals
- Anyone interested in achieving success in business through a diversity of leadership styles and approaches

Basketball Is Reborn at an Old Bronx Gym

On Tuesday night, Fordham beat No. 22 Harvard, 60-54, the Rams’ first victory over a ranked opponent since 1978 at Rose Hill Gym, with a capacity of 3,470,which opened in 1925 and is the oldest gymnasium still being used by a Division I team.

And, perhaps fitting for a team that plays in one of New York’s basketball landmarks, Pecora has assembled a squad that relies heavily on talent from the tri-state area.
Eight of the 15 players on the Rams’ roster are from New York City. Against Harvard, the starting lineup featured four players from Brooklyn and one — Chris Gaston, the team’s leading scorer — from Union City, N.J.

UMass opened A-10 with victory over Fordham (7-7, 0-1). Jesuit Basketball Spotlight (JBS) project uses Jesuit basketball to raise awareness of Jesuit education (28 schools in US). Rams face Xavier University Musketeers (9-5, 0-1 Atlantic 10) Saturday, January 7, 2012 at 12 p.m. ET
