FCAA blog now accepting your posts...

No need to keep your opinions to yourself.

The Fordham College Alumni Association (FCAA), the oldest alumni organization serving the Rose Hill community, has launched a blog to help us share our thoughts and memories of Fordham with alums—and future alums—all over the world.

The FCCA’s goal is to strengthen the bonds between alums and the college. So in the Jesuit tradition of thoughtful prose, you are welcome to submit a personal reflection—even more than one—for review at

As the oldest, independent alumni association of Fordham University, more than a century young, the FCAA presents events and assistance to both its core constituencies: current and future alumni.

Did you know…?
The FCAA funds the George McMahon, S.J. Travel Fellowship, two full scholarships (for legacy students), and has a record of supporting numerous other initiatives impacting the advancement of Fordham College.

As an alum of Fordham College at Rose Hill and Thomas More College, you are already a member of this historic, service-orientated association that continues to build relationships. Stay tuned for upcoming events and developments.

Want to serve…?
If you would like to support the work of the FCAA as a Board member, please contact FCAA President Rich Platoni, FCRH ’82. Your ideas and energy will be a great contribution to the future of Fordham College. Besides, it’s fun!
