Labor Day weekend marked both the unofficial end of summer this year and the arrival of Fordham’s Class of 2018. At Lincoln Center’s McKeon Hall, students oohed and aahed the views from their rooms as high as 22 stories up, while below them, Law School faculty and staff that had previously been located in various spaces had already begun to enjoy camaraderie of sharing a unified space.
The Rose Hill campus likewise welcomed 130 incoming freshman with a new space, the recently renovated Loyola Hall. And while that six-story, 86-year-old Gothic structure bears little resemblance to the undulating glass and metal curves of McKeon Hall, the message from within remained the same: Welcome.
