Favorite thing about FU:

Favorite Fordham memory(-ies): 

Spring Weekend has always been one of my favorite events at Fordham. My birthday always fell on this weekend, and I remember turning 21 at the Under the Tent Dance being a fun night with my friends.

 

How does it feel to be graduating? 

It’s bittersweet. There are definitely going to be a lot of things I’ll miss, like living in close proximity to my friends, taking interesting classes and having all the freedom, but I feel ready for the next chapter in my life to start and I’m excited to see what the future has in store!

 

What are your plans post-grad? 

I plan on working at a media/news company in New York City.

 

What are you going to miss the most? 

Living with my friends, the freedom, and my favorite professors.

What was your favorite class at Fordham and why? 

Intro to Journalism. Although the class was a lot of work, it forced me out of my comfort zone by meeting new people and going to events I would normally never attend. I was able to improve my writing skills, which is something I’m very passionate about. I also discovered how much I love interviewing people and writing human-interest stories.

 

What’s your favorite Arthur Avenue restaurant? 

I love all the restaurants on Arthur Ave, but my favorite is Antonio’s, which is actually on Belmont Ave.

 

What is your advice for future rams? 

Try everything that interests you and don’t be afraid to take risks. The more you try things and put yourself out there, the more you grow, learn and connect with others. 

What should all underclassmen do before graduating? 

Take advantage of internship opportunities if your schedule allows, especially being that we’re so close to the city. Having at least one internship will give you a better idea of what you want to do after graduation.

 

Metro North, D Train or Ram Van? 

Metro North.

 

Bronx Zoo or Botanical Gardens? 

Botanical Gardens – I’ve ran there so much at this point that I know that place like the back of my hand!

 

Best sandwich at Rams? 

I’m actually a Best Deli girl, and my favorite is the Yankee wrap.

 

What’s your go-to karaoke song? 

‘All I Wanna Do’ by Sheryl Crow.

John Mayer.

Writing for a news publication, magazine or media network.
