Homecoming Weekend!

This year, Fordham students couldn't have asked for a more exciting Homecoming Weekend! One of my favorite weekends at Fordham during the fall semester is Homecoming. Rose Hill is alive with students, families, and alumni creating an exciting and fun atmosphere on campus.

Homecoming Weekend always brings together Fordham fans for a football game, and this year was no different. The Fordham Rams took on Columbia for the annual battle for the Liberty Cup at Jack Coffey Field on the Rose Hill campus. The stands were packed with students, families, and fans ready to cheer on the Rams, who went into the game undefeated. Sure enough, the Rams defeated Columbia by a score of 52-7, moving them to an undefeated record of 4-0 to the delight of all the Rams fans present.

Besides football, another really exciting part of Homecoming Weekend for seniors is the tent. This tent is for alumni of Fordham and current seniors only, and it is set up on the main green on Campus, called Eddie's by students. There's food and drinks served in the tent, and underclassmen wait eagerly until finally, after three years, they're allowed to go inside! Being a junior, I can't wait to see what the tent holds for me next year.
