Fordham Takes The Chew

"New York is my campus, Fordham is my school." This motto definitely emphasizes all that New York City has to offer and Fordham students are not afraid to take advantage of being in one of the best cities in the world. Fordham wants its students to not only excel in school but to also have fun! And what better way to have fun in New York than to sit in a live audience for a daytime talk show?

Residence halls want to make sure that the students are having a good time and resident assistants (RA) are in charge of running programs that will get the students more involved. As a senior, I want to make sure that I take advantage of these programs before I graduate, and one recent program that caught my eye was the opportunity to sit in the live audience for a taping of the ABC daytime show The Chew. The show is about lifestyle which includes everything from recipes and Do-It-Yourself crafts to etiquette tips and is hosted by Iron Chef America's Mario Batali and Michael Symon, Top Chef's Carla Hall, What Not to Wear's Clinton Kelly, and author of several wellness books Daphne Oz. RA Drew from the Residence hall Salice was able to get four free tickets to see the show, so my friends and I made sure to sign up. We all love watching the show and were extremely excited to be a part of it.

The day started off bright and early as the four of us got on a 7am Ram Van to make sure that we would make it on time. Luckily, the ABC studio for The Chew is only a couple of blocks away from Fordham's Lincoln Center campus. Once inside, we were approached to sit on the tasting row, which allowed us to get a small tasting of the recipes used on the show. A great day just got better! The show was really fun and interactive as the hosts of the show danced and talked with the audience during the breaks. Before we knew it, the show was over and it was time to head back to campus. This was definitely a great experience that I will never forget, and going to Fordham made it possible. 

If you would like to see the episode we were on make sure to watch Tuesday, October 15 at 1pm (EST) or 12pm (CST/PST). Want to learn more about how to get tickets to see The Chew? Visit ABC's website,
