At Fordham there are so many different clubs and organizations to join. When I came to Fordham I was surprised and excited to learn about the Polish Cultural Exchange.
At club meetings we spend time learning about the culture and language of Poland while eating Polish chocolates and other treats. However, we also do many other fun activities that may interest everyone, regardless of their nationality. Two of the Polish Cultural Exchange’s major events include hosting a “Pierogi Take-Out Dinner” and marching in the Pulaski Day Parade.
The “Pierogi Take-Out Dinner” takes place in McGinley Center during the Fall Semester. During the dinner, club members sell pierogies (Polish dumplings stuffed with potato, cheese and meat typically served with onions or sour cream) to students. Pierogies are delicious and they always sell quickly!

The Pulaski Day Parade takes place in October in New York City. We dress in red and white (the colors of Poland) and march on 5th Avenue from 30th Street to 60th Street alongside other schools like NYU and Pace. The parade is a great time to show Polish pride and it is a great opportunity to march in a parade in the city.

So, if you are Polish, or even if you are not, the Polish Cultural Exchange hosts many activities that may interest you!
