Beauty In The Bronx: Fordham Foliage

It is way too tempting to not jump in those leaves
Fall is a magical time of the year. The leaves are changing, the weather is starting to come to a comfortable crisp temperature, and when you walk on campus at night, you can start to smell the musky odor of the fireplaces burning. Fordham in the fall, or any season for that matter, is the epitome of magic. Fordham’s Rose Hill Campus was placed on Buzzfeed’s College Campuses that were made for Instagram. Their argument? The beauty that is Keating Hall in the Winter, Spring, Summer, and of course Fall.
One of many snowfalls last year!

Fordham is busting with piles of colorful leaves, pumpkin décor, and sunset skies that are always mesmerizing. The Fall is a great time to visit Fordham not only for it’s beautiful campus, but for the surrounding attractions that the Bronx has to offer. Across from the Fordham entrance gate, the Botanical Garden welcomes visitors with strings of white lights, signifying that the holiday season is not too far away! A traditional attraction of the Botanical Garden (also known a the BoTans to Fordham students) is the Holiday Train Show. All of the miniature New York City landmarks that are recreated in the Holiday Train Show are created entirely out of natural objects like tree branches and acorns. From the massive Brooklyn Bridge replica to Grand Central Station, the show is a Fordham student and Fordham Family favorite!

When you come to our beautiful campus, be sure to snap a picture of Keating Hall, the statue of Saint Ignatius Loyola, or one of the staple Fordham skies, post it to Instagram and tag @FordhamAdmissions!
