The Gabelli School of Business Wishes You a Merry Christmas

The Invitation to the Party
 Each year, Dean Rapaccioli, the Dean of the Gabelli School of Business, invites all of the business students and faculty to a Christmas party. As a business student, I look forward to this Christmas party each year. Although it's not a large affair, there is always good food and pleasant Christmas carols to put us in the spirit of Christmas. Moreover, it's a really nice way for the business students and faculty to get together and celebrate the Christmas season. All of the class deans, a large portion of the faculty, and most of the business students make sure to make it over to Hughes Hall for this annual party. 

This year, we were surprised by an addition to the annual party. Rather than simply listen to recorded Christmas music, Dean Rapaccioli invited the University Choir to sing Christmas carols at the party. Dean Rapaccioli herself even made requests and got the whole Business School to join in to sing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" together. Fordham students always seem to be so busy since we are involved in so many clubs, internships, and activities, but it was nice that so many people in the Business School took time out of their day to come together for this party. Moreover, I will never forget singing Christmas carols with my class deans and professors. Not everyone had a beautiful voice, but all sang proudly because at Fordham, we are truly a RAMily.
