Spring Events at Fordham

There is never a dull moment at Fordham, and every season has its perks.  But with the spring in full bloom, campus has been especially busy.  Friday evening the Autism Speaks club held their annual Light it Up Blue event to help raise autism awareness.  It took place in O’Keefe Commons from 6pm-10pm, with food and entertainment all night.  There were live performances by The Fordham Dance Team and The Ramblers, as well as raffle prizes including gift certificates to several different local eateries.  There were hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, dessert and more.  Students were encouraged to wear blue clothes, and temporary tattoos were available at the door.  There was a great turnout!

On Saturday Eddie’s Parade was packed all day long, with people playing different sports and just relaxing on blankets.  Relay for Life took place from 2pm-10pm, which brought an extra excitement to campus.  The walk took place around the perimeter of Eddie’s, and there were games, food, and performances all day long.  Later, Fordham’s Hellenic Society held their annual Greek Night at 7pm in the McGinley Ballroom to celebrate their culture.  The night included a dance performance by club members, catered traditional Greek food, a DJ and dance floor, raffle prizes, and drinks for those 21 and over.  All students are welcome and I will definitely be returning next year!
