"My weekend began with a trip to the Top of the Rock at 30 Rockefeller Center, as the leader of a FlipSide program. We brought twenty students down to take in the beautiful scenes of New York City at night. On Saturday, I went down to Yankee Stadium to watch the Ram-Crusader Cup. The weather was a bit chilly but it was overall a great game and a fantastic atmosphere. Sunday was spent laboring over the sophomore Gabelli Consulting Cup challenge with my five teammates, as we prepare for our final presentation."

"During my weekend, I went to the wonderful, under-looked borough of Queens. Queens is one of the most diverse areas in the whole United States of America, and houses some of the best food. I went to a great Korean BBQ place called, "Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong." For dessert, I went to 10Below to get some Thai Ice Cream. Queens has some great food, and I would highly recommend that everyone visits at least once!"
"Climbing the stairs of the shuttle bus packed with Fordham students, I felt the electric energy in the air as we drove towards Yankee Stadium for the Ram-Crusader Cup. My friends and I joined the sea of Rams in the bleachers to cheer our football team on to a stunning 54-14 victory! Once again, Fordham proved triumphant in the Bronx, retaining the Ram-Crusader trophy! #gorams"

"This past weekend, Fordham hosted the "Ram-Crusader Cup," a matchup between two Jesuit powerhouses, Holy Cross and Fordham University. The game, which was free for students, took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Fordham topped Holy Cross 54-14, but the game was nonetheless an enjoyable day for fans of both teams, as Fordham and Holy Cross students and their family members congregated at the stadium. I attended the game, and to my excitement, many of my own family members- Holy Cross Alumni and present students, as well as others who wanted to join in on the festivities- came for a visit. In the student section, Fordham pride was shining across the bleachers on T- shirts, flags, and with the Fordham band. Overall, the crusader cup was an energetic, buzzing event. Hopefully, Fordham can continue the tradition throughout years to come."
