Looking Back With Joy: A Senior Retrospective

Whether you’re on the come-down from celebrating the weekend with friends, or taking the final exhale after packing up your apartment, we’ve got your post-long-weekend content with a final reflection from senior editor Emma Carey on her time at Fordham:
”There’s a reason we don’t notice how nice a walk around campus is until we’ve moved off. It’s the same reason we never realize that the cherry blossoms have bloomed until their petals are raining across campus, and why we seem to meet some of the best people second semester senior year.”

Well, well, well … If it isn’t the course of time passing exactly as expected. Maybe this is just because I’ve been packing my apartment into boxes for the past two days, but does there seem to be an extra pressure lately to compartmentalize our lives away? It feels like an unspoken countdown ...

The Freshman Refreshment

Ah... spring semester. You can smell it, can’t you? Temps are rising, Eddie’s is blooming, and darty texts are rushing in. But just as May’s flowers require April’s showers, so, too, does our relaxation require some heavy spring-cleaning. And for some of our student body (*ahem*) that might literally mean coming clean about the puke you left in the South elevator to avoid another community fine.
But FEAR NOT fresh-meat, our resident expert, Ryan Green, has got you covered on how you can Marie Kondo your mess of a life. Behold, The Freshman Refreshment: “When every first-year wakes up from their six-month bender and decides to get their sh*t together.”

Jesuit Friendliness or Mind-Control Scheme? A look into Fordham’s Omnipresent Door-Holding Culture

"You guys hold open doors for each other. Like, a lot. I’m not saying that we Californians don’t hold open doors. It just has to be… convenient. Like, a dude’s basically gotta be fondling my shadow for me to hold it open, and for girls, it’s about that range plus five feet. Here, it feels like everyone’s constantly scoping for chances."

“Jackie Scacco was three years old when her passion for cooking blossomed. Inspired by her Italian roots and her grandmother cooking for her family, Scacco quickly became a helping hand in the kitchen. 'Helping my Nona when I was younger made me feel like I was a part of the meal, and made me feel good,' Scacco explains, 'When I make food for others, it just makes me happy.'"

#DidYouKnow that Tino's Deli and Catering "has been a staple in the Belmont community for over fifty years. While it originally started out on East 187th across the street from Casa De Mozzarella, as business grew, they moved into a bigger space in a vacant community center which brings them to where they are today."
