Young Women Rock! Visits Fordham University
We would like to extend a huge thank you to Sofia Pertuz, Hugo Benavides and Maria Aponte of the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Latin American & Latino Studies Department and the Office of Career Services at Fordham University for hosting our mentees’ college visit today on December 5, 2013. Each year, we partner with a university to organize our Young Women Rock! College Visit, which includes a private tour of the campus followed by an intimate Q&A panel with professors, deans and students.
After visiting New York University, Columbia University and Barnard College, we travelled from Brooklyn to the Bronx to visit Fordham University this year. For most our mentees (and some mentors), this was their first visit to the culturally-rich Bronx borough. The visit to Fordham included a discussion on, among other topics, college life, financial aid and scholarships, diversity, inclusion & academics.
Our discussion closed with the notion that education happens inside and outside of the classroom.
