Raised on Radio

Read a tribute to Pete Fornatale (FCRH '67), host of Mixed Bag on WFUV 90.7 FM (, written by Lewis "Lew" Goodman (FCRH '71), on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of Fornatale's first WFUV broadcast. Goodman, who grew up in the Bronx, was inspired by Fornatale's mid-1960s broadcasts to attend Fordham and to become a DJ at WFUV.

Global Outreach Alumni Project

Paul Francis (GSAS '03) was one of 13 Fordham graduates to participate in the first Global Outreach alumni project, a 10-day trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. The project, hewrites, "challenged our views on globalism, fostered a deep sense of communal development and enhanced our commitment to the Jesuit philosophy of being men and women for others."

Fordham's Irish Connections

"The ties between Fordham University and Ireland are deep and long-lasting," writes Carolyn Farrar (FCRH '82), a freelance writer living in County Donegal, Ireland.
