Exceptional Graduates in the Class of 2004



Fordham Students
Fly High with NASA

An industrious student team of aspiring scientists from Fordham College at Rose Hill experienced zero gravity in March as part of NASA’s Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program. The Fordham team—seniors Eve Stenson, Peter D’Amico, Meghan McDonald, Kelly Sheridan and Michael Thorne—competed against 117 teams from around the country to win a coveted spot in the 2004 program.

In addition to tumbling in a weightless environment, the students conducted research aboard the famed Boeing KC-135 plane used by NASA to simulate a reduced-gravity environment. Sponsored by NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, the program allows students to propose and design reduced-gravity research experiments that can be tested on the KC-135, an aircraft originally used by astronauts to prepare for space flights.

Inside Fordham is pleased to highlight eight members of the class of 2004 on the following pages, who, like these students, have enriched the greater Fordham community with their hard work, passion and dedication.
