Henry Lee, a top chef from Hong Kong, visited Rose Hill from Nov. 25 to 27 as part of Sodexo’s Global Chef program.

He prepared meals for students in The Marketplace cafeteria, opening his visit with a sampling of his favorite dishes, continuing with a lunch and dinner, and ending with a traditional Chinese breakfast.

Chef Lee also held his own cooking class, where students learned how to prepare beef with broccoli. They enjoyed a taste of Asian cuisine and some of the chef's best-kept secrets in this informational and free class hosted by the Student Culinary Council (SCC).

The council announced that the next Sodexo Global Chef will visit Rose Hill this spring and will hail from Italy.

The Graduate School of Business Administration hosted its first “Style Worthwhile” fashion show last semester at Studio 450 in Manhattan.

Students were accompanied on the runway by members of the school’s faculty, including James A.F. Stoner, Ph.D., professor of management systems, and GBA administrators Greg Bergida, director of the Office of Student Life, and Judy Paul (pictured), director of the Office of Career Management.

Proceeds from the event, which was staged by the school’s retail club, went to support Dress for Success, a nonprofit group that provides career development and business attire to women.

This Month in Fordham History

Medical School Building Opens at Rose Hill

January 1913 was a significant month in the life of the Fordham School of Medicine. On Jan. 1, a new medical school building opened near the Bathgate Avenue entrance of the Rose Hill campus. (It was supposedly situated there so that cadavers could be discreetly delivered.)

The building—today, Finlay Hall—contained a clinic on the first and second floors and two lecture halls holding 200 students each. The medical school itself had opened in 1905, followed by several new schools and colleges that marked Fordham’s transformation into a university.

National standards for medical schools did not yet exist; applicants to Fordham’s school needed one year of college studies, including biology, physics and inorganic chemistry. The school enjoyed a period of success, according to the standards of the day, but ultimately failed to raise a sufficient endowment and closed in 1921.
