Global Transition Student Coordinator Application

    Introduction to Global Transition

    Global Transition is the name of a 5 day program that takes place in late August, designed to welcome undergraduate international students to Fordham. The program aims to help these new students adjust to their first days and weeks at Fordham and in New York. This goal is achieved through a schedule of activities, outings, and information sessions. Global Transition is also a great way to get to know the incoming international class, as well as some other current students with an international background or interest.
