A Note from Manresa Director, Dean Robert Parmach

Dear Prospective Manresa Scholar,


Robert J. Parmach, Ph.D.
Manresa Faculty Director and
FCRH Freshman Dean

As you finalize your college plans and look with excitement towards next year, I write to encourage you to explore Fordham’s signature Manresa Scholars Program. The Manresa Program is a vibrant and enriching living-learning opportunity for incoming FCRH and GSB students who, from the start, want to fuse their academic pursuits, spiritual growth, and social development in meaningful and enduring ways.

In Manresa, you’ll take a fall seminar core course with one of Fordham’s finest faculty members, learn about Ignatian spirituality, and do things like kayak on the Hudson River with new friends and learn the foundations of personal finance from a bank VP. More and more, incoming students tell me that Manresa was one of the main reasons why they chose to attend Fordham.

I invite you to read through this Manresa student blog, and let your peers tell you about why Manresa is special to them. They highlight some of their most meaningful and fun experiences in the Program this year, introduce themselves and their roles in the community, and reflect on the kinds of students who thrive here. For more detailed information on the Program, take a look at our Program website, http://www.fordham.edu/manresa. Feel free to contact the relevant staff members listed on our website with any questions you may have. The website also contains information about applying to Manresa. Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you on campus next year.


Dean Parmach
