The Fordham Ram

2024 Commencement Issue

Dear 2024 Graduates,

Congratulations on your graduation. Graduating is no small feat, and the class of 2024 has encountered its fair share of challenges throughout their past four years at Fordham University. The class of 2024 graduated high school in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, its first year at Fordham characterized by the unremitting pandemic: virtual orientation and classes, grab-and-go meals and VitalCheck. The pandemic’s standstill on student life extended through the fall of 2021 when masks were still required and students received regular emails alerting them of a COVID-19 close contact in one of their classes. Despite a welcome to Fordham that was anything but conventional, the class of 2024 persevered — embracing the abnormality of it all and creating an enduring legacy nonetheless. The class of 2024’s time at Fordham has consisted of strong leadership, outstanding athletic achievements, innovation, the inauguration of a new university president and, most importantly, tenacity. We at The Fordham Ram congratulate you all on your outstanding achievements, and we look forward to watching you continue to flourish in the years to come. It’s because of your successes that we dedicate the final edition of the Ram to this year’s commencement ceremony and the class of 2024. Once again, congratulations!

Wishing you the best of luck,
Sofia Donohue, Editor-in-Chief
