Marymount Campus[edit]

Someone suggested that the "marymount campus" page be merged into Fordham's main page. I second that and also suggest that a whole new page be created on the history of the soon to be gone Marymount College.

Marymount Colleges[edit]

I am creating a new wiki entry which describes the Marymount colleges. I am also creating a disambiguation page for Marymount College so that people searching for Marymount College of Tarrytown will not simply find the page for Marymount College of Palos Verdes--especially since it was founded four decades AFTER this Marymount. Until a page with Marymount College of Tarrytown's history is up, though, I think the name of this page should be changed to Marymount College. or Marymount College of Fordham University.


I'd go further by adding a brief description for each of Fordham's three campuses. Other major universities with multiple campuses (George Washington for example) have this feature.

"Jesuit Tradition"[edit]

I recall when I attended in they did use that mealy-mouthed phrase: "in the Jesuit Tradition", but happily they are more straight forward about the University's Jesuit and Catholic nature today. In fact your link footnoting that quote nowhere contains that phrase. In fact, the statement on the linked page begins: "We’re a Jesuit, Catholic university." Though those affiliations are listed in the side bar, the actual article seems to obscure them. http://www.fordham.edu/info/20057/about http://www.fordham.edu/info/20961/history_and_mission/2997/mission_statement
