The University proudly recognizes families with a Fordham heritage. During Senior Week and Commencement, there are several unique opportunities for families to celebrate their Fordham legacy. Read more about the events of the Legacy Program, then register below.


Fordham alumni families are invited to join us for a special complimentary reception at Rose Hill toasting the success of this year's graduates—and their parents!

Please note that although seating for the Rose Hill Parent Appreciation Dinner Dance begins at 7:15 p.m., the event will not begin until after this reception, thus families will be able to attend both events.

Parents of Lincoln Center graduates unable to attend the Legacy Reception at Rose Hill will receive a special gift at the Lincoln Center Family Reception.

Registration is now closed. Walk-ins are welcome.


The Legacy Procession is an exclusive opportunity for Fordham alumni parents to join the University's commencement procession and be part of their son or daughter's graduation. After the procession, alumni are seated on the Terrace of Presidents for the duration of the ceremony with the commencement speaker, honorary degree recipients, and other distinguished guests.

Parents will assemble on the lower level of Hughes Hall, receive a Fordham legacy sash, and join the main procession on Edwards Parade behind the alumni verge and banner bearers.

Registration is now closed. We are not able to accommodate additional processors.
