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.

Online registration for the Legacy Reception is now closed. Legacy families are welcome to join as walk-ins.


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 the Presidents for the duration of the ceremony with the commencement speaker, honorary degree recipients, and other distinguished guests.

The Procession has reached its capacity and is now closed. You may register for the Legacy Reception above.
