Join Summer Springboard in Manhattan this Summer for an Experience You’ll Never Forget!

Fordham University at Lincoln Center is an excellent urban campus at which to get a feel for university life and pursue an educational track that speaks to you. Not only is our host school a top university with a microcosm all its own, it is a gateway to the endless possibilities that NYC has to offer. Read on for five reasons to make New York home this summer!

#1: The city attracts the best & brightest

As the saying goes, “If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere.” NYC has long lured the most gifted and successful from every field, from actors to entrepreneurs to artists. This is also true in academia: SSB’s instructors are at the top of their fields, from finance geniuses to blockchain innovators. Want to learn from the best? NYC is the place to be!

#2: You like to be in the middle of the action 

Step out of your dorm room and you’re surrounded by the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. Fordham University’s Lincoln Center location is as “in it” as one could possibly be–Central Park is a two-minute walk, and Rockefeller Center, Carnegie Hall, and a multitude of museums, educational institutions and other main attractions are just a hop, skip and jump away. 

#3: The food is *muah* 

New York is America’s melting pot of culture, and nothing can rival the abundance of new and interesting foods that the city has to offer. Whether you’re a major foodie or just appreciate a quality slice of pizza, your taste buds are in for a treat. In addition to standard dining hall fare, you’ll have the opportunity to taste a wide range of foods, from New York-style bagels to Italian food and everything in between. 

#4: There’s nowhere as iconic as the Big Apple

You can’t turn a corner without encountering a famous landmark–the Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park, even the yellow cabs are symbols of the city that never sleeps. Life feels like a movie when you’re surrounded by the architecture and culture that’s been featured in films, TV, music, and pop culture for ages. 

#5: NYC is a hub for arts, music, and entertainment

From Andy Warhol to Lady Gaga, New York has both produced and lured some of America’s (and the world’s!) most groundbreaking artists in every medium imaginable. It is the birthplace of numerous art movements and has inspired songs, plays, films, sculptures and street art of all types. The city comes alive with music daily. 

#6: It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a taste of college life….

So you might as well go big in the biggest city in America!
