More than 700 Fordham graduates from a diverse mix of schools converged on the Plaza at the University’s buzzing Lincoln Center campus on a perfect Friday evening in June to reconnect with classmates, celebrate community, and eat, drink, and dance under the stars and the Manhattan skyline.

The annual Block Party reunion, held June 7, kicked off with a late afternoon guided campus tour and a jazz performance by a group of student and faculty musicians. Alumni from five schools—Fordham College at Lincoln Center, the Gabelli School of Business, the Graduate School of Education, the Graduate School of Social Service, and the School of Professional and Continuing Studies—gathered for receptions throughout campus that honored distinguished alumni and celebrated retiring faculty. After the school-specific receptions, alumni and guests gathered on the Plaza, where they spent the night enjoying refreshments and a DJ.
