          • V
            1963-1967, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

            The Fordham Jesuit experience schooled me in how to approach the posing and answering of the important questions of day to day life and how best to relate to my fellow men and women of all walks and circumstances of life. My college years close to Manhattan taught me how to better appreciate the great art, music, dance, theater and food of a world class city. The Bronx campus adjacent to the New York Botanical Gardens and the Bronx Zoo, and amidst its ethnic neighborhoods provided welcomed opportunities for thoughtful walking time away from the books. Lessons and memories for a lifetime.
