Fordham University is a private, coeducational research university in the United States, with three residential campuses located in and around New York City. Though now officially an independent institution "in the Jesuit tradition", it was originally founded by the Catholic Diocese of New York in 1841 as St. John's College. Fordham is one of the largest of the 28 member institutions in the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities.
The 22 Fordham University varsity sports teams are known as the "Rams." Their colors are maroon and white. The Fordham Rams are members of NCAA Division I and compete in the Atlantic 10 Conference for all sports except football.
