|Edwards Parade looking good.|
Thanks to the dedication of essential personnel who oversaw the Rose Hill campus through Hurricane Sandy, the view of Edwards Parade (above) on Oct. 30 was calm and intact.
Sporting a slight stubble from two days on the job, hospitality services manager Brian Poteat said that service workers stayed for the duration to keep students well-fed, while some 120 members of Fordham’s facilities management worked 24/7 to keep buildings functioning and to secure the campus. By Tuesday, many damaged trees had been cut back and barricades put in place to keep the community safe.

Rose Hill freshman Arthur Van Sutendael, who lives in Alumni Court South, said that Sandy gave him a chance to interact more with his dorm mates when internet service went down.
“We played apples-to-apples, it was really fun,” he said.
"This wasn’t scary, but then I’m from Florida,” he added. “We have a lot of hurricanes.”
