Same here, after going to the ASD I saw a LOT of religious Jews (wearing the beanie), and the school seemed to be pushing the Jewish angle. Hope my money goes to someone else.
Has anyone considered this? I have not put much thought into it myself, I think it might be something to think about. Can anyone offer any insight into how non-jews are treated at 'dozo?
Yea, I can weigh in. So I am a 1L at Cardozo. I also happen to be Roman Catholic. Is there a substantial Jewish population on campus, yea. Are you going to see Jewish men wearing "the beanie"-yea. Are they the majority, no. Have I ever been treated differently or felt not welcomed because I was not Jewish, no. Is there a "jewish agenda" on campus, well in all honestly I have no idea what that means, but nothing that I have seen. As some of you may know, today is Ash Wednesday in Catholicism. There were a lot of people walking around with crosses on their heads. There is a christian-as well as a jewish- student club. Having spent a lot of time on both campuses, Cardozo is no more jewish than Fordham is catholic. Oh yea, I went to a catholic college and parochial school my whole life. Also one of my better friends at Cardozo is muslim. They offer rooms up for those who require them for prayer, meaning they accommodate muslim students. Last semester one of my professors decided to talk about how religion is just for the dilusional, there are religious students, but it is not a religious school. I have 5 professors right now, 1 jewish, 1 athiest with jewish roots, 1 athiest with catholic roots, 1 catholic, and one who i have no idea.
