Majors: You have to apply directly into the nursing program. It is very challenging and well respected. Everyone knows it is the hardest major on campus. It is totally worth it. You learn a lot and are totally prepared for the real world nursing. I 110% recommend it!!!!

Guys & Girls: Preppy is definitely the Fairfield stereotype, but you will also find a variety of other styles on campus. Everyone is pretty nice and well dressed. People like to workout, study hard, socialize, and party.

Campus Housing: The housing is awesome. There are many options for housing. The RA's can be a bit strict at times and may write people up. But everyone gets written up from time to time so no need to worry. There is a great sense of community in the dorms. Everyone is friends with everyone. The RA's plan great events for the dorms too. There is free food served every week in the dorms too!
