5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At first, I loved Fairfield. Then after a few weeks, I began to question if I even wanted to stay here. Now, I got involved in various bands, club sports, campus ministry, and have made a great deal of friends. Class sizes are great and professors care about their students. I would not trade my school for the world.

4 College Junior

Academics: Great if you apply yourself

4 College Junior

Local Area: Upper Middle Class CT suburb of NYC

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Health center is great but far away from most of campus

2 College Junior

Athletics: Facilities are pretty mediocre for regular students, but they are renovating our field house

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Life on the beach is great, but only available to seniors

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Same thing every weekend, same faces too. Townhouses get old quick for underclassmen.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of good places off campus to eat

3 College Junior

Administration: Visitation is easy/lenient compared to other schools, everything else is not.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Apartments are the nicest/newest. Townhouses are a rite of passage for Juniors.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: A lot of business majors. Great staff behind the programs.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Great professors, I've learned a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like it, but I definitely wish I received more aid.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Upper-middle class to very wealthy area.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Pretty friendly overall. Can feel kind of cliquey though.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: School puts up ads for off campus apartments for any students who want to move out on a bulletin board in the BCC and upperclassmen get to live on the beach.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not to different from other schools.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Food is definitely not that bad. There should be more variety of meals throughout the week in Barone and dining dollars should be accepted at places like The Levee on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They usually only give full rides/full tuition scholarships to Bridgeport kids and a few other urban parter schools. Others do receive some financial aid but normally not as much as they need.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus living is certainly not for everyone.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's not really an availability until senior year, but once it becomes a possibility the beach houses offer a wide range of space and luxury.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Usually the same thing every weekend, one house party or another. Always fun though.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Though the prices could be rather steep, there are an assortment of healthy options not too far from campus.

2 College Junior

Administration: Honestly, the level of campus strictness hinders one from becoming and/or acting as an independent. For many, personal freedom has actually dwindled from that of living at home.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There lacks a variety of places in which one could use their meal swipes, though Barone offers a wide-range of food that appeals to an array of eaters.
