Fairfield gives its students every opportunity possible, students just need to be active in taking advantage of them. Your student email will be bombarded with updates on campus activities and applications for positions in various clubs and organizations. Overall, I wish I got more involved freshman year. If you do, it will be to your benefit. Everyone gets super close! The people here are great. Making friends is easy. The party scene is exactly what you make of it. If you aren't into that, there's TONS to do at night. Academics are challenging but fair. It's college and I'm happy to be challenged. I love Fairfield. It wasn't my top choice but I would not trade it for the world. It's everything and more.

Housing at Fairfield is great! There are a variety of different places (on campus and off campus) to live. In some dorms you have to clean up after yourself but that's never been an issue from what I have experienced. The social atmosphere is very good, Fairfield offers the option of rescolleges which really adds to the social atmosphere.

The teachers are amazing! The classmates are supportive, and the staff want's what is best for you. Administrative offices don't really pick up the phone often, but when they do, they are really helpful.
