After Fairfield University

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.

Academically, this school is great. Professors are experts and very useful resources. Some majors (business, nursing, bio) are much more difficult than others. As for going out, it gets better each year. The beach is really fun but the townhouses get old, especially when it gets cold here. People are generally friendly, but it is cliquey. Sort of like high school. Bottom line... there are better things out there.

Fairfield is a beautiful and rural campus set in a quaint town filled with plenty of eateries and beach front homes. The classrooms are updated and spacious do to the low student to professor ratio. Not to mention that over 90% of professors have the highest degree in their subject and have worked in their profession.
