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.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid is a benefit limited to those who truly qualify. Fairfield, however, is generous with consideration to scholarship and subsequent financial opportunities.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Unfortunately, the housing lottery process is quite complicated and, oftentimes, unsatisfying. The fact of the matter is there are too many students, and not enough housing to accommodate these students. There is no guarantee that one will live in the area or housing block they prefer.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: its hard getting to live off campus

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: the parties here are fun

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: there are some nice places around

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They can be better on certain things.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got some money but need more because tuition goes up every year.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: its good somedays but other days there nothing good to eat.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love it because you meet a lot of new people while living on campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: General safety is average, but things like assaults happen behind closed doors.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There is very small student attendance at varsity sport events.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is an incredibly small selection and one needs to have connections to find a house off campus for senior year. The only way students have housing senior year is if they plan it out at least two years in advance.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Everybody seems to be obsessed with partying and all they do is get sloppy drunk and get in trouble from RAs or from DPS. Townhouses get rowdy and I have been pushed around too many times there.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have never dined at a place that gave me a student discount, but there are a variety of places to go to when students want to eat off campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Fairfield is not any more strict than it should be. There are fair repercussions for those who get transported to the hospital for consuming too much alcohol.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid because I would not be awarded any. However, I definitely could have been given a greater academic scholarship considering that I am paying a great amount to attend this school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining in Barone gets old after a while. There is need for more dining dollars given to us from the university, considering that we already pay so much to go there.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing at Fairfield University is ideal. All the dorms of each grade level are nice and buildings are cleaned regularly. However, since the school is continuously growing, the university is running out of space to put all the students, so some do not know where they are to live in the fall.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love going into town to get food with my friends. Most are not terribly expensive and there are always new places to try, along with some oldies but goodies.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The DPS officers are all very nice. Everybody (officers, RAs, ACs, etc.) are all trying to help students out, not hurt them, so while they do enforce the rules, it is for students' own good.
