A Fairfield University student is driven, both academically and personally. I am in the business school; classes are not easy, they are very challenging and I enjoy that. Many Fairfield students participate in community service projects, work part time, play a varsity or club sport and maintain solid GPAs. I am one of those students that does all of the above. A Fairfield University student is polite, well spoken, caring, and willing to help whenever called upon. The University believes in developing the whole person so that we can lead lives of value and deliver change. I believe this is the type of student that you will find on the campus of Fairfield University.

A typical Fairfield student is kind, welcoming, and open-minded. With less than 5,000 undergraduates, the student population is extremely close knit and well integrated. A majority of the student body engages in on campus clubs, games, and activities. Giving back to Fairfield University and being involved on campus is a major part of any Fairfield student's life.

If you want to attend Fairfield University, you have to be smart (because they look at your SAT scores.) You should be able to deal with wild turkeys and random deer, both of which roam around campus occasionally. You should be able to stand the cold and fluctuating New England climate. You DO NOT have to be affiliated with any religion, although it is a Jesuit institution. You should be friendly, kind, and tolerate commuter students. Do not assume everybody lives on campus. Finally, you must be prepared for the workload. This isn't high school anymore.

Have fun!
