What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful and has a very modern look. The class sizes are advertised as a 1:14 ratio, but classes can be as big as 30 students for one professor. There are a lot of parties at the townhouses on the weekends, but you don't have to go if you don't want to. There are a lot of different clubs and organizations you could attend if you wanted to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Completely lacking in diversity or a culture of intellectual curiosity, this school is for the truly basic and bland of Long Island and New Jersey. Honestly, how unadventurous must one be to choose a school in Fairfield County? The campus is like a kindergarten, plenty of security and a strong perimeter to make sure everyone can get loaded on cheap beer without more then the occasional date rape. Don't worry, the curriculum is safe and will ensure no challenging ideas ever need be confronted in class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When choosing colleges I second guessed myself and ended up chasing a school that I wasn't excited about going to. I knew it was not the school for me the second I stepped on campus. The people are all the same. It is an extension of high school. The girls are rude, not friendly, judgmental. Same with the boys. Everyone is superficial and values social status and your appearance in order to be friends with you. I find that most people also hate the school and therefore there is a negative energy at all times, a toxic environment. The party scene is terrible, there are many weekends where nothing is going on and I'm just in my dorm room. Campus security does less protecting and more punishment. I feel like the school doesn't support me, instead tries to screw me over. The dorms are in poor condition. They don't even have enough housing for the class size which can become frustrating. The food is also terrible, I find myself barely eating because the Tully is so repulsive. We have an Instagram page that makes fun of the food. The school is a joke for the money you pay. If you aren't into social climbing and trying hard, than this school is not for you! If you're looking for a normal experience that doesn't remind you of a high school movie, than chose another school. There is no school pride, no one is authentically excited to be here. It has been possibly the worst decision of my life. There is very much a stereotype here, if you do not fit, you will not have a good time. I have never been more depressed and unhappy in my entire life. The lack of support for education is also terrible, I have bad ADD and the support I was offered brought me down academically which means now I cannot even transfer. The support with friends is also terrible. This is the only place I have a hard time making friends and down to earth people. I wish everyday I went somewhere else. Stay clear of this place. If these are supposed to be the best years of my life than I am most definitely sure the rest of my life will suck.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fairfield University has many opportunities both on and off campus. Academically, it is a great school to go to as the class sizes are small, and professors are always available and want to help. As a Jesuit school, there are overarching themes that could be found in every class that focuses on bettering yourself and others. However, it is expensive as is the surrounding area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Originally, I didn't want to go to Fairfield. However, after touring, I immediately fell in love with it and have never looked back on my decision. The endless opportunities to get involved start as soon as you put down your deposit--you just have to go out and seek them. Every day, there is something to do, and the student groups do an excellent job in staying active. The amazing Jesuit education available is life-changing, and you will learn SO much by being a Stag. The community is so tight, and everywhere you go, you will find a familiar face. I love being a Fairfield Stag, and am extremely in love with my school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University offers small classes and direct contact with professors and Deans. The University continues to grow and offer more activities and academic concentrations. Activities are offered on campus as well as off campus which provide opportunities to further engage in an academic environment, career and internship opportunities as well as extracurricular sports and arts activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful and constantly being renovated. For example we just got a new dining hall, new gym with an indoor track and a new school of nursing building. We are known for our school of nursing and business. We have no big sports like no hockey or football.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like Fairfield University. We have a very nice campus that is being improved almost non-stop. They just completed a new parking garage and a new dorm and business center are under construction. The courses are challenging, but the professors are easily available for extra help and I am learning a lot. My two gripes would be that the food could be a lot better and I wish downtown Fairfield CT was closer. The university offers a free bus service, but it is unpredictable. There are a lot of things to do in Fairfield and the surrounding towns, but since Freshman are not allowed to have cars on campus, we have to Uber a lot.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fairfield University is a great institution that is well known for its academics. The classroom sizes allow for a dynamic classroom where each and every student is able to engage and ask questions. This helps to promote a deeper learning of the material and allows each student to get clarification where needed. The only criticism of Fairfield is that often times events on the weekends are few and far between. A suggestion would be to add more on/off campus events that allow students to have something to do on the weekends if they are not at the beach or doing homework. Also the athletics could use a bigger support system because often times there are few fans at the home games for many of the sports.
