    Make sure this small Jesuit school is something you are looking for. Some people have a hard time adjusting to Fairfield so make sure to ask any questions you have.

    First of all, make sure you have enough money to go there. Don't feel bad about being a commuter student; they have a whole commuter lounge just for you where you can study, make friends, and just hang out. A part of going to this school is their rigorous core curriculum. It is something you'll have to deal with. I suggest that you register for the harder classes first so that you can focus more on your major later in your time at school. Take everything they tell you at Orientation with a grain of salt; they try to make the school sound better than it is naturally because they are trying to get you to go there. Listen to what they say, and then ask some students there from all different backgrounds (commuter, athlete, science major, English major, etc) about it to get the full perspective. Finally, bring a camera, because the campus is open and beautiful, and you might want to take a picture of your first encounter with the deer and wild turkeys that roam the grounds. (Don't worry; they don't bite as long as you don't get too close.)

    The first semester is the most difficult as it is the transition. However, this is the time to make friends, connections, study hard and start out with good GPA, and get involved with different clubs. You should be prepared for college academics, and realize that they will require work. Students should ALWAYS make the most out of their semesters at Fairfield by putting in their best efforts in class and getting involved on campus. Fairfield offers opportunities that you would not otherwise have - such as access to great professors, study abroad, and more. - Definitely take advantage of it to make the most of it!

    Although you are close to the city, you have to make sure your travel plans are solid every time you go (in other words, don't make that the reason why you come to Fairfield University). The beach during senior year is one of the reasons why students come to Fairfield, but only a certain number of students are accepted at the beach, so you cannot get your hopes up.
