    Fairfield University is a prestigious and nice university. It may be expensive, but their focus on creating countless student activities, trying to prevent students from drinking and smoking, and their rigorous and helpful core curriculum is what makes it a good place to attend. Although they don't focus their attention as much on the commuter students including me, I can tell that they are making some sort of effort.

    Fairfield University is a great university, with a good selection of majors, with faculty that's a hit-or-miss, and an administration that is hard to get along with. The students there are overall friendly, but just like anywhere, people do make their cliques. Overall, you will get a good education that everyone will admire for years to come.
