    Fairfield University is a small, tight-knit community with a big personality. One step on the campus will show you how proud the Fairfield Stags are to call this beautiful campus their home. Whether you are walking to class past the magnificent Bellarmine Hall, playing basketball in the gym, lounging on the grass in the Quad, or sitting in the Starbucks in the library, there is always that feeling of comfort coming from the outgoing student, the helpful teachers and the friendly workers who are along side you.

    I am a graduate student, and the program I am in (MFT) is really good. Starting with the interview process the faculty made you feel like family. The professors at the school help you to succeed, will work with you if you talk to them about having any concern in your classes. The campus is beautiful, very woodsy quiet vibe to it. They also provide a campus bus to take you around the small town it is located in, and will take you back to campus. Very helpful for students who have to commute.

    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.
