Although I have made some close friends here,Quite BrightOther
Although I have made some close friends here, I would warn anyone considering this school that a large portion of the student body is immature. Many students here are only accepting of likeminded individuals, and perpetuate the stereotype of preppy kids who peaked in high school.

People approach the weekends like they're trying to emulate American Pie. You'll also quickly grow sick of the hawaiian shirt frat boys and their female counterparts who think it's socially acceptable to echo their voices through the thin walls of your freshman dorm at 3 AM. I see students spend the entire semester scrolling through Facebook or shopping for clothes, then have the audacity to blame their professors for failing to teach the material well. If it weren't for the social culture here, I'd say Fairfield is a good choice in terms of accommodations and academic opportunities. You just have to look past a bunch of conceited and childish personalities.

Honestly hate this school.Quite BrightPsychology
Honestly hate this school. If you don't find the typical "preppy" mold you will not enjoy it here. The students are extremely judgmental and cold. Basically this is a big high school. There are many cliques and so much drama around campus. For having almost no party scene, the students try to act like its the biggest party school in the North, when barely anyone knows about this school. The campus really isn't that nice either, the freshman dorms suck but the upperclassmen housing is much nicer. DO NOT APPLY HERE
