Fairfield University - Comments and Student Experiences |
Since day one, maybe even before day one, I did not like Fairfield. The people were actually pretty horrible to me. I went through four to five groups of friends within the first three weeks and could not find a group to fit in with. But even during orientation I could not get along with anyone and they all seemed so stuck up and disinterested in each other. If I knew people beforehand or was able to find some friends, I would have stayed at Fairfield. But everyone I came in contact with was an asshole. The difference between the people at my new school and Fairfield was significant, seeing that I made friends just visiting and going to transfer orientation.
The campus is beautiful for the first few months, after that its ravaged by sand and plows. Everything is in walking distance. I ran to the beach a few times, which is beautiful. The beach houses are ok, but partying is basically the same stuff as high school.
Academically it was great. I enjoyed all of my professors. I hated taking languages though, I despised it in high school, and taking two more years it caused me to have a little bit of prejudice towards the academics at first. But, taking it from one of my professors, Fairfield has an insane amount of adjuncts, which for the amount of money you pay is NOT WORTH IT. and there are various departments that are weak with bad professors ie physics, comp sci, engineering from what i heard, etc.. I formed lasting ties with my professors and one of them actually wrote a letter of recommendation for me for transfer.
The food is horrible and gets pretty bland and the dining hall resembles a step above a high school cafeteria. The same healthy stuff is served while different unhealthy stuff is served.
The extracurriculars kind of suck at Fairfield, and the gym is pretty bad too. Filled with finance majors. ANd everyone in the business school is a jerk because its the easiest major there that promises the most money, and does not take any effort to get into. And it is ridiculously shocking how stupid the people are here. People think it is a really prestigious school, but it has a 70 percent acceptance rate. The people here looked at me weird when i asked questions in class.
If you find your niche at Fairfield, good luck. Other than that it is just like high school again as a result of the small campus, four buildings with classes, and crappy people that bicker like idiots during lunch and scream in the hallway at four in the morning on a Friday.m
