I am in love with this school, butBrightPsychology
I am in love with this school, but I can also see why some people may not like it. It's not a total party school, but if you have a good group of friends, you wont find yourself bored on the weekends. The parties are either beach parties, (thrown by the seniors), Townhouses (Juniors) or, the appartments, (seniors). The people who attend the school are mostly easily approachable, and most of the time always friendly. But you will get some snobby kids in the mix, but you will honestly find that anywhere. Fairfield University gets the stereotype that it is a "white rich kid" school, which honestly isn't very true. A lot of the people who go there are on scholarship, or have taken out loans, but on the other hand yes, you do have some people who are there because they happen to be lucky enough where money isn't really a problem for them. The food is okay, It's not terrible but it's not great either. The campus is stunning, and the town of Fairfield is even more gorgeous and charming. Campus safety is good, but it's not really needed considering the location. The faculty are helpful, and because it is a small school, you really get that one on one connection, you are not just a number to them, you have a name and a face and they actually care about your success. I honestly had a great time here, and couldn't imagine myself attending any other university. If you find your crowd, you really wont find yourself bored ever.

This is a terrible school! If you're aBrightNursing
This is a terrible school! If you're a lazy slacker who comes from wealth, this school is for you. If you're someone with any ambition or passion for learning DO NOT COME HERE. Do not settle for Fairfield and be convinced to choose Fairfield over better schools (b/c of financial aid or friends)!THINK AGAIN. Shell out the extra cash to attend a proper university. I become angry just at the mere mention of Fairfield in conversation.
