I was really excited to attend Fairfield, itBright
I was really excited to attend Fairfield, it was my top choice school and was looking forward to going all summer. Unfortunately, Fairfield fell very short of my expectations. This school is VERY small and feels that way. After the first month, cliques are set in stone and it is very hard to get people to branch out of their groups. Because Fairfield lacks both big sports and Greek life, there isn't a lot to do. Fairfield is a beautiful school and I enjoyed the academics, but socially it is very dull and underwhelming. Fairfield is pretty much a high school.

Question
Entire school is filled with small minded arrogantQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Entire school is filled with small minded arrogant idiots. Had a classmate whose last name was irish yet always pretended that he was connected to the Italian mafia and could make one phone call and have any problem taken care of at a moment's notice. He said his best friend from high school wad a gang member but turned he never was. Most students watched the sopranos and pretended they were connected. A few students were capable of intellectual discourse but not many. The faculty seemed disingenuous and demoralised. It is a school for students whose family is rich or from an upper middle class background. Very little diversity and very few outlets for fun and community engagements. Not worth the money as of 2001. But maybe it changed.

Question
Fairfield University student just threw a racist "ghetto"Quite BrightBiology
Fairfield University student just threw a racist "ghetto" party. and when someone addressed how it was wrong on facebook, we see white/the majority of students being mockingly apologetic about what happened. Students commented "what is the big deal?" and other comments just showed how disrespectful white students on campus are and how they negatively view minorities on campus. i would suggest someone who wants to grow to be a good person NOT come here!https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2016/02/23/fairfield-university-in-connecticut-responds-to-students-ghetto-themed-party/
