Alumni, students, friends and family participated in two major cancer fighting events from Saturday, July 24- Sunday, July 25. On Saturday, a Fairfield University bike team, lead by Father Charles Allen, rode in the CT Challenge, tackling 25-50 miles and raising nearly $6,300 to help fight cancer. On Sunday, Stag swimmers and alumni participated in the St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation's SWIM Across the Sound and raised almost $4,000. In total, Fairfield U raised over $10,000 in the fight against cancer in one weekend. Go Stags!
The Water Focus is in full swing at Fairfield and well into its second semester of exploration both in and outside the classroom, with a full spectrum of classes and events that challenge and intrigue. With more than 70 percent of the earth’s surface covered by water, students, faculty, and staff, have had plenty of opportunities to explore the issue through practically every discipline across campus.
