From interviews to regional receptions, FaVoR offers numerous ways to get involved and share your knowledge and experience with prospective students in your community. Better yet, the program helps to keep you connected with your alma mater! Whatever activity you choose, training materials will be provided by the Office of Admission.
Alumni Relations offers many opportunities to mentor students and alumni. Join Fairfield Alumni Network (FAN) and become a career advisor. You'll help fellow alumni and current students by responding to their career and industry questions.
Pay it forward! Be a career mentor to a junior year student by hosting them for a day or lunch during Job Shadow week over winter break. For more information, contact Julie Tuozzoli '85, director of Alumni Career Services.
Give back to a current student by volunteering at one of our various alumni-student networking events held throughout the year on campus. These events, sponsored by the Student Alumni Association, Friends of Fairfield Athletics Groups, and Career Planning, are the perfect way for you to reconnect with your alma mater, provide great career advice, and make a lasting impression on a current STAG. For more information, contact SAA Advisor Colleen McGinn, director of Young Alumni & Student Engagement.
Fairfield University Friends of Athletics is a volunteer organization, supported by the University, whose objective is to secure a place for Fairfield Athletics programs among the nation's finest, academically and athletically. Friends of Athletics seeks to grow our fan base through communications, events, mentoring and career networking, and by building a sense of tradition and community. To get involved and be a part of this tradition, visit our website.
Through your volunteerism, you can help promote excellence in coaching, recruiting and academic performance to enhance each student-athlete's competitive experience. You will also be able to meet or re-connect with student-athletes, coaches, university administrators and staff, alumni, parents, friends and fans of the Fairfield University community and family!
Our parents and families are an integral part of the University community and we encourage their involvement.
The Parents' Committee is a group of current and former parents who work with the University to engage other parents in a variety of projects; such as regional parent gatherings, welcome calls to freshman parents, attendance at University events, and contacting parents in support of The Parents' Fund.
