50th Reunion Fairfield Journeys

It's not too late to consider writing a short narrative of your “journey” since graduation. These will live here on your Class's personal webpage for you to continue to reflect upon. Even if you did not attend your Reunion, we encourage you to submit an entry. Previous 50th Reunion classes have found these memories to be inspiring, and have appreciated the chance to reconnect with classmates and hear about their lives after graduation. 

Your story can highlight a wide range of things – from your professional career to your family, hobbies and personal life. You may submit your entry in the following ways:

  • Online by filling out our online form at www.fairfield.edu/50thmemory
  • E-mail it to reunions@fairfield.edu (Be sure to include the following: Your "Post-Grad" Journey, Your Favorite Fairfield Memory, and any Legacy Family Ties you have to Fairfield)

Read what some of your classmates have already shared! Additional journeys will be added as they are submitted!
