Class of 1970 Reunion Update

50th Reunion Fairfield Journeys

We are still looking for members of the Class of 1970 to share their journeys of their life after Fairfield!

A collection of these reflections will be compiled and live on your Class's personal webpage after you become "Golden Stags." Even if you cannot 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. We need as many entries as possible to make this project a success, and will continue to remind you to participate!

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:
