50th Reunion Fairfield Journeys

A lot has happened since your time at Fairfield - and we want to hear about it! 

Please consider writing a short narrative of your “journey” since graduation. 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:

• Online by filling out our online form via the button below
• E-mail it to reunions@fairfield.edu 
• Mail your submission (with the above questions/answers) to Fairfield University,
Attn: Colleen McGinn, 1073 No. Benson Road, Fairfield, CT 06824
• Call Colleen at (203) 254-4280 with any questions.

Beginning on the plaza of Egan Chapel, this mile-long prayer and meditation trail was designed to cultivate prayerful discernment and an awareness of God’s presence around us.

The Examen is a contemplative prayer practice made popular by St. Ignatius of Loyola that invites us to see God in our everyday lives. There are five steps to the Walking Examen identified by five large rocks with a plaque. Each step signifies the five movements of the Examen prayer: Thanksgiving, Illumination, Examination, Contrition, and Hope. View the Map.

As we prepare to celebrate the 50th Reunion of the Class of 1974, we remember in a special way the members of our class who have gone before us...

Eternal rest grant to them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May these and all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.

All gifts made during your Reunion's fiscal year (July 1, 2023 until June 30, 2024), will count towards your class's goal/your Reunion gift. 

Additionally, many alumni celebrating their 50th have commemorated this milestone by considering gifts through their estate plan, whether through retirement assets, real estate and other non-cash assets, gifts that pay you income, and more. To find out more, please contact Emma Penick, MBA, AEP®, CAP®, Senior Director of Planned Giving at epenick@fairfield.edu or by calling 203-254-4020.
