Class Ambassadors help shape the learning experience for students by raising critical funds for everything from scholarships and financial aid to innovative research programs and world class faculty.
Each class ambassador is responsible for providing leadership for the fundraising efforts of his or her class each year.

"I believe that the Fairfield experience does not end when you graduate on Bellarmine Lawn, but in fact is just beginning.
