One day can make a big difference in a student’s career path! Fairfield’s Job Shadow program during winter break pairs students with alumni professionals across the Northeast and beyond for a day or half-day of rewarding career exploration. Students have the chance to sharpen their career focus, network with Fairfield alumni in a field they’re interested in, and enhance their confidence. Alumni and their organizations likewise have the opportunity to connect with Fairfield students and build awareness of the culture and opportunities available in their field.
FaVoR volunteers help by providing a personal perspective on the University and demonstrating the value of a Fairfield education. From interviews to regional receptions, the FaVoR program offers numerous ways to get involved and share your knowledge and experience with a prospective student in your community. Better yet, the program helps to keep you connected with your alma mater!
Each year, undergraduate and graduate students from other countries as well as new faculty join the Fairfield University family. Through the Adopt-a-Stag program, friends of the University help welcome these students and faculty ("Stags") into the Fairfield community.
