Alumni & Family Weekend

This year’s annual Alumni & Family Weekend will take place October 21 – 23.

Come see for yourself. Reconnect. Enjoy. Network.

Alumni & Family Weekend is a Fairfield tradition that offers a variety of fun activities and special events for students, alumni, and families alike for one weekend every fall. Alumni will enjoy mini-reunions with friends and classmates, and get to see first-hand what’s new on campus. Parents and families will be on hand to see how their sons and daughters are doing after a couple of months away at college. Friends are sure to enjoy all Fairfield has to offer during this can’t-miss weekend.
