Alumni & Family Weekend

October 15 – 17, 2021

Alumni & Family Weekend

This year’s annual Alumni & Family Weekend will take place October 15 – 17.

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. It is an excellent opportunity for family members to check in with their students and explore both the Fairfield University campus and the town of Fairfield. We welcome all recent and past alumni to reconnect with the University community and learn more about the amazing improvements that are taking place all over campus. Some of the weekend highlights will include StagFest Food Truck Festival, Athletic events, sessions with student services, Glee Club Concert, The Great DuBois Circus Show, family brunch, and family masses. Check back in late August for more details.

We anticipate welcoming alumni and families to campus for this weekend, however, Covid-19 conditions could change this at any time. Ensuring the health and safety of the Fairfield community, as well as our Fairfield families, is paramount. Any in-person visitors will be expected to adhere to campus Covid-19 policies for their safety and the safety of the Fairfield community.

Come see for yourself. Reconnect. Enjoy. Network. Experience Fairfield traditions and the campus transformations. Don't miss this year's Alumni & Family Weekend.
