Fairfield Legacy Association

Did you know that 15% of Fairfield University graduates are members of a legacy family?

Fairfield University’s legacy families consist of students and alumni whose family members - including parents, grandparents, and/or siblings - attended or currently attend Fairfield. The University truly values our legacy families’ continued involvement and contributions and hosts a number of special programs to help legacy families stay in touch with Fairfield and one another.

Once a Stag, Always a Stag!

Thank you to all who attended our 4th annual Alumni & Family Weekend Legacy Reception!
