Join Us for a 75th Birthday Celebration in Florida

Fairfield's turning 75 and we’re taking our birthday celebration on the road!

On March 17, 1942, the Rev. John J. McEleney, S.J., and six Jesuit brothers officially met to create an institutional entity for Fairfield College of St. Robert Bellarmine. This marked the beginning of Fairfield University. We take pride in our rich history of stellar academics, vibrant student activities, compassionate service to others and competitive athletics.

Celebrate with Us!

We’ll be kicking off a series of events to celebrate our 75 th birthday starting with receptions in Florida this February. If you live in Florida, or will be there on vacation, please join us!
