RECONNECT. ENJOY. NETWORK. It’s never been a better time to be Fairfield Alumni.

Alumni & Family Weekend (AFW) is a Fairfield tradition that offers a variety of fun activities and special events for students, alumni, and families alike, during one weekend each fall. The weekend is always filled with a variety of fun activities and events designed to entertain visitors of all ages.

Following StagFest, the University community is invited to join members of our varsity athletic teams, coaches, and administrators for the Stags Pep Rally as we officially kick of the 2018-19 athletic season!
