Everyone has their favorite place in Stag Country. Did yours make the list? No matter where you decide to take graduation photos, be sure to pick a spot that tells your Stag story best. You worked hard for this moment—capture the photo that says “I did it!”

1.  The Stag Statue

Realistic bronze statue of Fairfield University's mascot, Lucas the Stag.

One of the most iconic emblems of Stag Country since its arrival to campus in 2009.

2.  North Benson Road Entrance

Fairfield University's headline stone signage at the campus entrance.

A traditional Fairfield University photo op spot!

Surround yourself by bright, billowing trees and pops of Fairfield University red as signature signage lines the paths.

4.  Bellarmine Pond

Lush campus pond with a water feature surrounded by foliage and greenery.

A location you’ll want to visit one last time—Tranquil, beautiful, and sure to make for a reflective shot.

5.  DiMenna-Nyselius Library

Stone architecture library building that sits at the edge of a manicured campus lawn.

An architecturally aesthetic backdrop and symbol of long days (and nights) of hard work!

6.  Bellarmine Hall

Stone mansion building with an open gateway and stone-paved entryway.

The pinnacle graduation photo for a Fairfield University Stag.

Where it all started—Pose in front of your first residence hall (this one will make mom and dad cry).

Nothing beats the feeling of being on your home field or cheering your favorite team on from the stands—be sure to capture one more moment here!

Reminiscent of some of your later Stag Country days–walks through The Village make for a gorgeous, uncommon shot.
