Visit the Fairfield 75th Anniversary Timeline

Time flies — Fairfield’s turning 75! It was on March 17, 1942 when the Rev. John J. McEleney, S.J., and six Jesuit brothers officially met to create an institutional entity for both high school and college-level education. This marked the beginning of Fairfield University.

To celebrate this important milestone, Fairfield has planned a series of commemorative activities, including the creation of an online timeline, which highlights the major events in the University’s history from 1942 through 2017.

Take a trip back in time to see how the University’s past has led us to the present — and how it will shape our future.

View all of Fairfield’s momentous highlights from the early days through today at fairfield.edu/75.
