First-Year Academic Gathering
The First-Year Academic Gathering traditionally marks the start of the academic year commemorated by a coming together of the Fairfield University community. In addition to welcoming the new class, it is a time set aside for the community as a whole to reflect on not only academic pursuits but also the larger mission and values of the institution.
Commencement is an important ending and an exciting new beginning. The commencement website contains information and resources for both undergraduate and graduate ceremonies.
