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 new students, 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. Finally, the incoming class will receive their class gift. The ceremony will take place on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at 5 p.m. on the Bellarmine Lawn. The rain location is the Recreational Complex Field House.
