Congratulations on your admission to Fairfield University! We are so excited to welcome you to our campus community.
The Office of Undergraduate Admission and the entire Fairfield University community invite you and your family to join us for one of our two upcoming Fairfield in Focus: Admitted Student Visit Days on Saturday, April 6, 2019 and Sunday, April 14, 2019.
We have planned this special day for you and your family to visit our beautiful campus and experience all of the services, amenities, and academic opportunities that Fairfield has to offer. The day will start with an 8 a.m. registration and 9:15 a.m. welcome, followed by a variety sessions for you and your family to interact with faculty, staff, and current students; discover the many ways to get involved on campus; and learn about the resources available to you as a Stag during the next four years.
Whether this is your first visit to Fairfield or your fifth, you can organize the day around your interests and preferences.

Shadow a Stag
Experience academic and student life here on campus. You will be paired with a current student who will take you to class, introduce you to members of the Fairfield community, show you his or her favorite on-campus locations, answer your questions and eat lunch with you in the Tully Dining Hall.
Multicultural Visit Program
Embracing diversity has always been a distinguishing hallmark of Jesuit education. The tradition continues in Fairfield’s commitment to build a community of learners from a diversity of social, economic, racial, cultural, national, and religious backgrounds. As a potential Fairfield student, we not only encourage you to embrace your uniqueness but to also learn about the many ways in which Fairfield celebrates the inclusive excellence of its community.
The Multicultural Visit Program (MVP) provides experiences that allow you to meet, learn, and engage with the many forms of diversity at Fairfield. We invite you to attend one of our three MVP Experiences to learn more about becoming a part of the rich, diverse culture at Fairfield.
