Reunion 2016

Reunion Weekend is the perfect time to return to campus to reunite, reminisce and celebrate your Fairfield years with your classmates. We look forward to seeing you back on campus on June 10-12, 2016!

Reunion Weekend 2015 was a great success!

The class of 1965 celebrated their 50th Reunion during Commencement Weekend in May.  Attendees enjoyed a weekend filled with activities ranging from a tour of campus, to a conversation with professor emeritus Dr. Walter Petry, to lunch with the University President, a dinner dance, and the weekend concluded with their participation in Commencement!  It was a truly special weekend!

Three weeks following the 50th Reunion, gorgeous weather brought 1,500 alumni and their families back to campus for Reunion Weekend 2015. Golden Stags (classes of 1951-1964) and the Classes of 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2010 “recollected and reconnected.”

From the traditional Saturday morning Fun Run and campus tour with Fr. Allen, to the Taste of Fairfield, the 25th Reunion Class Toast, wedding vow renewals, and the infamous dinner dance under the tent—it was a weekend of remembering past times and making new memories.
