Whether you give it your all on the field or in the stands, whether you're running, swimming, playing, or cheering, you're a Stag. You're part of the hundreds at Fairfield who either take part in athletics on the varsity or intramural/club level, or even more who go to the hundreds of games every year.
The sound of a starter’s pistol on a bright, fall day in 1948 not only started a cross country race but also began a journey. For 70 years, Fairfield Athletics has provided young men and women the opportunity to fully live their Jesuit education. Our Athletics programs continue to grow and excel, and yet we know we have further to go. A successful athletics program serves as a powerful source of pride for alumni and current students, binding generations together. They are also a significant factor in enrollment — young men and women with many choices want to be part of an institution that excels and they enjoy being part of a winning tradition. At Fairfield, our goals for the future include raising our stature as a Division 1A Athletics university, and we need you to reach that goal.
