Fairfield University, founded in 1942, is “a promising young institution short on tradition and diversity, but big on community, cross-disciplinary academics” and “educating the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.” This Jesuit institution is based in “an amazing little New England town an hour outside of New York City.” “It was everything I wanted in my school,” a happy biology student testifies. “Small class size, beautiful campus, approachable professors—it’s perfect.” The school has a strong “commitment to the Jesuit values,” a “friendly atmosphere,” and a small size that means you’ll “see so many familiar faces every day.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
