Fairfield Rising Campus Community Kick-Off Event
In great anticipation of the public launch of our capital campaign this September, Fairfield is having a campus community kick-off on Friday, August 28 at 4 p.m. to generate some excitement and celebrate our public launch.
During the event on August 28 Father von Arx, S.J. will share with the University community a bit about the campaign and upcoming on-and-off campus events. Over 300 student leaders are slated to attend the event thanks to the support from Fairfield’s Student Services team, and all faculty and staff are invited to share in the fun. The brief program will also include a student welcome, limited edition t-shirt giveaway, and the first-ever sneak peak of the new Lucas the Stag.
“This is a great time for Fairfield. We are building toward Fairfield’s 75th anniversary with great pride for the past and much anticipation for the future,” said Jenn Anderson ’97, MBA ’02, associate vice president of Marketing and Communications. “You won’t want to miss this event.”
Fairfield Rising is the most comprehensive fundraising effort in the institution’s history and is a call to action for all members of the University community to join together and ensure the unique Fairfield experience continues to enrich the lives and education of students today and for generations to come.
“This is a wonderful period to focus on strategic collaboration across departments, strengthen our engagement and build upon our great Fairfield Pride,” explained Wally Halas, vice president for University Advancement. “THIS IS OUR MOMENT to shine!”
The event will kick-off at 4 p.m. in the Campus Circle and will be followed by pizza at 4:30 p.m. One requirement: wear Fairfield red!
