10 Reasons to Skip Class at Fairfield University

Need to skip a class to study for another class? Well, that’s one of the excuses. Here are 10 more reasons to skip classes at Fairfield University!

1. You need to rewatch the entire Game of Thrones series before Season 7 premieres.

Winter is here! Actually, this is something you can do while in class as well, just so you can say that you at least went.

2. Your hangover from the night before has taken over your day.

Let’s say it was caused by too much studying and not too much alcohol. It’s okay, you’ll never drink again after that hangover, right?

3. It’s a 4pm class or after.

Let’s face it- morning classes and evening classes are almost begging to be skipped.

4. There’s no IClickers involved.

While they may be the banes of our existence, IClickers do a good job of ensuring class attendance. No I Clicker? All lectures are now optional.

5. You need to spend this time working on stuff you didn’t finish.

School. Dance team. School. Research. School. Never Ending piles of shit to do.

6. You’ll fail anyway.

You might as well try to pass your other classes and cut your losses now. Should have trusted those BruinWalk reviews.

7. You’ll pass anyway.

You are the 1%- the 1% that can get away with not studying and have the Gods shine their luck upon them.

8. You need to sleep.

Remember? You can only have two of three things- sleep, social life, or good grades. This doesn’t mean that you will not exhaust yourself trying to achieve all three.

9. The walk.

Where are you going? The answer is always uphill. In the heat. With a heavy backpack. Screw that.

10. You don’t want to go.

College is about independence. This includes the ability to skip class without a single soul noticing.

Senior year: Barely graduates. 2.0 GPA. No prospects. Will mooch off parents.

Best and Worst Things About Your First Week at Fairfield University

The thrill you’ll get the second you set foot in your dorm room for the first time is an unforgettable feeling. The world (well, campus’s teensy-tiny corner of it) is yours, and it’s up to you to make the most of Week One. Those seven days are going to be jam-packed with adventure, but you’ll probably encounter a few things you’d rather not experience. Wondering what you should know in advance? Check out this best/worst breakdown.

Best

1. Finally living on your own

No parents! No siblings! No emptying the dishwasher or driving your cousin to soccer practice! Sure, having a roommate means you’re technically not living on your own. But this is the most freedom you’ve had thus far.

2. The open doors

Throughout the first week in your residence hall, you’ll likely find more doors open than shut. Everyone’s so eager to put themselves out there that they sacrifice privacy for the sake of potential friendship. Because there’ll be plenty of time for locks once the semester starts, you should take advantage of your door prop. You never know who you might meet!

3. Decorating your dorm room

Your walls are like four blank—no, bland—canvases, which means you get to spruce them up however you please. Photo collages? Perfect! String lights? Heck yes! This is your chance to truly own the space you’ve been given—no interior design skills required.

4. The parties

All those floormates who follow the open-door policy will be equally eager to throw down. Shocking, right? Get ready for zero dull moments and about a million stories you’ll end up retelling to anyone and everyone you meet over the next four years.

5. Free stuff!

Week One is the time for freebies. So. Many. Freebies. From neon t-shirts to beach balls and lanyards, you’ll find enough school swag to build a second wardrobe. If you’re hungry, there may even be free pizza! Snag as much as your arms can carry.

Worst

1. Unpacking

Decorating can (and should!) be fun, but it’ll require a lot of unpacking that, if you’re like me, you’d rather not do during Week One. If you haven’t already started packing, take this as your warning to pack wisely. Doing so will save you from shattering ceramic mugs and struggling with mismatched socks.

2. Sleep? Good luck.

The dorm room parties will last all night, every night, and your super-thin mattress is going to take some getting used to, so I repeat: good luck. Try to appreciate the restless week for what it is. If you just can’t take the tiredness, though, pick up a pair of earplugs and nap during periods of downtime.

3. Getting lost

You won’t automatically know your way around campus. Unfortunately, finding it means you’ll have to lose track of where you are and wander aimlessly for a bit. Don’t be afraid to ask for help! There are plenty of upperclassmen and faculty members willing to guide you.

4. Homesickness

Whether you’re far from home or just a quick drive away, you’re going to miss your bed. And your bathroom. And your parents’ stocked fridge. Though tough to conquer, your homesickness can and will get better with time. Consider it your motivation to immerse yourself in clubs, classes, and other campus activities.

5. Pre-college nerves

This is it, the moment you’ve been waiting for since you got your acceptance letter! However, it also means college is officially happening. You’ll be nervous. You’ll have some dreams in which you sleep through an exam or lose your keys. You may wake up in a cold sweat, but hey—don’t sweat it. Everyone’s jittery during Week One.

7 Types of Boys You Might Meet at Fairfield University

1. The 1st Week Fling

He is everything you have imagined in a University boy, maybe even more! Funny, great to dance with, AND confident. Or is he TOO confident? The answer will be clear after the 1st week.

2. Your Floor Fellow

Maybe you have a secret crush on your floor fellow. He’s older, wiser, and nicer than the boys from home. The crush will end as a crush though. BUT there is a chance he will become your strongest ally when you are in trouble with life at UCLA! And maybe someday you would want to be him to other younger Bruins.

3. The Boys Next Door

Whether you’re in Rez or any other type of housing, you will establish a some sort of relationship with him. Like it or not, he will be someone you can’t avoid. AND plus, if you are in Upper Rez, he will be the guy who knows all about your “personal life” and your music taste. 

4. Business Boys

All suited up for school? YES PLEASE! You will never meet another group of people as motivated and well-dressed in the entire campus. 

5. The Frat Star

You might not be able to identify them during day time. But during night, they are fun, extreme, and SUPER ENERGETIC! No wonder you spot lots of your leaders in Frats. 

6. Gym Enthusiasts

Yeah, pretty common on Campus. With so many varsity and intramural sports to choose from, you can spot them at the gym. Usually sweating and way too focused on their sport or bod.

7. Your Guy Friend

Probably the craziest out of all of them. There’s always a crazy drunk story following you and him. AND That’s why you keep him around!

The Best and Worst Things About Living in a Dorm at Fairfield

Dorm living is essential to having the complete Fairfield experience. Where else will you learn important life lessons, like surviving on less than 5 hours of sleep or sneaking your whole squad into your tiny room to pregame without being caught by your RA?

Best

1. The Freedom of Living on Your Own

No parents! No curfew! No rules! Going to college and moving into a dorm room at Fairfield provides you with the opportunity to be free and live independently. If you want to wake up at noon every day and eat ice cream for all of your meals, no one is going to stop you.

2. There Are People to Hang Out With 24/7

When you live in a dorm at Fairfield you are constantly surrounded by other students. Whenever you’re feeling bored or lonely you can simply walk next door and chill with your friends. The people on your floor will become your new family and will share the struggle of dorm living together.

3. You Don’t Have to Clean the Bathrooms

Everyone at Fairfield loves to live independently, but no one wants to do chores. Luckily, there are janitors in residence halls that clean all of the bathrooms and den areas for you! And believe me, when you see a wad of hair on the shower walls, you’ll thank god for them.

4. You Can Eat All You Want at a Dining Hall

Living in a dorm most likely means that you’ll have access to a meal plan/dining hall. This perk is super convenient when you feel to lazy to make food (which is always). And c’mon, where else can you order pizza, ice cream, and breakfast food all in one place?

5. There’s Always a Party

No plans on a Friday night? Doesn’t matter! When you live in a dorm, there’s most likely a party happening in every room. Just knock on any door, and you’re likely to find a game of beer pong or people taking shots. And, you’re more than welcome to join in.

6. There Are Lounges Where You Can Chill/Study

If you’re like me, then trying to study in your room turns into hours of procrastination. If you don’t want to trek all the way to the library, there are tons of lounges and study areas available to you when you live in a dorm. Or, they can be places to chat and gossip with your friends next door. Because hey, procrastination is inevitable.

7. There Are Always Activities

One of the most unnoticed benefits of dorm living are all of the activities that the RA’s plan. I have gone on countless floor dinners to Buffalo Wild Wings, played Jeopardy and Family Feud against my hall mates, and even gone on excursions to movies and sporting events. In the dorms, there’s always something going on.

Worst

1. Waiting For the Elevator

You’re obviously not going to take the stairs when you live on floor 8, so waiting for the elevator is the only way to go. And seriously, it’s a pain. Especially when someone is lazy and takes the elevator to floor 2. Not cool.

2. So. Much. Noise.

It’s fun to always have parties going on…until all you want to do is have a quiet night in. Then, it can get pretty annoying when you hear dubstep music blasting from the room across from you. The crazy social life that comes with dorm living can be both a blessing and a curse.

3. It’s Hard to Get Along With Everyone

You’ll probably become friends with a lot of people on your floor, but chances are there will be a couple people living near you who you won’t like. Living in a dorm, unfortunately, means that you’ll have to see their face every single day. Basically, there is no escape.

4. Communal Showers

Communal showers are by far the most uncomfortable part of dorm living. There’s nothing like seeing hair on the bathroom walls, having horrible water pressure, and walking past your floor mates in only a towel to put a damp start to your day.

5. Dealing With Everyone’s Gross Habits

You never realize how gross people can be until they are living just footsteps away. Everybody has a disgusting habit, and when you live in a dorm you have to deal with everyone’s quirks. Hopefully your roommate isn’t the worst one.

6. Getting Sick of Dining Hall Food

Pasta again? Having access to a dining hall is great…until you get sick of all of the food after the first semester. It may be convenient, but it also puts you on a direct path to the Freshman 15.

7. RA’s

You may think you’ll have no adult supervision in college…until you meet your RA. They will bust your parties, write you up for drinking, and sometimes get you in trouble for no reason. Just try to stay on their good side.

Whether your year in a dorm is the best or worst experience of your life, it’s a part of college. You’ll look back at dorm life and be thankful for the janitors and meal plans. Try to embrace it while you can.
