School breaks ground on Student Life Center


Fairfield University President Fr. Jeffrey von Arx, Fairfield Prep President Rev. John Hanwell and Board of Governors Chairman Dr. Bob Russo help break ground on Fairfield Prep’s new Student Life Center.

Fairfield Prep celebrated the groundbreaking and blessing of a new Student Life Center in Pelletier Quad on June 18.

Guests included Fairfield University President Fr. Jeffrey von Arx, members of Prep’s Board of Governors, administrators and staff and members of the Fairfield Jesuit community.

“Today is a great moment in the history of Fairfield Prep,” said Fr. John Hanwell, Fairfield Prep president. “The Prep community breaks ground together for our new Student Life Center as we believe so heartily in our great mission that our students are our future and that their future is our responsibility.”

The center will serve as a crossroads for important campus activities. This state-of-the-art, technology-enriched, multi-purpose facility will feature a number of specialized, but functionally related spaces. The center will foster a synergy between the academic and co-curricular lives of the school by providing students the opportunity to meet, interact, explore and cultivate their interests outside of the classroom.

The facility will include an enhanced dining area to accommodate 500 students and other school sponsored functions, an assembly area for formal and informal meetings and office space to support various student-based programs.

The project is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2015.
