Ace of Base. New Kids on the Block. Savage Garden. Ahum... Hanson. Admit it, you loved them too. I can recall countless sleepovers accompanied by these albums, several New Kids on the Block sleeping bags, hot pink lipstick and hairbrushes (which were used to lip sync to "You got it - The Right Stuff" and "Don't Turn Around," of course).
by Sean Corbett and Kelly Sheehan Fairfield graduate Tara Cushman '05 came back to her alma mater last Thursday to catch what she says is "the best show you'll see at a college." Guster is a popular east-coast band dating back to 1992, when its members went to Tufts University in Boston.
Men's soccer kicks off MAAC Tourney Not even a challenging schedule could keep the Fairfield men's soccer team from reaching post-season play, as they head to the MAAC tournament in Orlando, Fla. as the second seeded team. The Stags, who finished the season with a 7-7-2 overall record, including a 6-3 conference record, played a number of nationally-ranked teams during their 2003 campaign, including a tough loss against No.
In many cases, the loss of a team's two leading scorers hampers any chance of success for the remainder of the season. For the Fairfield University men's basketball team, however, the loss has largely been overcome, as the Stags have earned a third-place seed in the upcoming Metro-Atlantic Athletic conference tournament.
Freshmen aren't meant to have great impact during their first season, and they usually aren't looked upon to lead a team to victory. Yet after the Fairfield men's lacrosse team upset No.19 Penn State 10-6 on Saturday, it was a freshman the Stags all ran towards to congratulate.
by Kelly Sheehan With rumors of unregistered townhouse parties being broken up with Stag Card readers purchased this year, students have been nervous about throwing and attending parties on campus. But residence life says the department is no longer using the two $189 machines at unregistered townhouse parties that appear to be in violation of party policies or the student code of conduct.
by Kelly Sheehan Printing a 20-page paper by mistake: $2. Debunking a bed to avoid an uncomfortable roommate situation: $30. Replacing a townhouse couch which sounds like a diaper when you sit on it: $1000. Wondering about these university fines, and where your money goes: useless.
by Bill McBain In an effort to forge ties with the student body, and keep an open dialogue with the Fairfield community, University President Rev. Jeffrey von Arx S.J. took part in a "town forum" presented by FUSA Tuesday night. The event was broken into two parts: prepared questions by FUSA President Paul Duffy, and, later, questions from the crowd.
by Kelly Sheehan America's public and private colleges recently dropped from a "D" to an "F" for affordability on the biennial report card issued by the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, a nonprofit organization. However, Judy Dobai, associate vice president for enrollment management, said that Fairfield's financial aid office makes the most of the money available and tries to help students as much as possible through work study positions, federal loans and grants, state programs and university grant aid.
Before arriving on Fairfield's campus, tripled freshman Annie Sikora thought adjusting to a new town, school and roommate would be hard enough. Now she has the added difficulty of being in a forced triple, dealing with two new roomates and a very crowded room.
