Stag Spirit Shop – The Barone Campus Center Bookstore is expanding to include a convenience store known as “Stags on the Run”. Similar to a 7-eleven, the new store will give students greater access to basic necessities such as paper towels, fast snacks and beauty items without the need to go downtown. The addition is expected to open at the end of the summer with hours ranging from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays, and more limited hours on Saturdays and Sundays.
Campus Ministry – This fall, students will see a new face around the campus chapel. Rev. Mark Scalese, S.J. is assuming the position of director of campus ministry as Rev. George E Collins, S.J. left Fairfield in the spring to take on the position as president of Cheverus High School in Portland, Maine. Scalese is looking forward to making campus ministry more recognizable on campus through events and partnerships with other student organizations on campus. Previously, Scalese served as an associate professor at Fairfield in the film, television and media arts department on campus, and has been a part of Fairfield’s community for over 10 years.
Leslie C. Quick Jr. Recreation Complex – Come Fall 2016, Fairfield students will be able to experience the renovated RecPlex that will house weightlifting and cardio equipment, multipurpose rooms and an indoor track. The hope is to create a more accessible and flexible environment for all students workout needs. During the time of renovation, the RecPlex will be closed and athletic equipment for students will be housed in Alumni Hall.
