The Fairfield community is invited to attend a "Last Call at Alumni Hall" farewell reception on Saturday, March 7 from 7 to 10 p.m. in Alumni Hall. Join this special celebration as Stags and friends say farewell to one of the longest standing buildings on Fairfield's campus. Remarks will be given by Fairfield University President, Mark R. Nemec, PhD, and by Rev. Charles H. Allen, S.J., University Chaplain and special assistant to the President, who will also lead a special prayer.
Constructed in 1959, Alumni Hall has been a landmark facility in Stag Country for more than 60 years – home to the University's three-time MAAC Champion men's and women's basketball teams, and the 11-time MAAC Champion volleyball team. The venue has also housed several concerts throughout the decades, with memorable performances by the Beach Boys, The Byrds, John Legend, and more. The upcoming "Last Call" event will provide guests an opportunity to spend time in the building and share stories about their own experiences in Alumni Hall, before construction begins for the planned new Arena & Convocation Center.
Join fellow Stags and friends as they say goodbye to this storied piece of Fairfield history and celebrate the vision for the future. The cost to attend the "Last Call at Alumni Hall" farewell reception is $25 per person, with a portion going to support the planned Arena & Convocation Center. There will be food, drinks, and music – and each guest will receive a vintage Fairfield shirt. Attendees are encouraged to show their Stag spirit by wearing red or Fairfield gear to the event.
Also on March 7, Fairfield Women's Basketball will play the last official game in Alumni Hall at 2 p.m on Senior Day. The Fairfield community is encouraged to double down on their love for Alumni Hall and their Stags by also attending the final game on the current George Bisacca Court, as the women take on Niagara University.
