On Sunday, April 22, the Fairmont State University School of Fine Arts held its annualAwards Ceremony to honor students and their accomplishments. Attending the event were students, their families, alumni and faculty and staff of the School of Fine Arts.
“The strong scholarship support that the School of Fine Arts receives from the Fairmont State Foundation allows us to attract talented, well-prepared students to our programs. The enrollment of those students raises the bar for all our students, a kind of ‘trickle up’ effect, which is very welcome,” said Peter Lach, Dean of the School of Fine Arts.
Fairmont State University’s outstanding faculty members were honored during the Recognition of Faculty Achievement ceremony for their exemplary efforts throughout the 2011-2012 academic year.
“Fairmont State truly is set apart by this tremendous faculty. While we can tout an excellent faculty-to-student ratio, as compared to larger institutions, that statistic only becomes meaningful when we consider the quality of our faculty,” said FSU President Maria Rose.
Nine students from Fairmont State University will travel to New York from May 13-19, 2012, with Dr. Julie Sellers for the very first immersion-style experience within the borders of the United States that the university has offered.
