A dedication ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 1, will celebrate the opening of the newly renovated Fairmont State University Turley Student Services Center on the main campus.
A college diploma can open up new career opportunities for working adults. Economic projections indicate that by 2018 more than 49 percent of jobs in the state will require education or training beyond high school, but only 26 percent of West Virginians have completed an associate or bachelor’s degree.
Fairmont State University is hosting an Open House for Adult Students on Aug. 1 for those considering finishing a degree started earlier in life or beginning a new degree.
This fall, new Fairmont State University students and those returning to campus will be able to find many of the support services they need to succeed in one convenient place – the Turley Student Services Center.
