Campus Lights Blue for World Autism Awareness Day

Wednesday, April 01, 2015

During the month of April, the lights on the main campus Fairmont State University turn blue as part of the national Light It Up Blue world autism awareness campaign sponsored by Autism Speaks. April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day.

The idea originated from FSU student Corey Cleavenger in 2012.

Campus Lights Turn Blue for Autism Awareness

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

During the month of April, Fairmont State University is maroon and white – and blue – because of one family’s effort to raise awareness about autism. Corey Cleavenger, a sophomore at FSU majoring in Biology/Chemistry, had a bright idea and approached the Physical Plant that maintains the shared main campus of FSU and Pierpont Community & Technical College.
