Homecoming 2014

Fairmont State University Homecoming 2014: Falcon Impact

Each day, our Fairmont State alumni, students, faculty and staff make an impact in their community.
They work as nurses, police officers, architects, and teachers. They volunteer at food pantries, domestic violence shelters, community development organizations, and children’s clubs. This year’s Homecoming is about celebrating and recognizing those who make a difference without fanfare or expectation of reward. They act because it is important and they recognize the value in impacting their community.

Selfies in Service

Want to show us your impact? In the months leading up to Homecoming, we will celebrate the impact our alumni, students, faculty and staff made through our “Selfies in Service” initiative. Upload photos of you volunteering or on the job to our gallery below, or via Twitter and Facebook using #SelfiesinService.  We will share your photos on social media leading up to Homecoming and select photos will be showcased on the scoreboard during FSU’s Homecoming football game.

I just want to take a minute to say thank you to Jake Nelson for giving me this awesome opportunity! Me and my sisters, regardless of who we are representing, always show the best side of ourselves.
