Being an Honors student at Fairmont State University grants you the ability to schedule with seniors, before all other underclassmen. Honors classes are smaller in size and are taught by only the most distinguished faculty. These classes give you a more personal relationship with your instructor as you learn of and discuss ideas and events.
The Honors Association gives students a forum to express opinions regarding future Honors classes, field trips, and other extracurricular activities. In addition to monthly meetings, a luncheon is held for the Honors Association once each semester.
Honors students have a computer lab equipped with five PC's, a scanner, and a printer. While used primarily for study, the Honors Lab also provides a space for students to get together between classes.
