Dear Graduate, 

I am thrilled to be among the first to offer you congratulations on your graduation from Fairmont State University.

Your diploma is a symbol of your dedication, hard work, and passion. I urge you to display it proudly, wherever life takes you. When you look at it, recall the sacrifices you made, the obstacles you overcame, and, most importantly, think fondly of the friends and mentors you met along the way.
This diploma is also a reminder that you are now and forever part of a supportive Fairmont State University community—not just the people here at the University, but also the vast network of Falcon alumni who have taken flight all over the globe. I urge you to participate actively in that community as they will provide support and fellowship throughout your life.
Finally, this diploma is a declaration of the profound and meaningful impact that Fairmont State and its alumni have in this region, this nation, and the world. Falcon graduates eagerly participate in their communities and bring their special brand of ‘roll-up-your-sleeves’ optimism to every opportunity.

As you make your way in the world after graduation, I hope you achieve success beyond your wildest imagination. Not only has your hard work earned you those victories, but also, the further you soar, the higher you carry the banner of Fairmont State University, and the wider our impact is felt.
