Exploration Days

Academic Exploration Days


The Office of Recruitment invites you and your family to explore your options at Fairmont State University. On select days throughout the regular semester, academic-based Exploration Days will be held on the main campus. Exploration Days are an excellent opportunity for families to visit and experience our campus in full-swing.

Students and their family members will attend an admissions presentation  and will enjoy exploring majors. The highlight of Exploration Days is the departmental visit. The departmental visit includes an opportunity for families to meet in small groups with faculty and/or academic deans. Spending time in the academic department a student is most interested in is a significant value and will aid the student greatly in decision-making. We are also excited to offer campus and residence hall tours to those who are interested. In addition, families will be welcome to visit Enrollment Services offices (such as Admissions, Financial Aid, and Housing) as needed before departing.

Families will need to park in the lower levels of the Parking Garage and walk to the Turley Student Services Center and take the elevator to the 1st Floor.

Please review and choose the Exploration Day that best fits your area of interest.
