On Sunday, April 22, the Fairmont State University School of Fine Arts held its annualAwards Ceremony to honor students and their accomplishments. Attending the event were students, their families, alumni and faculty and staff of the School of Fine Arts.
“The strong scholarship support that the School of Fine Arts receives from the Fairmont State Foundation allows us to attract talented, well-prepared students to our programs. The enrollment of those students raises the bar for all our students, a kind of ‘trickle up’ effect, which is very welcome,” said Peter Lach, Dean of the School of Fine Arts.
Fairmont State University’s outstanding faculty members were honored during the Recognition of Faculty Achievement ceremony for their exemplary efforts throughout the 2011-2012 academic year.
“Fairmont State truly is set apart by this tremendous faculty. While we can tout an excellent faculty-to-student ratio, as compared to larger institutions, that statistic only becomes meaningful when we consider the quality of our faculty,” said FSU President Maria Rose.

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.
