When students move into a dorm they expect to see many things: bunk beds, TVs and refrigerators. What they don’t expect to find is a professor living among them. Through a pilot program in Prichard Hall, this is exactly what residents have found, and as a result the whole campus is benefitting.
The annual Celebration of Student Scholarship will be held on the shared main campus of Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College from 9:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, in the Falcon Center third floor conference rooms.

English major and Michigan native Brad Riffee is creating a plan that could lead to the first rooftop gardens across the Fairmont State University campus.
For Riffee, who has family roots in West Virginia, a summer of high tech gardening was also a way of impacting his community. His inspiration came from Voltaire’s comic novel “Candide,” where the hero establishes a small farm on which he and his friends keep themselves from the three great evils: poverty, vice and boredom.
