While a college education is undeniably a valuable investment, paying for college can be challenging for most families. Fairmont State University, which delivers high quality academic programs at an affordable cost, continues to meet students' needs for financial aid and to provide a unique learning environment close to home in North Central West Virginia.
A long-standing tradition at Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College, Welcome Weekend is designed to provide incoming freshmen with the information they need to start their college experience moving in the right direction. Leading that charge is the team of more than 70 Freshman Counselors who today, Aug. 16, prepare to welcome hundreds of new students and their families as they begin their college journey.
