It’s not every day royalty can be found on the campus of Fairmont State University. But since the fall semester began, Fairmont State has been home to its very own queen, Miss West Virginia United States, Katelyn Hollar.
Every month the Information Systems Management (ISM) Program, within the School of Business, conducts a knowledge sharing seminar centered around technology and the businesses it enables. The series is called "Technology @ Lunch." The purpose is to increase awareness, provoke critical thinking, and enhance our understanding of the latest trends in technology.
The Fairmont State Foundation board recently approved a $100,000 gift from the estate of Wendell Hardway to establish a student investment fund that will give students in the School of Business marketable skills they could use long after graduation.
And the gift is one that the school hopes will continue to give year after year.
The Fairmont State University School of Business honored students for their academic achievement at the Delta Mu Delta Induction Ceremony and Scholarship and Award Presentations at the end of the spring 2017 semester. Dr. Richard Harvey is Dean of the School of Business. Dr. Gina Fantasia and Dr. Rebecca Giorcelli are Associate Deans.
Six awards were presented to students for academic achievement:
Fairmont State University’s outstanding faculty members were recognized on Wednesday, April 19, during the Recognition of Faculty Achievement luncheon for their exemplary efforts throughout the 2016-2017 academic year.
The event was hosted by the Faculty Development Committee, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Fairmont State Foundation. Funding for the awards and grants is provided by the Office of Academic Affairs and the Fairmont State Foundation.
More than 400 students will participate in the 148th Commencement for Fairmont State University at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 13, in the Feaster Center.
Dr. Maria C. Rose, FSU President, will present special remarks for the ceremony, which will mark her last as president; she will retire when her contract ends on June 30. Julian Pecora of Clarksburg will be the student speaker representing the Class of 2017.
In collaboration with the Marion County Chamber of Commerce, Fairmont State University’s School of Business hosted a Business After Hours event on campus on March 8, providing a valuable networking opportunity for students.
