Fairmont State’s Feaster Center was filled with anticipation and excitement Friday afternoon when hundreds of new students gathered to officially mark the beginning of their journeys as members of the Falcon Family at the University’s annual Convocation Ceremony.
“You have started this journey together, and you will finish this journey together,” said Fairmont State University President, Mirta M. Martin, to those in attendance.
Fairmont State University and the Tygart Valley United Way have partnered to host the Fairmont State Day of Action on Sunday, August 8. All students, employees and alumni are encouraged to participate in various service projects both on and off-campus as part of the University’s Welcome Week.
Fairmont State University has extended its deadline for fall enrollment to Monday, August 9. Prospective students applying to the University through August 9 are eligible to receive grants or scholarships, register for classes and apply for financial aid and the University’s COVID-19 Supplemental Aid Program.
Fairmont State University will be hosting a series of Welcome Week events for students as they arrive on campus ahead of the start of the fall 2021 semester.
“Welcome Week will be the first program that students can experience at Fairmont State,” said Evan Fossen, Assistant Director of Student Life. “It’s a great chance to become familiar with campus and its resources, as well as meet faculty and make new friends.”
