Fairmont State University will host hundreds of future Falcons and their families for Maroon and White Day, the University’s spring campus visitation day, on Saturday, April 6.
Held in the fall and the spring for students of all ages who are deciding where to continue their education and their families, Maroon and White Day is an opportunity for prospective students to check out Fairmont State and its more than 80 fields of study. To register for the event, visit www.fairmontstate.edu/mwday. For those who can’t attend the April 6 event, other visitation options are available at www.fairmontstate.edu/visit.
“We can’t wait to host students and families on our campus for Maroon & White Day,” said Brittany Stout, Director of Recruitment. “This is not only a great opportunity for students and their families to speak directly with faculty from our wide selection of academic programs, but also for students see what life is like on our campus, and what the residence halls and dining options are like. Students and their families can also meet with our financial aid staff to learn more about how affordable it can be to attend Fairmont State. If families haven’t done so yet, I encourage them to reserve their spot on our website today; it isn’t too late!”
The event begins with check-in at the first floor lobby of the Falcon Center as well as a Student Organization Fair in Gym 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Fairmont State President Mirta Martin and Brittany Stout will welcome students and their guests from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
From 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., visitors can explore majors at the Academic Fair, choose from informational interactive sessions, and take tours of campus and the residence halls. Sessions will provide information about admissions, financial aid, veterans affairs, and housing. Special sessions will also be offered on topics such as student life and the Honors program. Prospective students who want to participate in Admissions on the Spot will have their application fee waived. FAFSA completion assistance also will be available at the event. Those who attend will have the opportunity to meet faculty members and learn about academic programs at the Academic Fair from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. A complimentary lunch will be offered by Dining Services in the Falcon Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Martin said. “We transform students’ passion and hard work into excellence in a vibrant, close-knit campus community. We make this promise to students: If they bring a willingness and a determination to pursue their dreams, we will provide them with everything they need to achieve them.”
