Fairmont State is one of the few colleges in West Virginia to have an active ACDA Student Chapter. The ACDA is a non-profit professional organization of choral directors from schools, colleges, universities, communities, churches and professional choral groups. National membership currently numbers about 20,000 directors and choral organizations.

Membership in ACDA is open to any Fairmont State Student who participates actively in the Choral Music Program. It is strongly recommended that all vocal music education majors join the ACDA Chapter. Membership entitles the student to receive THE CHORAL JOURNAL, a monthly periodical which contains significant articles about all aspects of choral music from elementary school to professional adult choirs. Members are eligible to attend any state, division or national conference and convention, and are given opportunities to work on choral projects serving the college and community.
