Welcome Week

August 1-8, 2021

What is Welcome Week (WW)?

WW is the first major program students will experience at Fairmont State and is designed for all new students living on and off campus or transferring to Fairmont State. WW includes a variety of events to help you become acclimated to campus, succeed academically, and meet your fellow students. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of events, from Convocation to Paint Nights, service opportunities, and more!

Why Should Students Participate in Welcome Week? 

Coming to college is a transition, and you will need some time and help to adjust. We know that students who attend WW are more confident when they start classes because they have had time to meet friends, know the expectations regarding academics, toured the campus, and have the campus resources needed to feel settled. There will be some required components to ensure students get the information they need.


  • What should I expect at WW?
    1. You will meet new students, faculty, and interact with student clubs and organizations.
    2. You’ll go more in-depth with your Academic major and meet the faculty that you'll soon be seeing in the classroom.
    3. We will fill you in on the many services available on campus that can help you succeed.
  • Who can participate in WW?
    1. WW is open to ALL Fairmont State students
  • What is the cost of WW?
    1. Participation is FREE! Plus, you'll probably walk away with some cool stuff as well!
