Welcome Weekend is the four-day fall orientation program designed for all new students living on and off campus or transferring in to Fairmont State. Welcome Weekend includes a variety of events to help you become acclimated to campus, succeed at Fairmont State and meet your fellow students. Students will have the opportunity to participate in a kick-off to your first year experience session, new class traditions, campus Belong-B-Q picnic, Fairmont City Tour and numerous interactive activities including ThinkFast Trivia gameshow, TRON Lasertag dome, and a GIANT Night of Fun.
Coming to college is a transition, and you will need some time to adjust. We know that students who attend Welcome Weekend are more confident when they start classes because they have had time to meet friends, know the expectations regarding academics, and have the campus resources needed to feel settled.
