For the first time, Fairmont State University alumni, Fighting Falcons fans, employees and students who reside in West Virginia now have an opportunity to pre-order an FSU special license plate. Preliminary interest applications are now being accepted.

Ordering a special license plate is a way to show alumni and community pride and support for Fairmont State University. FSU must obtain at least 250 preliminary interest applications by Jan. 30, 2016, so that the Division of Motor Vehicles may begin the design and production of the license plate.

Join the Fairmont State University online community by updating your record.  You'll receive invitations to special events and notification of Maroon & White updates.  Get connected and stay connected!

The first edition of The Mound yearbook was published in 1908 by the senior class of Fairmont State Normal School.

At that time, the school was located on Fairmont Avenue. Student organizations included religious, literary and academic societies. Tuition was free.

Now, you can view copies of The Mound yearbook online.  Find photos and memories of friends or family that have attended Fairmont State.

In celebration of Fairmont State University’s Sesquicentennial, the Frank and Jane Gabor West Virginia Folklife Center has created an exhibit titled “On a Hill by a Dream,” which features FSU history, traditions and lore.

The title for the exhibition was taken from a poem by Louise McNeill, West Virginia’s former Poet Laureate who taught history at Fairmont State. The following quote is from her “Chestnut Orchard” (“Paradox Hill: From Appalachia to Lunar Shore”):

On a hill—by a dream—we will find that place.”
