The anchor for Fairmont's Art Series, this event brings people to the heart of historic downtown Fairmont. The Alumni Association is proud to be a sponsor of this event that is quickly becoming the district's "see and be seen" event. First Fridays promote a sense of community, celebrate local artisans, showcase musicians and provide a platform for safe, family-friendly fun.

The Fairmont State Alumni Association is heading to Shepherdstown on September 13th to see the Fighting Falcons take on the Rams! Join us for a pre-game tailgate and hang out with your Falcon family.

Homecoming 2014 Set for October 23-25!

Each day, our Fairmont State alumni, students, faculty and staff make an impact in their community. They work as nurses, police officers, architects, and teachers. They volunteer at food pantries, domestic violence shelters, community development organizations, and children’s clubs. This year’s Homecoming is about celebrating and recognizing those who make a difference without fanfare or expectation of reward. They act because it is important and they recognize the value in impacting their community.

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.
