About Us

Dear Friends,


On behalf of Fairmont State University and the Fairmont State Alumni Association, it is my privilege to welcome you home. As an alumnus of FSU, I share and appreciate the connection you have to our alma mater and hope this web site will help you stay connected to all of the exciting things happening on our campus and beyond.

Our online community makes it easier than ever to register for upcoming events, update your alumni record, make a gift, and access our first-ever comprehensive online alumni directory.

Anytime throughout the year, you are invited to stop in and visit the Erickson Alumni Center, located at the “bottom of the hill” on Locust Avenue. I hope you will pay us a visit next time you are on campus!

Thank you for your continued support of Fairmont State University, its students and the more than 29,000 alumni who join you as proud Falcons.
