"I enjoy the atmosphere that Fairmont State has to offer. It's a smaller campus, and it's easier to get to know people. There is a nice mix of traditional and non-traditional students, which makes the discussions in class rather interesting. On top of that, the instructors are genuinely invested in helping you complete your degree."
