Uncommon and remarkable lives have been the legacy of Fairmont State University for over 150 years. For decades, one such life had been forgotten to history but during this year’s Commencement, the Falcon Family celebrated the rediscovery of a pioneering Fairmont State president and the first female president of a state school in the history of the State of West Virginia and in the US—Margaret Elizabeth Dickey.
The Mon Health Medical Center Foundation is proud to present a two-year investment of $200,000 to expand Fairmont State University’s capacity for nursing education. Through this investment, Fairmont State University will be able to hire additional faculty that in turn will allow more students to be trained in the field of nursing.
More than 130 students will participate in the winter Commencement ceremony for Fairmont State University on Saturday, December 8, at 1 p.m. in the Feaster Center. This will be the first winter Commencement in five years.
The Falcon Family Christmas Tree Lighting was held on Thursday in the Falcon Center to bring together students, faculty, staff and the community to kick-off the holiday season.
President Dr. Mirta M. Martin said while they have put up a tree and had a lighting in the past, this is the first year it’s been a big event. She loves Christmas and this time of year, so she wanted to share that with the University and community.
For well over a decade, the Wesley Foundation has been serving one hot, homemade meal to students each week. Now Fairmont State University has teamed up with Aladdin Food Services to help the Wesley Foundation combat hunger on Fairmont State’s campus.
