Clubs, Organizations, and Greek Life

The Fairmont State University experience consists of academic exploration and social participation. A combination of departments provide extracurricular activities to enhance campus life. Over 45 various student organizations and clubs are available on campus. The options range from joining student government, professional and honor societies, and Greek Life to participating in intramural sports or other clubs or organizations. Both on-campus and commuter students are kept in mind when campus life activities are organized, so every student has an opportunity to get involved.

"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."

Fairmont State has been the perfect decision for me. I have been blessed with amazing, kind, and caring professors who have really made this experience great."
