After a year-long campaign, the senior class of 2017 raised $12,000 to create the Falcon Commons, an engraved brick pathway leading to the side entrance of the Falcon Center.
“As the Class of 2017, we hope that Falcon Commons and the engraved brick pathway will serve to symbolize the lasting impressions we have made on the University and the impact FSU has had on our lives,” said James Jesmer, Student Body President and a member of the Class of 2017.
Student Government Association, in addition to the Fairmont State Foundation and the Class of 2017, worked to continue the Senior Class Gift tradition encouraging seniors to leave a lasting mark on the campus that they love. The Class of 2017 has selected as its project the creation of a brick pathway in the circular area on the east side of the Falcon Center to be known as the Falcon Commons. The project will allow more use of that space as a pathway between the residence halls and the Falcon Center.
A dedication ceremony was held on May 11, in the new Falcon Commons area. Students, alumni, friends and FSU employees who purchased personalized bricks for the pathway were the first to be able to see the completed project. The Class of 2018 will be announcing the goal of their Senior Campaign in the near future.
