It is hard to believe that a new semester has begun and it is beginning to feel like fall here in West Virginia. Fall is my favorite season, especially because it means that Fairmont State’s Homecoming is right around the corner, September 28-30. I am always excited to meet former graduates during the activities and listen to stories from when they were on campus, whether it was 10 years ago or 50 years ago.
We kick off the week with the annual Homecoming parade on Thursday evening. On Friday, we will be recognizing two special groups - the members of the class of 1967 will be inducted into the Emeritus Club and the 1967 National Championship football team will be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame. On Saturday, we will be recognizing nine special Alumni Award Winners prior to the football game.
I hope that you will review the calendar of events and will be able to join us for some of the activities this year!
