Monday, May 08, 2017

Fairmont State University students, faculty, staff, alumni the community are invited to the dedication ceremony for the new Falcon Commons, a brick pathway on the main campus selected as the Senior Campaign by the Class of 2017.

“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.

The dedication ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 11, in the new Falcon Commons area. Students, alumni, friends and FSU employees purchased personalized bricks for the pathway and will have the opportunity to see them as part of the new pathway. The #putabrickonit campaign raised about $12,000.

A reception will follow the ceremony in the second floor Nickel area of the Falcon Center.
