One of Largest Freshman Classes Expected at FSU

Posted: Updated:

In just a couple of days, one of Fairmont State University's largest freshman classes ever will be moving into their residence halls.

The past week has been busy for Student Services.

Students are still registering for classes, so concrete enrollment numbers are not available but staff said numbers have increased from last year.

Fairmont State staff said opportunities at the university are continuing to grow, which is a big part of why its enrollment is too.

"We have some very strong programs and those programs continue to attract students from around the state and from outside the state. It's not surprising to us that are familiar with what Fairmont State offers to see that happening," said Kaye Widney, vice president of Student Services at FSU.

Fairmont State University's residence halls are at capacity.

The fall semester will begin Monday, August 19.
