    One of the cheapest out of state universities, only a 14 % graduation rate but you can definitely achieve anything you commit to.

    couple of different malls in the area, good restaurants around are good places to eat off campus. Fairmont's sports teams are good and are interesting to watch. Basketball's team is doing good this year.

    I love it here. The professors and academic advisors are always watching your back. The library also carries DVDs that students can borrow for a week. They have films that range from sci-fi (AvP) to tragic romance (The Phantom of the Opera).
