I love everything about Fairmont State University. The fact that I can take classes on campus, online, or on many other campuses makes getting to class a lot easier. The small class sizes are also a huge plus.

FSU is a pretty small sized school; which I love! The professors at FSU are very helpful with managing your time if you let them be. Overall, I think FSU is a great school.
