I live in West Virginia, so yeah, I know about Fairmont State.
Fairmont isn't that big of a town, not much to do.. But up the road from there is Morgantown, where West Virginia University is located. Believe me, if you're into partying, hit up Morgantown on the weekends. I'm sure you already know this since you're from Pitt. Lol. (BTW.. 11/27.
Fairmont is nice though. They have a top of the line aviation program. There is a NASA complex located not too far from there. They are also pretty good with legal studies, science, and they excel in Information Technology from what I hear.
Overall, it's a pretty good choice. Just my opinion though.
