Introducing the CAST...

Connecting Alumni Students and Traditions

In the spirit of enhancing the student experience and alumni engagement, the Fairmont State University Alumni Mentor Program enables alumni to share their professional expertise and personal experience and expertise with current Fairmont State University students. The connections made in the program help prepare our students for a successful future and leave a lasting impact on our campus community.

As an alumni mentor, you will have the opportunity to advise student(s) on academic guidance, career advice and personal development for the academic year. We encourage mentors and mentees to connect on a regular basis (i.e. once a month phone call, in person meeting, or email conversation). However, the frequency and form of communication are things you both can determine. Opportunities to interact through the program will include virtual discussions, networking events and workshops, special invitations to athletic events, and volunteer opportunities.
 Alumni do not have to be on campus to leave a footprint at Fairmont State University. Whether you are right down the street or across the country, we invite alumni from around the world to be part of the Fairmont State University Alumni Mentor Program.

A Student CAST and Mentor Matching Mixer will be held on Thursday, February 15th 5-7:30PM (location to be determined).
