Commencement for the Class of 2020

A special thank you to everyone who has supported the Student Hardship and Emergency Fund.  

The F&M community has come together to navigate this unprecedented time with resilience and compassion. So many of our parents, alumni, faculty and staff have stepped up quickly and generously to help our students in this time of need. To date the fund has already received more than $121,000 to use immediately to help students get through unforeseen hardships during these uncertain days. Thank you.
