Campus Dining: Most of the dining inside campus are expensive. But the best one that I recommend is THE BUCKET-they have a reasonable price.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Students treat each other with respect and value each other sexual orientations, religion, economic background, and political beliefs.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: You will like the professors-some or nice, stern, mean, and sometimes not well suited to be a teacher. So, you have a mixture of different professors. Classes are fun and can be challenging but the class size are getting larger because of the cut down on classes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Occupational Therapy is in high demand-you could find volunteering and career opportunities in Fresno. But it is better to find opportunities outside of Fresno.

Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: I usually get my food inside campus. I cannot give good input about this topic.

Athletics: in Football, everybody-not just students come and support the game.

Majors: They cut off my Program four years ago. But, as long you are graduating with Bachelor's degree and completed the courses for Occupational Therapy-you will most likely will be in the Master program.

Majors: I enjoyed my program. We have an Occupational Therapy club called Student Pre-Occupational Therapy Association or known as SPOTA, This club main goal is networking, volunteering, and internships, and spreading the word about Occupational therapy. Occupational Therapy does a lot of interesting things. We have to take an art class, psychology classes, anthropology classes, and of course anatomy and physiology.

Local Atmosphere: Restaurants are just a walking distance away from the school and the Fresno Mall is nearby. You just have to look around and see what you are interested in.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: They are nice people and are really involved in the community.

Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: never partied at a college before-but I heard it is fun.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I have not live on campus-so I cannot provide good input on campus housing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Fresno state is a good college. The library is the place I go and hang out/study the most. They have very good space, 4 floors, great study rooms for individuals or groups and a Starbucks on the second floor. In addition to that, the librarians and librarians aides are very nice and provide great resources for your assistance.

Nightlife: If you want to dance your butt off, you'll find places to do that. If you want to chill and chat over a glass of wine, hot tea, chai, cucumber water, kale smoothy, you'll find that too. There are as many scenes as there are people in Fresno. You won't have a problem finding something entertaining to do to enjoy a night in the city.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, my experience was good enough to return. I attended CSU, Fresno as an undergrad and I came back to work on my graduate degree. The staff and students make all the difference. It's hot as hell in the Central Valley, so the fact that you can be in a classroom and discuss some pretty excellent content with peers and profs. is all you can ask for and more. It is an experience that is well worth every penny.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had many opportunities, both as an undergrad and grad level student. The profs are all about making sure their students (you and me) are offered the competitive opportunities to go out in the world and show off our skills (and their hard work). The profs want us to be successful, so I am always receiving emails and flyers about opportunities. There is a real push for us to be interconnected and sharing opportunities to better ourselves and succeed.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: There is definitely not a super stuffy strict vibe on campus. From police, admin and profs, everyone is pretty easy to get along with and fairly understanding. If you screw up, they are pretty understanding and willing to forgive and help you move on and succeed.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Fresno is the best you're gonna get, as far as Big City life goes in Central California. Things are relatively average around town. There is definitely a trendier, hipster vibe in the Tower District and there is the Business Profesh world in downtown Fresno... and throughout the city there is everything in between. It's a decent place to live and it's easy on the budget too.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: If you are attending college for the social scene, you'll find it. If you are attending college for an education, you'll find that too. There isn't an overwhelming sense of one or the other. Meaning, it's not a PARTY school and it's not obsessively academic either. It's what you make of it. People are just your average, normal people. Sure there are jerks, but you will find those at every school.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It's important to ask questions and educate yourself on what is and is not available. I missed out on a lot of money because I didn't meet deadlines or didn't have the correct info. So, do the work, find the answers and there is always money.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not and have never lived on campus but the facilities are hard to avoid. From what I know, they are basically your average living quarters. Nothing extravagant and nothing impoverished. Just average.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity is pretty average. There aren't too many hippy liberals or stuffy conservatives. You will find those groups on campus but you won't feel like you are being beat over the head by an overwhelming vibe. Everyone respects everyone and every view is relevant.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The truth is, not very many colleges offer tasty home-cooking. Nothing beats homemade food. So, you will find your typical dining hall that charges students way too much for access to the food. The variety is average and the options in the student center range from sandwich shops to typical Chinese fast food and pizza, it's your average fast-food food court.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The general school spirit is pretty active and widespread. Of course the football program takes the lead but there are other sports that draw quite a bit of spirit as well. In general, the campus pride shines no matter the sport. People are just proud to be Bulldogs.

4 College Junior

Academics: The programs are relatively smaller and that makes staff and profs. more accessible and not so overwhelmed with outside duties. They are here for us and live in the moment. It's rare that I have a prof. that seems aloof and split in 20 different directions, which could easily be the case if the prof has too much on their plate. Here at State, the campus is pretty close-knit and people genuinely like being a part of the community. There is a lot of pride that goes into the work being done and that makes all the difference.
