3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: My school is located on the poorest zip code area.

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 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.

College Junior

Local Atmosphere: campus is pretty close to everything.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is great. We have tons of shopping and many local businesses. Fresno advertises a lot for keeping local businesses afloat .
