Safety First, Students! Fresno State has an excellent safety and security program on campus. There is an awesome service that the school offers to assist students to their cars when on campus at night. Also, campus security cars are often seen driving through parking lots to protect possible crimes. So, I'd give on campus safety an A. Unfortunately, the city of Fresno has a high crime rate. While crimes do not usually happen directly on campus, off campus housing and surrounding streets do have occurrences. Despite that, Fresno State has an excellent program called Crime Watch, which is an email service that notifies students of reported crimes that occur within the area. This service has been helpful multiple times, and because students are made aware of the crimes, they can help in solving unidentified offenders with their statements. Taking in the sometimes dangerous area surrounding campus, along with the school's efforts, I'd rate the safety around a B+. If you're aware of your surroundings and utilize their programs, you'll be fine.

I'm personally on the university track team and I can say the opportunities they provide are excellent. The facilities are either brand new or being currently renovated. Fresno state offers a great variety of intramural sports too , which I would definitely be a part of if not for my prior commitment with track. Student involvement at football games is pretty high, half the city practically comes out to tailgate, it's pretty fun!

In my opinion I believe the food on campus is great. For people who like to eat healthy, there is a choice of eating subway and there are other things like yogurts, fruit cups, etc. Others who like bigger meals have the option of eating Panda Express, which I love, as well as Robertitos, TacoBell, and a burger place that I have not been too. For quick snacks you can find chips, candy, icecream, brownies, bananas, apples, shakes, donuts, and so much more! There is a lot to eat and a lot to choose from.
