4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Fresno State and it is a great match for me. Sometimes I wish more students there were more academically inclined, but I also know a lot of great students that help me stay focused.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a great school to attend, teachers/ counselors and administrators are very caring

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had the most amazing time at Fresno State! The schools is great, my professors have all been very nice and helpful, the campus isn't too big but it isn't too small either. That's great because just by walking around campus you meet so many different people. There are many events that happen during specific times and they are all so much fun to go to. Other than the actual campus the faculty and advisors are great. They push you to do your best and get where you are trying to go!

Overall Experience: Overall, the experience and education system at California State University Fresno has been awesome. Since day one I have felt right at home and the staff and other students there made it even better. We have a very diverse population of students at our school which makes it even more distinctive and unique compared to other college campuses. Everyone has open arms and is willing to help you out in any way possible which I think is even more great. If I could do it all over again, I probably would not choose a different campus.

Off-Campus Housing: There's plenty of apartments available around campus but they're not all that great. They're ok for living there during the school year some are affordable but most of them are pretty expensive. That's one of the most difficult things to look for before the school year, an affordable home for the year.

Off-Campus Dining: There's a variety of off-campus dining from fast food places to family restaurants. Some places are pretty expensive but others are affordable. It's something you need to look into before going.

4 College Junior

Administration: I don't know about campus strictness. I don't live in the dorms so I don't know what it's like there on campus, security is always around if you need them.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I don't really eat campus food but I normally get Panda Express. It's really good and Taco Bell is pretty good as well. The bucket serves good food as well and has special throughout the day. I really like how there's Starbucks in the library and it's convenient when studying or doing homework on the second floor where Starbucks is available.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid process went smoothly and I knew what to fill out. I received the aid I needed in order to pay for tuition, books, and my living expenses. I recommend applying for financial aid immediately and filling out in forms that need to be turned in to financial aid office. If there's any questions about financial aid or the forms always go to the financial aid office and ask for their help. They're friendly and help you with whatever you may need.

Campus Housing: Living at the Fresno State dorms is actually a good idea if you don't know anyone at all. You will meet your best friends there. Unfortunately, you and your new best friends will hate living there. There are many rules that are unnecessary considering we are all adults. The wifi there is the worst. Only good thing about living there would have to be how close it was to all my classes allowing me to sleep in a little longer. Other than that, I did not enjoy living there but I did enjoy being able to make friends with my floormates.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The only options for living off campus are either living kind of far from campus for a cheap price or living close for really expensive or in a bad area. You cant win.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of fast food restaurants near campus. There arent that many options but there are more than enough places to eat.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I don't think the strictness is that bad except if you live on campus. The campus police don't really get in the way of anything.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I like the food offered on campus except for the food in the University Dining Hall.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid office claimed to be offering me 10,000 dollars in financial aid but actually was offering me to loans and only about 5000 dollars. I did not receive as much financial aid as I needed.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The only con I find is that sometimes you have to drive to school if you live in a place off campus. Some off campus places are a block away from campus so those people can walk and that is fine. As for housing, you get much more space & you can room in with people you know. You do have to buy your own furniture and stuff. I believe some places offer you furniture but it can be more expensive. I'd rather live off campus than on.

Campus Food: 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.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are several fast food options off campus as well as restaurants like Dog House and Bufalo Wild Wings close to campus. These restaurants usually get full of people but they are quick in making your order. The one I love the most is Chipotle which is infront of campus.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus strictness is okay. My basic things that the school worries about is drug or alcohol use since it is a major problem with college students. Parking is also very strict. You must park in the green areas only and not the yellow ones because yellow ones are mostly for staff. You must put your parking permit on your rear view mirror. If not seen by security, you will get a parking ticket. Also, noise must be kept low. Such loud noise will lead to a problem with the school.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid went great for me. I completed the tax forms and the school added a to do list on my portal where it listed what I needed to do in order to receive my financial aid. It was easy and I have no problems with it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I believe it's okay for several reasons. The dorms on campus are average and decent to live in. Sometimes you may have to room in with a person you do not know so that can creat a social atmosphere but can also have a bad say about a person. That person might not be as neat as you are and might just not be a match for you to live with so that makes it difficult for a person to want to live on campus. People who do live on campus get to dine at the diner hall so that is a good thing. The thing I do like is that they are very close to campus so it is not a far walk and plus the dorms are spacious.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are pros to living off-campus as well as on-campus.

Party Scene: Our school has some great parties, but you could also find better ones outside of campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not the greatest, but definitely not the worse.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't know much about the strictness, but pertaining to parking, they're very strict.
