4 College Freshman

Local Area: Overall, there are a lot of great things to do in Fresno. Mostly everything is more enjoyable at night, and if you're looking for something to do, its usually at night. However, there is the Save Mart Center that holds events which is right on campus which makes it convenient and enjoyable.

Local Area: There is a huge mall called Fashion Fair which is located on Shaw. Other great shopping locations include the Riverpark area. Fresno State football is very much supported and attended. There is very little cultural/attractions in Fresno. There are a lot of activities and things to do outside of the Fresno area.
