I love Fresno state ! I was there for dog days and I fell in love with the campus and all the campus leaders saying to join club and go to football, basketball , or any type of sports games to not be left out ! And that's great, so I can feel that I have a big family and enjoy myself in Fresno state. I also like how they say the students here are dedicated and open to diversity !

The only problem that I have with Fresno State is the over-population. There are too many students and not enough resources to effectively help all of them. I like all of the school spirit that my school has. The teachers are pretty cool also.
