Advice for new students?
Albert Einstein: "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow,  the important thing is not to stop questioning.” I understand how difficult it is in the first year of university, especially for international students whose english is the second language, but never afraid to ask for help from your professors or your friends or anyone around, as long as you need help, we, Fresno State, are always here for you.
