Why Fresno State
I chose Fresno State for the warm environment and welcoming spirit. The weather is not cold. It is very identical to my hometown which heavily relies on the agriculture industry. Good location, close to most of the major cities in California.

Best thing about Fresno State
Very inviting on academic progression, and very friendly environment.

Favorite campus activities
New student orientations, vintage day, and all student club-related activities especially hiking with your friends. Student recreation center too!

Favorite local activities
Kid’s day, football games, and basketball games hosted locally.

Favorite things to do in Fresno, California
Visit national parks close by. Hunt for food, visit leisure squares(River park, Campus pointe, etc)

Plans after graduation
I intend to get into research and project-related engineering departments in one of the big Tech companies and start off my career in that direction.

Advice for the new students
Get involved with campus life. How? ISSP, student club fair, your own departments, or even hop into one of the volunteering opportunities on campus to make friends. Be bold try out all the campus-related activities you have never done before, no one will judge you, in fact, we will be there to encourage you and share your joy.
