    The tuition isn't that bad considering all the benefits you get out of it like tutoring, zumba, plays, a huge library with over a million books (not kidding),and even doctor checkups right on campus.

    No college is truly cheap, however, this college does give you various learning abilities with the money paid to go there.

    My major adviser is great! I can tell she really wants to help me succeed and gives helpful tips on how to do so. I find the actual major advisers to be much better than the ones offered in the Joyal Administration building. However, they really must put more recycling cans around, not just garbage cans. I know the city of Fresno as a whole is typically looked heavily down upon but this school gives me some hope that I might make it out there somewhere else and hopefully cast a brighter shadow on it.

    Even though I received a loan, I honestly feel like I'm getting so much! The rec center is in your tuition fee, so why pay extra monthly for a gym membership?!? Plus, there are just so many things to be involved in!

    Fresno State is one of the most inexpensive universities in California. Even living in Fresno is inexpensive compared to other college towns. The quality of the education is great and well worth it.
