California State University-Fresno Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (30)
I went through Fresno before Transferring to UCLA after a year. This environment was more pompous than productive, full of amateur politicians not practitioners of progressive discourse. My PHD was basically on hiatus here. Though I got through classes spouting the garbage the tenured professors wanted to hear, I was never happy in this narrow minded environment. I am proud to say my real education neither started nor ended here. I consider it a waste of a year.
Truth is that this is a liberal crap heap. Look at this Randa Jarrar's vile statements and the University doesn't fire her. They have no moral compass, no class, and have severely hurt the value of my degree by acting like such a liberal douche heap. Now the whole country knows what a worthless fake school this is. I wouldn't send a dog to this commie training ground to learn how to sit. Joseph Castro has no concept of human morality or basic decision making abilities. Until Castro fires this embarrassment to humanity and to me I will put away all jerseys and take down all Fresno State gear as I am tired of being cussed at by strangers. hard to fight back when you know they're right.
A school full of hateful, bigoted, and cowardly faculty. This is one of the last schools any student should want to attend. Your thoughts and opinions are only allowed if it falls in line with their ignorant, pathetic agendas. If you want to be a narcissistic, hateful, bigoted piece of crap, then maybe this is the school for you.
I received my B.A degree in French with a minor in Chemistry in the Spring of 2015. I had a great experience at Fresno State and received overwhelming support from the program advisor and professors during my time at the university. I changed my major once during this time and had a great experience when doing so. I was unsure if I would be able to receive my Chemistry minor, however Dr. Joseph Gandler is an awesome Chemistry professor and was able to give me his input on my last two semesters at Fresno State in order to achieve this. In addition to my academicsI lived in the University dorms during my freshman year. I think every college student should experience dorm living for at least a year in college!
The Interior Design program at CSU Fresno possess academic and adjunct professors who brings extraordinary value, insight and experience to aggressively shape future designers. Many professors are skilled in fine arts and help push the students to propel and excel in academia and profession. The department is housed in an award winning Brutalism building with various disciplines of the arts. Being in close quarters with other art students challenged and inspired design processes especially when trying to resolve an issue with ones' designs. Overall, the campus is safe, clean, and offers supportive programs for the benefit of their students.
Overall I had a great experience at Fresno State University. Fresno State has an outstanding Criminology program with great professors who have excelled in the field of Criminology. The only criticism I have of Fresno State is the city itself. Fresno being a city impoverished with low socioeconomic status can make it a tough city to live in. Being a student at Fresno State does not exempt or protect you from the hardships of living in Fresno, which includes gangs and crime.
CSU, Fresno is a great campus where you will encounter a diverse community. Nevertheless, CSU, Fresno is a great community for students to grow as young professionals. The Business program is great and the amount of information acquired really does prepare you for the workforce.
Attending California State University, Fresno as an undergraduate student was a great experience. While studying through it, always ready to assist in any way possible and guide me to achieve my goals. There were various resources and plenty of networking available for those who sought them. Before graduating I was already working within my field of study.
Fresno state was a great school. I would certainly recommend it to any student considering going there. The only drawback is the city itself. It gets really hot during the summer and usually stays that way until November. Overall great school and city. Fairly cheap as well. A lot of resources are available to students
When first coming to Fresno to attend CSU Fresno, it was a bit disappointing. Coming from a big city such as Los Angeles, CA, you immediately notice the differences between the two. Fresno is a smaller city compared to Los Angeles, and life is much slower paced. One thing that is of little importance but stood out to me the most about the city of the limited options of malls, or areas to shop. It was not until living in Fresno for a few months that I began to appreciate the Fresno Area. Since Fresno is a lot more slow paced, there is less distractions in the city, which allows you to easily focus on your studies. Another plus, compared to a big city like Los Angeles, is that there was less traffic. California State University, Fresno is the main school in Fresno. Chances are every store or dine-in will have a sign relating to the school's mascot, the Bulldogs. There is a strong sense of Bulldog pride in the Fresno area. The sports at Fresno State all compete in the D1 league. This makes the games that much more exciting and the stadiums in which they compete are nice as well. The campus is nice and neat; with a big water fountain that is the center piece of the school. The facilities at Fresno State, such as the school gym, the swimming pool, and health center are very well maintained. I completed my degree in Kinesiology and learned a lot in the program. The professors were very knowledgeable on the subject and some even were recognized on a national level on the subject of kinesiology/coaching. Other professors ran sport facilities that involved training Olympic athletes and high profile upcoming athletes. I can't say I have met an unfriendly professor in my program as all I encountered were more than willing to assist me in any way. The curriculum was tough but the knowledge gained made it all worth it. I would definitely recommend this school, and the kinesiology program to those interested.
