About The Campus
At California State University, Fresno, we believe the power of one is fueled by the energy of red. Many people, of course, know of Fresno State’s Red Wave, the university’s wildly enthusiastic band of sports supporters. But that’s just a sliver of the story because the color of red at Fresno State symbolizes so much more: Boldness. Strength. Dynamics. And, above all, pride and passion.
Fresno State thrives on its commitment to help students live their dreams and fulfill
their ambitions. Since 1911, more than 200,000 people have graduated from our schools
and colleges. Our high-caliber academic programs are bolstered by award-winning faculty,
hands-on experiences, real-world practices and an expanded library that now is the
largest in the
23-campus CSU system.
What’s more, Fresno State offers an abundance of pursuits beyond the classroom. On
campus, you’ll be steps away from a lauded modern arena that features today’s top
touring acts as well as a state-of- the- art Student Recreation Center. Off campus,
you’ll be within a couple hours of snowboarding in the mountains or sunbathing on
a beach. And, amid the fun, there also are thoughtful endeavors: a focus on community
volunteerism and shaping leaders for the future. A rich diversity of people and experiences
awaits you here in the heart of California. Join us. Share with us.
Red just may become your favorite color.
