    Sierra Nevada Splendor

    Oh, the Sierra Nevadas, majestic, awestriking, and, right around the corner from you! That's right kids, this natural gem is also the location of your academic playground...California State University Fresno! Feel free to frolick. And if business or health are your thing, you will be frolicking alongside approximately 17% of the CSU Fresno population. Don't worry, social science folks, you can still get a celebration dance in there because you represent 11% of the CSU student body. Fresno lends a helping hand to students on a budget, awarding about 67% of its students financial aid. And here's another fun fact that will put a smile on a lot of fella's faces: 57% of the student body is female. Guys, looks like the numbers are in your favor.

    From Campus to Cozy

    Only 6% of CSU Fresno students live in college-affiliated housing. So where is everyone else going? Off-campus apartments! Some places in the area have huge rooms, if you can't bear the idea of close quarters. Others are cozier, with landscaped surroundings, and even wood-burning fireplaces. Compare prices—you can start with our extensive listings right here—and consider a roommate for optimum affordability. See if you can nab a place with a view. For trotting around town, try a ride on FAX, otherwise known as Fresno Area Express. Environmentalists and parents alike will applaud your frugality.

    Underground What?

    Behold, the hidden wonder of Forestiere Underground Gardens! Designed after Roman catacombs, the underground gardens are an inticate web of landscape and stonework. Visit the Forestiere Historical Center for more information. If you're into the idea of an all-natural amusement park, check out Kings River Expeditions, and experience the thrill of white water rapids. Music enthusiasts will be sure to enjoy the sweet sounds of the Fresno Philharmonic. Scan the current schedule here. For boozin' with buddies, head to Sequoia Sequoia Brewing Company. What goes great with beer? Beer battered mozzerella sticks, duh! Have those and an order of giant forest nachos and you'll be set. If you feel like kicking your heels up instead of putting your feet up, dance the night away in Rome.

  • Fresno Community College

    Fresno Community College

    The first community college in California, and the second in the entire nation, Fresco Community College has quite a bit of experience and history behind it. It is one of the country's smaller colleges, and located right between LA and San Francisco.

    Large, Diverse and Inland

    Fresno is the largest inland city in California, and is quite a culturally diverse area. Only 50% of the population are considered Caucasian, with a broad mix of other races living in the area. The city is famous for inventing popping as a dance style, and for Charles Grodin's mini series ... and also for your future school!

    FCC Neighborhoods for Students

    Neighborhoods surrounding Fresno Community College include Grand, Wood Streets and Eastside, with the college itself located in the White Park area. Most of the neighborhoods offering apartments for rent are those slightly south of FCC, and close to Riverside Community College.

    Bring Your Car ... Then Walk!

    While the area around the college itself is fairly walkable, with a walk score of 72 out of 100, Fresno itself is not very well served by public transport. So, if you're ever planning to get away from school, you'll most likely want the convenience of a car to gat from your apartment to the rest of the world!

    Fresh Fresno Apartments For Rent

    There are quite a few student oriented apartment blocks in the FCC area, with Riverside Community College and the University of California at Riverside not far away from your own school. Prices for these apartment rentals start at $375, and in some complexes are capped at $675 per month. Overall, housing in Fresno is extremely affordable.

    Fresno Fresh - Better Than Cafeteria Food

    Chinese and vegan will fast become your cuisines of choice at FCC - China Chop Suey and Au Lac vegan café are two of the closest restaurants to FCC, and some of your quickest and easiest eating options other than the cafeteria (shudder).

    And if your brain is desperate for some time off from thinking, Club Fred offers a cheap and easy place for a drink, right within walking distance of school. Head south into Fresno itself for a wider range of nightlife options, including eclectic nights at Teazer World Tea Market, while The Public Bar and The Red Lantern offer more traditional bar and nightclub fare.
