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!

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.
