Freshman Connect

Freshman Connect Logo Freshman Connect will group first year freshmen with a Freshman Coach in their first 2 semesters at Fresno State. Emails and Facebook posts will be used to communicate important deadlines and use of resources, as well as opportunities to ask students how their semester is going and if they have any questions. Ultimately, Freshman Connect will provide a peer-to-peer connection to help students be successful in their first year at Fresno State.

How to get involved:

  • All incoming freshmen will be grouped with a Freshman Coach through email
