Want to know what makes California State University, Fresno students great? If you grew up in Fresno, it's probably pretty easy to see.

Fresno State students come from hard-working families in the Central Valley, many of which are the first in their family to attend college. The four primary counties from which Fresno State recruits from consist of Fresno, Kings, Madera and Tulare. The Central Valley, at-large, includes just about everything between Stockton and Bakersfield.

Can you believe that over 66% of Fresno State students are considered first-generation college students, which means neither parent/guardian has a college degree? As a well-recognized and affordable university, students are able to attend Fresno State and graduate with little to no student debt.

Want to hire students who are local? You're in luck! Approximately 85% of our students will consider the Central Valley home after graduation. With over 6,000 students graduating this year, there is a wealth of talent to choose from. Let us know how we can help.
