Dog Days

Vanessa, Orientation Leader

Vanessa Gonzalez

I recently received my English Education B.A. with an emphasis in Theatre Education and am now pursuing my single subject credential in English! I'm a proud dog mom and am often covered in dog fur, and am probably always drinking water or coffee on camera.

The BARK Book is the new student handbook for incoming Fresno State students. It contains information such as important dates, Early Start and Catalog Rights requirements, Advising Centers, and the information about departments on campus.
