K-8th Campus Tours

We welcome our K-8th students and guests to schedule a 50-mintue interactive tour. Tours are led by our Early Outreach Student Ambassadors who are specially trained current Fresno State students. Our goal is to interact with future students and create a college going culture through exposure of active student life, student services and resources, learn about our eight academic colleges, and the unique history of our university.Schedule with us
