I think Fresno City College is a good starter school. It'll save you money, you'll make some friends, but ultimately most people transfer to CSU Fresno State.

Esperanza - 06/15/2020

My opinion for Fresno City College is that the programs like Arts or Engineering classes and more programs are very good. Teachers and counselors will be there to help you if your stuck as long as you show them that your really taking college seriously. Although I haven’t gotten to meet my teachers yet due to this pandemic of the Coronavirus and will have to take online courses I have gotten in touch to a counselor for engineering that had help me about taking the right classes so I wouldn’t be taking classes that I wouldn’t need. I know that Fresno City College would be a good school for me.

Kalib - 04/16/2020

Fresno City College is a great school to go to if you do not want to jump straight into a four-year university. The teachers are willing to work with you, but you have to be able to articulate what you need. Overall, I would recommend this school to others.

Felipe - 10/27/2019

I believe it’s a good option for me to contitinue my studies. The school seems nice and calm and without a lot of issues. I love the fact that everyone’s able to go even though we didn’t have good grades I messed up for three years in high. Do to that I wasn’t able to go somewhere else but well after a while of being somewhat sad. I was relieved to know that Fresno City College can really help me in continuing going to school. So that one day I can be something bigger and better than what I was before.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I came to Fresno City College with the desire to transfer after only one year to an art school in San Francisco. I based my class schedule on the art school's transfer guide and was completely focused on the subject I planned to major on there, which was filmmaking. After only one semester at Fresno City, I had completely changed my mind. Not only did more reaseach show me that the aforementioned art school was not right for me at all, but being thrust into the new enviromnet which was Fresno City made me open up to new experiences. I have shifted my major focus and I don't know what school I will be attending after FCC. Yet I'm okay with that. I will stay where I am for another year and do research to really find out where I want to be. If I could go back in time to talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to be open to different possibilities. Then I could have come to Fresno City unshackled by a rigid transfer guide and just let myself take the classes I am passionate about.
