1. Fresno City College is a beautiful, old fashioned campus, with a diverse student population, located right in the heart of Fresno's historic Tower District.
2. Teachers are involved and invested in the success of their students, and in my experience, have been easily accessible for any issue or questions a student might have.
3. There are constantly activities, festivals, seminars, and rummage sales going on at the campus, making it a fantastic place to just spend time sitting and soaking in the cultural and educational goings-on.

I would rate academic rigor as a 4+, I had a very good experience with my faculty members. Every now and then you may have one that is more into research or other activities than teaching but this is the exception. As for dorm life, Fresno City College does not have dorms but this does not mean it lacks a sense of unity among students. Their are more than enough opportunities to meet others in various activities and fun events the campus sponsors. They even have a Greek Life. I would rate this a 5/5. As for food and dining, it is easily accessible, quick and most college student can afford it, so I would rate it a 4/5.
