Miguel from Fresno, CA
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.
