Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I am doing Masters in Industrial Technology from fresno state and this is my final semester. I will be graduating in May 2015. These 1 and a half year in fresno is one of the best times i have had. The support and help from professor was commendable and the faculty was encouraging which made me complete my masters in just 18 months. There is lot of diversity on campus which makes this place a happening place to complete your studies. Yes there are few drawbacks and that is ok because the university staff works hard to make a students life as normal as possible. Fresno state is an amazing place to be at and the university ranking for sure stands high.

Degree: Industrial Engineering

California State University, Fresno is an amazing school to learn and enhance the skill set of a budding professional. Apart from amazing diversity and varied colors Fresno State can be a home away from home.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2018

It is a new program, so it is still developing. The input you place makes a huge difference. All the students help each other succeeded. Most professors are very flexible and always have there doors open so you can walk in and ask several questions.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

This program does provide you with a degree, however the faculty are too incredibly busy to be accessible or helpful. The program provides you with some vague resources to guide for searching for answers through the cluttered cloud of information that exists. The school, overall, lacks communication efficacy from its administration as well.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

One great aspect about the counseling graduate program is the programs inclusion of a course that allows future counselors to practice counseling with student clients, before starting their training at a counseling center. However, the quality of instructors is not as great as it should be, however, I would said that so far 90% of the instructors I have had have been great mentors and role models. They treat students like colleagues, which makes the whole learning process much more effective and encourages future counselors to continue with the program.
