Fresno State

California State University, Fresno was founded as Fresno State Normal School in 1911, became a teacher's college in 1921, and has offered advanced degrees since 1949. Our mascot is the Bulldog.

Fresno State is one of the 23 campuses of the California State University, one of the largest systems of higher education in the world. The university is accredited by the California Board of Education and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It has 26 nationally accredited departmental programs, among the highest number within the CSU system.

During the 2011-12 academic year the university enrolled more than 21,500 students, and approximately 4,400 students completed work for bachelor's, master’s and doctoral degrees by Commencement 2011. 1,100 full- and part-time; 96 percent of the tenured faculty hold doctoral or other terminal degrees in their areas of study.

The 388-acre main campus and its 1,011-acre University Farm are located at the northeast edge of Fresno, California, at the foot of the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range. The surrounding San Joaquin Valley is one of the richest agricultural areas in the world, and Fresno is the fifth largest city in California. The university is within an hour's drive of many mountain and lake resorts and within a three- or four-hour drive of both Los Angeles and San Francisco.
