Fresno City College Reviews
Its a great place to start in college life. "Fresno City College was established by Charles L. McLane, then-superintendent of Fresno Schools. It was McLane’s vision to bring higher education to the Central Valley. After a failed attempt to start a normal school, he turned his attention to establishing the state’s first junior college. McLane utilized the 1907 Upward Extension Law that gave local high schools permission to provide the first two years of university instruction. The new junior college became an extension of Fresno High School, which at the time was located at Stanislaus and O streets in downtown Fresno." -Wikipedia
Even though Fresno City College doesn't have a specific forestry program, a sister school, Reedley College does. Many of my classes have been directly applicable to my major, in fact, there are some that I have been able to take at FCC instead of having to after I transfer, which is a huge relief. I also feel that my academic advisers are able to provide me with comprehensive answers to my questions. As far as job opportunities go, I haven't looked into them because I work for Orchard Supply Hardware in the Nursery as well as a Millerton State Park. I am already working in my field of choice. But I am certain that if I needed help with an internship or job, FCC would help me find one (or more). It has been difficult to balance my workload with my studies, but I am a very determined person and have maintained a 3.9-4.0 cumulative GPA even when I was working 65+ hours per week. I love the curriculum, especially the sciences! But I have also really enjoyed and learned a great deal from classes not necessarily related to my major, such as speech, conflict resolution, film, and English.
The campus itself is beautiful as it is one of the oldest community colleges in California. The class size is great because I feel that my instructors have the time to talk with students and answer questions. Additionally, it creates a better learning environment between all the students. My academic advisers are outstanding! They truly take the time necessary to help me map out my present and my future so that I feel that the courses I am taking are applicable to my major as well as interesting. The majority of the staff on campus are also very nice, helpful, and patient... including the Financial Aid office, which has helped me out a great deal, especially as my first semester there followed a bout with cancer. I was so nervous about everything, especially finances. They made sure all my questions were answered and that I felt confident in my choice to go to school. My time at FCC has been AWESOME!
