A Major Decision

I’ve noticed that deciding a major is a topic that comes up a lot when in conversation with parents, faculty, and other students here at FPU. Honestly, it can be a bit overwhelming. How are we expected to pick one subject area to pursue out of so many options? There are many students who are […]

My Top 5 Reasons to Attend FPU

I’ve only been at FPU for a few months, and I know already that I have chosen the right school. Here are the reasons why: 5. Sports and Events Many people work hard to put on a variety of activities for our school. I recently went to Fall Formal at the Chaffee Zoo and had […]

Fall Formal

I’d have to say that school dances were some of my favorite memories from high school. Of course, being in a crowded room full of loud and sweaty teenagers was not exactly “special,” but there were parts of the evening that I always enjoyed that didn’t actually take place on the dance floor. I loved […]

Yesterday was a blur. I was on the go for nine hours straight and then had a pile of homework waiting for me when I got back to the dorm. On top of that, I had a Mod Meeting in the common area at 10 pm, a meeting with all the girls on my floor […]

What is there to Do in Fresno?

Let me start off by saying that I am proud of where I’m from. The Central Valley is nothing like the images of picturesque beaches and flashy movie stars one might imagine when they hear the word California. The Central Valley is, as it’s name says, right in the middle of California. The heat can […]

So Much to Do in so Little Time…

Today is the start of my fifth week here at FPU. Wow, it feels weird writing that. Time has flown by and that excites me because Christmas will be here before we know it! I am having a really good time here. I stay pretty busy between classes, studying, and my job, but I also […]

First Impressions

I still can’t believe I’m here. I can’t believe I’m taking college classes, living in a college dorm, and mingling with college students. The whole idea of college is still so foreign to me. A few years ago, I would’ve never imagined that I’d be attending a private Christian university right out of high school. […]
