            Fresno State changed my life

            While it's been decades since I was a student at Fresno State, I'll always be a loyal Bulldog...and not just to the athletic side of the house. The professors in the Journalism Dept. saw things in me I did not know were there. They took the time to invest in me as a person. The education and training I received, not to mention the confidence I gained, have enabled my career. I come back, from Georgia, at least once a year to remember the place and the people who gave me the confidence to tackle the business world. I would recommend my alma mater to anyone!
