Living in Fresno

Location….location…location. FPU is located in a great place for students to have many choices of things to do.

Fresno is an incredibly diverse area—big enough to have several great shopping and dining areas including three malls, an art district, a variety of museums, festivals and cultural opportunities, and an assortment of other entertainment options including many live music venues. But Fresno is still small enough to have a friendly atmosphere and not have major traffic problems.

Just beyond the city limits, the options for recreation are almost limitless with our beautiful valley floor, foothills, mountains, lakes and rivers offering golf courses, water parks, trails, rock climbing, skiing, hunting and fishing. Living within a 1 ½ hour drive to three of the nation’s most scenic national parks is a statement on its own.
