Fresno City College’s story
Opening in 1910, Fresno City College was the first public community college in California, and second in the nation. The school is the largest of the five in the State Center Community College District, and benefits from Fresno’s diverse environment—students can enjoy both the mountains and the ocean easily from their campus.
The challenges Fresno City College faced
Fresno City College’s goal is increasing enrollment and getting more students certificates, getting them to transfer, and graduate. With COVID, they’ve been feeling the effects of the enrollment decline, and their lack of virtual tour and map tools weren’t raising those numbers. The Fresno team saw the opportunity for virtual solutions to help students understand and navigate campus to help reach enrollment goals.
