Recently, in Washington Monthly 2016 College Ranking Article, Fresno State was ranked 25th amongst the nation's top universities. Surrounding Fresno State were Ivy leagues, Stanford, Harvard, and MIT taking the top 3 spots. 

Fresno State ranked highly as a result of the high graduation rates with all of their graduates, including first-generation students. Fresno State also has a higher income earning percentage after graduation, as well as pay off their student loan debts quickly.  

Another notable aspect of Fresno State that was mentioned, was their work-study program. 59 percent of those funds go back to the students and to service. This percentage is ranked as one of the highest. 

This ranking really proves to the Fresno area, as well as the staff, that their tireless work is paying off. As noted in our recently published article, "Fresno State Alumni Association Goes Above and Beyond for Their Fellow Alumni," even the Alumni Association is working to make the environment for students and graduates alike a more successful one. This is a sign of an encouraging and inspiring core. 

Congratulations, California State University Fresno!
