The latest edition of the FresnoState Magazine brings to life the stories of our diverse alumni making a difference here in the Central Valley, across the country and around the world. From a recent grad serving in Haiti to Fresno State’s first National Football League pick, a 1941 graduate, our alumni reflect on their university experiences and their ongoing connection to the Fresno State community.

FresnoState Magazine also outlines a new strategy for the alumni association and the Smittcamp Alumni House; updates the Campaign for Fresno State; and offers profiles of new Bulldog coaches Raegan Pebley (women’s basketball) and Trisha Ford (women’s softball).

FresnoState Magazine, which has won numerous awards for excellence, is a publication of the Office of University Communications.

It is published online and also distributed by mail to a select list of Fresno State alumni, supporters and friends.
