"Each and every day, we’re amazed by the talents of our graduates are achieving in their fields of study," reports Jacquelyn K. Glasener, executive director, Fresno State Alumni Association. "Although a majority of our alumni choose to stay in the area, many have made their mark throughout California and onto the national and international stages."

Take a moment to meet a few of the 3 million remarkable California State University alumni who are making a difference in the lives of the people of California and the world.
