’Dog Houses

pool2Gary Castro came up with a fun idea a few years ago when he and his wife, Sue (a 1986 Fresno State alumna), decided to resurface their back yard swimming pool. “I said, ‘Hey, we’ve got to put the Bulldog in there,’” Gary recalls. The family already had a pickup truck decked out with Bulldog décor, and they are ardent supporters of everything Fresno State, so why not? The pool has been the centerpiece for plenty of summer family memories ever since.

“For my family and our business, Bulldog spirit is totally about the Fresno State students. It’s about seeing them graduate and cheering for the spectacular athletics teams. The students give us the spirit. We have students from the Craig School of Business tour our company every year, we go to all the games and we tailgate. We feel like we’re participating in it.”
