Online Orientation Section 2:4
Getting involved is a very important part of college life, it helps you transition and really feel connected to the university. We encourage you to learn about the many ways you can become involved on campus.
The Student Involvement office, located on the top floor of the University Student Union, provides information on clubs and organizations to students who are looking for ways to get involved on campus. You can pick up a list of all the student clubs and organizations on campus and find a club that meets your interests. This office also provides information on getting involved in student government.
Athletics are another great way that students can get involved on campus as either an athlete or a supporter of Bulldog Athletics. Fresno State is currently part of the Mountain West Conference and competes in a number of sports. Students get in free to almost all athletic events, except football, where students receive discounted tickets. Tickets can be purchased at the Bulldog box office, the University Student Union or online at GoBulldogs.com.
Student Recreation Center
The Rec Center’s mission is to provide quality recreational opportunities, experiences, and facilities for the university community. These programs and services are designed to develop a lifetime interest in recreation and fitness activities. Opportunities for fun and fitness include:
• Fitness classes (approximately 15 per week)
• Recreation equipment rental
• Personal training and nutritional consultants
• Intramural sports
In addition, the state-of-the-art facility includes:
• 94,000 square-foot weight and fitness area
• Four-lane, 1/8-mile indoor track
• Four NCAA regulation size basketball and volleyball courts

For students who love sports but do not want to play at the collegiate level, intramural sports is a great alternative. Intramurals allows students to meet new people, stay active, and play the sports they love. There is no cost associated with intramural sports because all students pay for them in their student fees. There is a full range of intramural sports offered year round that include flag football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball, tennis, water polo and ultimate Frisbee.
