"The entrepreneurship program at Fresno State has definitely been the best education I've ever received. Dr. Tim Stearns, Josh Long, Tom Burns and the entire faculty made me think critically and prepared me for the work I'm doing now. Since leaving the Lyles Center, I've continued my business and did more than $300,000 in sales last year. This phenomenal program has made a big difference in my life and my ability to perform as an entrepreneur with the correct mindset to achieve success."

--Fresno State Alumnus Ryan Budge, Founder of Budge Building


"I graduated in the spring of 2011 and became a part of the Lyles Center. I am proud to have attended such a prestigious program and am thankful for everything the program has provided. I will never forget my time here - the Lyles Center faculty, staff and administration always do a fantastic job."

--Juli Gregson, Fresno State Alumna, B.S. Business Administration, Entrepreneurship
