Hanson plays factor in Fresno Unified board election
(Fresno Bee © 10/15/2012)
The superintendent could be a galvanizing issue, said Jeff Cummins, associate professor of political science at Fresno State. Clearly something has made a difference, since the slate of candidates is one of the largest in recent memory. In the past three elections, only two trustee races had more than two candidates. This year, there are 11 total candidates: five in Hoover High's Area 6, three for Fresno High's Area 5 and three in Roosevelt High's Area 2 to replace Moore.

(Fresno Bee © 10/15/2012)
What happened: Leaders of the Fresno State fraternity where a freshman drank himself to death told 15 pledges they couldn't leave a room until they had polished off multiple bottles of liquor, a court document released Tuesday stated.

(Fresno Bee © 10/15/2012)

He earned an interdisciplinary master's degree in documentary studies and Southeast Asian studies at Fresno State, using his photo project as his thesis. And he made six trips to Laos, climbing ever higher in the mountains to reach remote Hmong villages. These striking p...

Annual tuition at the nation's largest university system is now $5,970, in addition to $1,047 in campus fees. Cal State University students could see an additional 5 percent tuition hike this spring if voters fail to pass Gov. Jerry Brown's November tax initiative. So when the CSU earlier this year approved a round of raises for newly hired campus presidents, Silva said she was outraged.

Response to student death
(Fresno Bee © 10/13/2012)
A new poster has popped up in the Fresno State halls -- "Know The Signs Of Alcohol Poisoning." I can only guess this is Fresno State's attempt to address the issue of underage/excessive drinking that led to the death of an 18-year-old freshman last month.
