Freshmen Class ShirtsFreshmen, you are now able to purchase your class shirts online through Lands End.
Student BelongingsStudents: It is extremely important that you keep your personal items with you at all times. We have recently had theft on our campus from students leaving their belongings unattended for just a few minutes. It is very difficult to recover stolen items, so make sure to keep your belongings safe by keeping them with you at all times!
Please also make sure that you take all of your belongings with you when you leave a classroom. It is your responsibility to retrieve your items. If you do leave items behind, don't worry; they will remain in the classroom or be placed in the lost and found bin the following day. Our lost and found bin is located upstairs near the elevator and is very full. If you have lost any items during the school year so far, please come and check if it is in the lost and found. All items that are not claimed before spring break will be donated to charity.
Check Fresno State email - Make it a habitSophomores, juniors and seniors make it a habit to check your Fresno State emails regularly (at least once per week or more). If you have a question about a Fresno State email you receive, please contact Mrs. Rea.
Important Attendance InformationParents, it is very important that we know where your student is at all times. If your student will be leaving early or absent the entire day, call the front office at 559-278-8263 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that same day. If you pick up your student from school before classes end for any reason, you must sign them out. If they are planning on returning to school after being checked out, they have to come to the office to sign back in.

Rosetta Institue Molecular Biology Science CampsRosetta Institue summer workshops during June and July of 2018 are held at UC Berkeley and UC San Diego. These include three workshops on Molecular Biology of Cancer and Molecular Neuroscience, two workshops on Molecular Immunology and one Molecular Biology of Development and Aging workshop. The workshops are taught by PhD-level scientists who are actively engaged in the field of medical research, and they expose students to cutting-edge molecular biology through engaging lectures and real-world molecular biology lab exercises. Workshop participants experience college life in a safe environment by living in the undergraduate dorms and eating in undergraduate dining facilities, and they make friends with fellow students from around the nation and around the world. Our Medical and Translational Bioinformatics workshops are held during winter and spring breaks starting 12/26 and 4/2 in Berkeley, CA and starting 3/12 at TCU in Dallas, TX. These are great workshops for students who want to do research from home or work on a science project. We also have a lab-intensive workshop on Biomedical Research at our lab in San Jose during late July-early August. Bioinformatics and Biomedical Research workshops are commuter-only so if you are from outside the area you would need your own accommodations.
Please note that we use a rolling admissions system, so there is no application deadline and early applicants are more likely to be accepted. You can learn more about the workshops and apply by visiting our website: http://www.rosettainstitute.org
