Why are we doing this? Google is the tool that most incoming Fresno State students use and will provide a more efficient and timely collaboration with them. This aligns with our university mission to boldly educate and empower students for success.

Let us know what you think. We care about what you think and have developed a feedback form for you to express your concerns and ideas. You may access the feedback form here.
