I attended Fresno City College at the Manchester Center campus for my certificate in the Business Office Assistant program and my experience here, has been a positive one. I went through the program without having to repeat any classes, maintaining a 3.0 or better the whole time. I feel like the program was designed for us to succeed... Having three children under the age of 6, it seemed impossible for me to ever go back to school. When the CalWORKs program told me that I was going to have to go to school ... I was very timid, but as I went on I realized that I was intelligent. I have grown so much since I enrolled at FCC. ... now I am a confident, educated women and I owe it all to CalWORKs and Fresno City College.
