Fresno State Connect Initiative attended the Fresno Unified Parent University Career and College Symposium. At this event, families received information about college admission, financial aid, and FAFSA completion. The Connect Initiative provided information about low-cost internet services that are available to community members. Low-cost internet is an invaluable resource for students and families who are applying to college, as applications and financial aid are often completed online.
