History[edit] Fresno State was founded as the Fresno State Normal School in 1911 with Charles Lourie McLane as its first president.[14] The original campus was what is now Fresno City College. In 1956, Fresno State moved its campus to its present location in the northeast part of the city, and FCC bought the old campus and moved back in.[15] It became Fresno State College in 1949, when it was authorized to grant bachelor's degrees. It became a charter institution of the California State University System in 1961. In 1972 the name was officially changed to California
State University, Fresno.[14] Campus[edit] The greater campus extends from Bulldog Stadium
