New Fresno State students walked the campus Tuesday, getting their first taste of what campus life is like. Dog Days is open to more than 13,000 students admitted to the university for Fall 2017 semester-- over 6,000 this year signed up to attend.

Incoming freshman Jack Luoa plans to study mechanical engineering. He said this helps rid the anxiety some students have about getting lost on campus.

"I really like how Fresno State is making a really big effort to try to introduce students to college."

Students followed around campus leaders, exploring where the colleges and schools are. Parents sat in inside the Satellite Student Union asking questions about academics and co-curricular activities for their kids.

Marshall Dennings said it takes some pressure off him as well as his son.

"It gives us a little bit more involvement rather than, 'hey, I'm here what do I do now.'"

And for anyone student stressing about the new chapter, third-year Dallas Ruth said, "It's not that bad-- it's kinda easy."

The fall semester begins August 17th, with classes starting August 22nd.
