Merced Mayor Stan Thurston, Merced College President Ben Duran and District 2 County Supervisor Hubert Walsh were among the speakers to about 70 visitors at the center, 3379 G Street, Building P, El Portal Plaza. All expressed appreciation to the university for bringing bachelor’s degree completion and graduate programs to Merced.
To keep Valley students and families investing in higher education, FPU continues to keep tuition below national averages and increase services students need to succeed.
“A high-quality private education can be affordable,” said Stephen Varvis, FPU vice president for enrollment management. “Fresno Pacific has the faculty, academic programs, facilities and financial aid to make this happen.”
