Collection of Essays Written by Fresno City College Students
About Ourselves, a collection of student essays selected and published each year by the faculty of the Fresno City College Developmental / Preparatory English Department.
The essays were written by students at Fresno City College in response to assignments in Developmental English courses.
The About Ourselves editorial staff publishes the works with minimal editing only. Though mechanical errors are still present, we hope that these essays will be used as learning tools for the writers and their readers.
