My sister attended Sac State and I frequently visited her on campus. The grounds are so beautiful, the gym is legit, and the roads around the campus are perfect for morning and afternoon runs because of how shaded the sidewalks stay from all the trees. So many people ride bikes and my sister and I would often bike to campus... More

I went to Sacramento state years ago, got my B.A there, but, have since returned with my younger sister and have to say, its a nice campus. Two roads go all the way around the campus. Parking is much better, and you can find parking structures or lots around most of the campus. They cost money to park.There are sooo... More

Disclaimer: I am a Graduate of Sacramento State Univ. Despite being a graduate of Sac State, I was very pleasantly surprised when I attended a football game. Hornet Football now offers multiple, gourmet food trucks at the their games. It was awesome. The only disappointment was there was no ice cream. Good stadium to watch football.

I've been on a lot of college campuses and this one ROCKS!!! My favorite part is the oak trees and large lawn that is perfect for studying when it's warm, eating lunch or a snack, or just throwing around a Frisbee or baseball.

I found it to be a good university with an excellent curriculum and I loved the selection of internships one could choose to pursue as part of their course plan.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

I got my secondary credential at Sac State in the mid 80's, and was impressed by the way it was structured. I was comparing it to Chico State, but it was much more hands-on and thus a much better preparation for what would be faced in an actual classroom. In the second semester of a two semester program, we had... More

I grew up in the area and have been on campus a few times, but never attended the university or anything. The campus is nice, lots of grassy areas and courtyards. However, if it is not a particularly impressive campus. It's rather standard, some buildings are nicer than others and have a nice design, but it's simple. There is not... More

I graduated from California State University, Sacramento (how I refer to it and what it still should be called) back in the late 80's. I still like to walk the campus sometimes because it is gorgeous. There are giant Blue Aptos Sequoia trees everywhere, along with a variety of other trees, a park-like atmosphere and close to the American River... More

I am a bit biased since I teach here, but this is also a beautiful designated "tree campus" recognized by the Arbor Day Tree Foundation. Anyone can take a lovely walk through campus and enjoy the beauty of wide open spaces and well cared for trees. Be sure to enjoy the pedestrian/bike bridge acrross the American River and the adjacent... More

My son graduated in '13 with a degree in Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration, one of the majors that's only found at a few schools in CA. We loved the campus from the first time we saw it, and the American River Courtyard dorms are very, very nice (not available to freshmen). As a transfer student the school did everything... More
