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.

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

When traveling to Sac I usually ride my bike on the river trail followed by a night stroll around the campus. I really enjoy walking around looking at the buildings and walking along the river near campus. I'll grab a game if there is one.

I attended a women's basketball game on January 17 in which Sacramento State took a 10-point loss to Idaho State. Despite the loss, I had a very enjoyable trip to the Hornets Nest (the basketball gym). It was a great atmosphere and I look forward to coming back next winter.

It's a very pretty area for riding bikes or walking around and there are lots of places to eat nearby as well as yummy crepes on campus.
