Dorm closure & graduation are at the SAME TIME in the afternoon on same day! LUNACY!!! NO available parking (but lots of parking tix issued!) Very poor planning even though parents complain every year.

We had planned a visit to watch the Lady Hornets play basketball. The campus is full of beautiful trees and right next to a river. Folks were very friendly. At this writing they are building more dorms but the latest one standing is really nice, I'd go here if I were a college student. Surrounding area has lovely homes, some... More

They have a beautiful tree exhibit near the front of the campus. It does not match the capital but has several perks and some really interesting trees. The big benefit is that is quiet and free. Well there is parking I guess but time well spent with a nice cup of coffee and a book.

We have visited campus several times--always a gorgeous journey through the amazing trees. The students and staff are incredible. The bookstore is fantastic! Great Apple section if you need help.

The campus is worth your time, especially if you have a family member considering going on to college. The campus is really lovely and one can have a very pleasant walk. Buildings have a variety of displays.

CSUS or better known in Sacramento as "Sac State" has approximately 30,000 students Fall 2015. I would highly recommend that if you are looking for an institution of higher learning that you visit this university. I have been very impressed with the faculty and administration.

We visited Sacramento State University. When one arrives on campus, there is a visitor office to go to to ask questions about one's visit to the campus. This is a nice campus with an arboretum area, sports fields, campus education buildings, and so forth. There is also good public transportation to and from the University

The general education programs are diverse. Most programs in Humanity, English, Music, Languages are challenging. CSUS prepares many teachers, police training is well noted. The grounds are shaddy,and the atmosphere is quiet and studious. Library, in humanities is superior.Music programs and concerts are excellent
