California State University - Sacramento Reviews
Review California State University - Sacramento
Sacramento is a big college with plenty to offer students. There are plenty of majors and courses available to suit any prospective students interests. The campus is sprawling and has plenty of lovely trees and wildlife (there are even turkeys on campus). In addition, the students and faculty are very diverse and welcoming, all students are greeted with open arms. The large number of students can make the experience feel impersonal at times, but if you're interested in being active in campus and student life, Sacramento eventually feels like a big family!
Overall, I would say it's a decent school. Not the worst, but there's definitely better schools out there. First, the school seems a little outdated. For example, many of the academic buildings have not been remodeled since the 60's, giving the school an old and outdated appearance. Also, some courses don't have enough professors teaching the subject. One course that may be required for graduation, only has one professor teaching it. This leads to students not being able to get the classes that they need for a timely graduation date. The school needs to invest in more professors!
Better than most, worst than most. Therefore, just right... Academic wise; it gets the job done. College life; none. Professors here are great and most are understanding. If you put in the work then there's no excuse for a failing grade. Location is pretty terrible as traffic becomes hectic during the start of the semester. Food is alright as they're expanding. Facilities are old and run down, but they do their best to accommodate. Overall, if you don't want to waste most of your earnings paying off college loans, then this is the school for you. Oh and beautiful campus. Trees, tress, tress!
