California State University - Sacramento Reviews
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 First, the school seems a little outdated. For example, many of the academic buildings have not been remodeled since the 60's, giving the school an old and outdated appearance.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!
So far, I've had nothing but a positive experience! All the staff I've met have been so helpful and seem genuine in their drive to help me succeed! The gym is absolutely amazing, the campus is clean, you get free public transportation with the bus system and light rail, there's a building open 24 hours for those who wish to study (and it has security so you feel safe), and there's a plethora of clubs to choose from. So happy I belong to this school!
