A very diverse community and very inclusive. With many programs to enroll and participate in for the students well being and mental being.
I'm currently transferring from Sacramento state to a nursing school, but my overall experience with sac state has been great. The campus is beautiful with all the trees, there's a lot of walking but hey there were elevators to help get up and down the buildings. I was in the honors program, so most of the professors and advisors I had in that program were amazing. They took the time to genuinely help figure out which classes are the best to take considering my uncertainty with getting into sac state's nursing program. Almost all my professors, one of them was the dean of undergrads (not sure if he still is), were understanding, passionate about their subjects, and genuinely cared about what we learned. The community at sac in general is very welcoming to everyone even those just visiting the campus for the day. I enjoyed my time at sac, however I know some classmates who weren't in the program experienced a lot of troubles with not getting the right classes they needed.
The campus is beautiful, the faculty and staff are extremely helpful and genuinely care for your success and well being. I 100% recommend this university.
As a first year student living on campus, I absolutely love all of the greenery on campus. I have not lived in Sacramento before but the environment as a whole is amazing with the weather, greenery, diversity of the community. My professors have been really great so far too!
Sac state is a really nice and welcoming school for people interested in science majors or history/ government majors. It has many resources open to its students making it easy to find jobs, once out of college!
Being a transfer student, I was scared of being a new university student. But, the family here at Sacramento state has welcomed me with open arms. There are many resources on campus for those from all walks of life. There are over 1,000 clubs on campus, many resources, and professors who want you to succeed. A crucial backbone any student needs when pursuing a higher education. All of my professors have been very helpful and support me like no other. Sacramento state provides students with many off campus resources as well. For example, my nursing professor connected me to a volunteering opportunity at a local hospital! A lush green environment makes me feel cozy and safe. One critical fact about Sacramento state is that the on-campus police is available 24/7 to walk you to your class, car, etc. A major factor to consider when choosing a college. Student life is also very welcoming with happy and engaging classmates everywhere you turn. Great mental health resources also available!
I have been at Sacramento State for over three months now. I am really truly enjoying my on-campus living. This is the first time I’ve been on my own. I am growing into my own independence and learning how to be on my own. The campus is very beautiful there several restaurants on campus like Starbucks and panda express. Also, I thought I Would have a hard time with the cafeteria food. However, the food is very tasty and there are tons of varieties.
I love how the campus looks, it isn't too big and it isn't too small. There are a lot of food and drink places to relax at. There is a lot of greenery and beautiful buildings. A lot of people are attending though, so it is very packed.
This college is honestly much better than I had initially thought. During freshman orientation, I had an amazing orientation leader who helped me get accustomed to the campus and situated with my classes. The library, student union, and WELL were all really impressive and are free to use for students and alumni. Some of the classrooms are really spacious and modern, while others look like they haven't aged since the 90s or early 2000s. Most of my professors also seem really nice and do a good job of teaching, although I've heard some students say otherwise. Clubs were a bit disappointing in my opinion since I had really high hopes of making a ton of friends, which hasn't happened at all. The people who go here don't really talk to you unless you talk to them, so take that as you will. Overall, I would say this college is a good choice and a cheaper alternative for those who live in/near Sacramento or those who want to experience Sacramento while not completely breaking the bank.
It is hard to encapsulate a place that has seen the absolute worst and best moments of my life into words. Sac State has quickly become my home over the past few years. I found my best friends the very first day of move-in freshman year in fact. Here I have fought, struggled, loved, and continued to find joy in my learning. Every day I am thankful for the diverse opportunities this school provides me.
I really love the campus. The greenery and all of the helpful resources they provide to the students is amazing. The professors here are really helpful and professional.
Great experience. Love the diversity, atmosphere, people and staff. Stingers up! I wanted to stay close to home and sac state is what I’ve been looking for.
It's a lovely school. There are a lot of things to do and many wonderful people here. The professors in my classes are very helpful and want you do to well. You will definitely get your steps in while on campus. Everyone has been very nice and welcoming.
Very nicely organized after COVID. The professors offer more online courses, and they now post their lectures online. There are lots of classes to pick from.
CSU Sacramento is a great place for students to pursue an undergraduate education. There are multiple clubs, events through the University Union and College of Business, and sport events to attend. The only real complaint I have is the parking situation: where there is heavy traffic at peak times and parking sports are diminishing year after year.
Sacramento state was a very wonderful experience! Students and faculty are all welcoming and are academically driven. Some things that I like include the amount of extracurricular activitites, programs, and a well maintained state of the art facility.
One thing that I really enjoyed about Sacramento State was that because its not a large school, we were able to have small classes. For these classes we were able to build a bond with our professors. Most of my classes were about 30-40 students but there were sometimes when my classes were 50+. But quite rare. Some terrible things was that it is a commuter campus, this meaning it has heavy traffic on some days. There is limited access to the campus so the streets back up. The parking can be very hard on Tuesdays and Thursdays specifically, because these are the most requested classes. Then finding parking is quite hard and can be quite tedious. There was one time I took 2 hours to get to campus and missed first day of classes, I only live 30 mins from campus.
