A hidden gem among California Schools. Seems mostly like a locals' school, although there are some out-of-town students. Has good programs in Business, Computer Science, and Criminal Justice, among others. I had a very good feeling about this school when I walked around the campus. Clean, well-organized school. Consider it!

    For my experience at Sacramento State University, it has been a great experience, and I would give it a nine at this point. I am an older student and the professors seem to value my points when I want to make a comment on a topic that they are speaking on. Some policies should be ammended such as the emergency funds.

    As a campus composed of mainly commuting students, Sacramento State has a surprising amount and variety of campus events to keep students motivated, interested, and entertained, including food events, music, and student success events. Sacramento State's typically small class sizes allow more one-on-one attention with professors and more individualized learning than would be accessible at a larger university. Furthermore, campus resources are extensive to aid students in nearly any way possible, including mental and physical health services at the WELL, tutoring and academic support in various areas and departments on campus, and access to food or other needs for students who are struggling financially.

    I like the campus a lot, its big, clean, and has everything you need with lots of trees. The major im in, CS, has some pretty good professors but they can still improve, same goes for the GE professors. The best part about it is the gym because you can go work out any time you have free time between classes.

    I transferred here from a community college. Sac State is a great school!. Excellent place if you want to be northern california without the insanely expensive cost of living.

    California State University Sacramento is a perfect college for anyone tying to get their degree and move onto the bigger world out there. They treat their students with first top priority and make sure they get the kind of education that each student deserves no matter what their major is. This college is one of the cheaper universities out there which makes it affordable and gives out the greatest opportunities to anyone admitted.

    This campus is absolutely beautiful. The greenery and scene of the campus is something very different than what I was used to coming from Southern California. The ability to see the seasons change with the leaves has been so different and refreshing for me these past 4 years.

    There's a lot of things CSUS is great for. There are also plenty of things that it is bad for. Take the time to find out if this school is really worth your time and money before enrolling.
