Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

CSUS offered me an unforgettable higher education experience. As a first generation college student, Sac State greatly helped me transition through their EOP (Educational Opportunity Program) . I felt connected to the campus and faculty immediately. The professors I had over 5 years were always available for support and easily able to contact and reach out to. My psychology professors especially were amazing, specifically my Cross Cultural Psychology professor. The campus itself is nestled in versatile and diverse city that only makes the university that much more attractive. CSUS prepared me to begin my Masters Program at New York University in the Fall of this year.

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2016

I went to Sacramento State straight out of high school planning to be a nurse, however I took many of the prerequisite courses and when I took one in Child Development it completely changed my mind about the career I wanted because there is no guarantee into the nursing program. I decided to switch because this major intrigued me and the professors were really passionate about the field. I finished in 5 years but it could have been 4 years if I knew what I wanted to do sooner and went full time each semester. Professors offer real life scenarios throughout the course so you have real examples from someone who has been in the field and not just information straight out of a book. I also took a minor in Counseling and I love that department too because it provides an insight into yourself and really opens your eyes. I might just go back for a Masters in Counseling still. Parking can be a nightmare especially if there is traffic. There are many great places on campus to get food and drink including Starbucks! The book store always has great deals on supplies and apparel, I always check out clearance prices first.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

I transferred to Sacramento State after attending other colleges. Due to impaction, I switched my major from business to sociology. I graduated early with Summa Cum Laude, but will be continuing my graduate studies at Pepperdine University. The lack of financial aid available to me at Sacramento State, as well as the limed career opportunities with my desired salary in the Sacramento area have encouraged me to study elsewhere.

Degree: Film/Cinema/Video Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

While I was attending, Sacramento State was a fairly quality school. The professors I was engaged with throughout the film program were knowledgeable, passionate, and resourceful. One of my teachers is my advisor to this day as I prepare for grad school. It is truly unfortunate that the budget is not better managed. In my final years, numerous classes I needed were impacted, considering the film program was still fairly new to the system while I was there. The Art program was even more competitive in terms of class times (I double majored). While classes were harder to acquire due to professors being underpaid, large sums of money were sent to a fitness center that working students rarely used. And parking was nearly impossible if you were a commuter student. Did I love my education at Sac State? Yes. But I was still happy to get out. Maybe it has improved since I have been there, but if you are considering enrolling at Sac State I would highly consider visiting the campus and asking present students about enrollment first.

Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Sacramento State is one of the most diverse as well as one of the most beautiful state campuses in California. The Kinesiology in education program prepares you for the real world and it is recognized as a CSET competent program. It is a great place to earn an education and work toward your careers goals. The department staff is tremendously helpful and is always willing and available to help. Also, the relationships you build with fellow students are friendships that will last for a lifetime. The ethnically diverse campus is a great place to create and build strong networks which focus on Northern California.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The social work undergraduate program at Sacramento State University is worth the commitment. Staff are always receptive and willing to help; staff go above and beyond to help you success in the courses. A component of this program that sets it apart from others is the fieldwork requirement. During your last year as an undergrad in the program you will be placed at a community site and given the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in the social work practice setting. Not only is this a great learning opportunity, but it allows you to network and build connections helpful in succeeding as a graduate.

Degree: Spanish
Graduation Year: 2016

My professors were always very helpful and available during their office hours. My experience in the Spanish department was enjoyable. As a non-native speaker, I was encouraged to participate and interact with native speakers in conversation groups. I loved my Humanities department! All of my professors encouraged student participation, class discussions and did not rely solely on lectures. I think the course materials for both programs were well-rounded and enjoyable.

Degree: Gerontology
Graduation Year: 2015

I fondly refer to CSUS as "University of Diversity." There is such a rich culture within the school that comes from the accumulation of varying ethnicities, social backgrounds, and unique ideas that creates exceptional opportunities for its students.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2013

Sacramento State offers a diverse campus with the necessary resources to meet all student's needs. The campus has a lively vibe and a great learning facility for students in all academic fields. During my time as an undergrad I did most of my studying in the library, which included desktop access. The staff is readily available for office hours when needed and the subject matter was challenging and relevant to the modern needs of the workplace. The Business Administration department had several outstanding instructors and a few that weren't as good but still provided solid information. Courses that I didn't receive the highest grades were often the most beneficial in their uses outside of class. The gym facilities and food options make the campus an all inclusive habitat for continuing students.
