California State University-Sacramento Reviews
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.
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.
CSUS is a great university that is there to help you obtain your degree every step of the way. This is a great university for students seeking diversity on the campus and in there education. The campus is very beautiful. CSUS is one of the few campuses full of trees.
I believe that Sacramento State has given me countless opportunities to grow not only as a student but also as a person and a potential full-time employee in the future. The faculty, staff, and students constantly engaged me in challenging conversations and thought-provoking exercises, which helps strengthen our ability, as a whole campus, to practice open-mindedness, respect, and understanding. This demonstrates the beauty of Sacramento State University where learning and leadership begins.
The college offers as much support as a student is willing to seek. It's a supportive atmosphere with many excellent, knowledgeable professors.
"It's never too late to return to school" has taken on new meaning. I am a 44-year-old single mother. I was nervous about transferring to Sac State from a community college but it turned out to be one of the best decisions ever. They offer so much support in all areas. One thing I strongly suggest is applying to the mentor program as a mentee during your first semester. The information received from a current student that shares your major is absolutely priceless! With their knowledge, combined with an academic advisor's experience and research agenda, you will be on the fast track towards your degree and graduation.
Honestly, Sac State blew my expectations away. The history faculty is really wonderful, and our department is one of the few working diligently to create a more inclusive, culturally diverse platform for understanding history. While I was not a graduate student (only completed my undergrad here) the graduate program seems absolutely amazing. You will get your money's worth out of your education if you are willing to put in the work. Dr. Cohen, Dr. Rose, Dr. Reed, and so many more are top-notch instructors. Also, very little impaction for this major! I transferred into Sac State in 2014, and will be graduating this semester, finishing my BA in exactly two years!
CSU Sacramento is a well rounded university offering diverse opportunities both academically and in extracurricular opportunities.
I really enjoyed being able to create my own schedule. I am not a morning person, so I usually didn't start class until 10:00 am, some semesters I started at noon. It was great. I also enjoyed meeting people that were different from who I normally would meet in high school. For example, there are older people in class with you, ROTC kids, etc. - lots of people with different backgrounds, jobs, and experiences that were interesting to hear about.
College is a great social experience and not just about education.
