  • Beautiful campus on the river. Close to Light Rail and buses, and getting to the American River Bike Trail couldn't be easier. There are three gated bike parking compounds that have an attendant present during the school day. At night you can have a security officer drive you to your car if you'd rather not walk there alone. Wifi is available across campus.
  • Spent the last 5 years here! It's a beautiful campus! Many choices for undergrads and the best part is that I didn't have to to move since it's here in Sacramento!
  • I have been a student here for five years and this place is expensive and doesn't offer slot for your money. Tuition is high and it is expensive just to take one lame class-it is like $1,000 for one class(I don't know the exact amount). The teachers aren't that interesting and helpful. The employees there aren't that friendly and aren't that thrilled to be there. Books are expensive. Not a lot of clubs and fraternities. The clubs and organizations aren't that exciting and fun. Not a lot of free services offered to students. The well isn't that awesome and you have to pay a lot of money to take yoga classes and stuff at the well. Not a lot of free, cool events there. The place is sad and depressing and I suffer from anxiety and sadness because of the school as I have bad experiences during my years there that I won't ever forget. I am not a professional, so please don't hate me. This is my personal opinion that I am expressing to the world. If I ever necessary rich and famous then I will mock and disrespect this school if the cameras are ever on me. I am not a professional, this is my personal opinion.
  • I love this campus, and I believe there are plenty of free programs and or programs that can help students. One thing I'm not understanding is how people claim the school is expensive? I thought it was one of the cheapest on my list to attend. The professors beleive in their students here, and I hope to get my undergrad degree in another year or so.
  • Cool campus to visit. Has a very woodsy vibe to it in the fact that there are tons of trees! Greek life is pretty much the main social scene. Without that it's hard to get to know a lot of people.
