Sacramento State offers a vibrant academic culture with a multicultural student body of 29,000. We graduate about 6,000 students each year. Despite our size, quality teaching in small classes remains a top priority. Students enjoy personalized attention from their professors with a student-faculty ratio of 21 to 1. Our park-like 300-acre campus has 3,000 trees and miles of trails along the nearby American River Parkway, which links the campus and campus residence halls with recreational areas such as Folsom Lake and Old Sacramento. Plus, Sacramento State is only a short drive from Lake Tahoe and San Francisco. Being located in the state capitol, our students have many opportunities for internships with business, industry and government organizations. Check out Sacramento State: Redefine the Possible.
