Campus Announcements

Memorial service for Patricia Sonntag
In response to numerous requests for information regarding services for Pat Sonntag, her family has advised the campus that there will be no public memorial service. However, her family is working closely with the campus to plan a fall memorial service. Donations in her honor may be made to any of the following organizations: California Disability Action Network, American Heart Association or the Diabetes Foundation.

Construction activities
Portions of parking lot 8 are out of service due to the construction of a new access road from State University Drive South (near the south Information Booth) to Parking Structure III. The access road will be complete and lot 8 will be in full service before the start of the fall semester.

The University is expanding many of the underground utilities and some of the digging will require disruption to pathways and roads. Every effort will be made to minimize these disruptions. Facilities Management apologizes for the inconvenience and appreciates the patience and continued cooperation of the campus community during this phase of these improvements to the University’s infrastructure.

A number of locations will be affected by the Infrastructure Improvement Project:

  • Work will continue on the inner-campus Sinclair Road, from Riverside Hall to the intersection of Moraga Way. Pedestrian paths may periodically close. Alternates routes will be available.
  • Beginning June 19, excavation will occur in the old roadway just north of the University Union. Access to delivery areas on the east side of University Union and the Library may be detoured.
  • Trenching in the west lane of State University Drive West will start June 19 from the intersection of State University Drive West at Sinclair and continue past the baseball field in the west lane of State University Drive West. Traffic control will be enforced at this site from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • The following week, starting June 26, the west section of Parking Lot 1, adjacent to Facilities Services will be closed for excavation and utility installation.

Class schedules made easy
A new tool to help make class scheduling simpler is available to students by using the Sac State Scheduler. This is an easy to use, web-based product that will help students quickly schedule classes and other important activities before registering on CasperWeb. With the Sac State Scheduler, students can search for and select courses by accessing the online Class Schedule. This tool will find all possible schedule combinations. Students can just tell it what they want and customize it their way. It will tell them when they can or can’t take a class.

Once students have chosen their preferred classes, they should check back in with the Sac State Scheduler right before their registration appointment to make sure all their requested classes are still available. Sac State Scheduler is available now at www.csus.edu/scheduler.
