Campus Announcements

Sign up
Sacramento State’s digital sign on Highway 50 went into operation the morning of Aug. 5 and it’s already generating a lot of interest. Faculty and staff are welcome to submit messages for the sign, but there are criteria and, as more requests are processed, time and space on the sign will become limited.

Information about the sign, its messages and its impact on the University and community may be viewed at

Go to for specific criteria for posting a message. For a form to have your information considered for placement on the sign, go to The request will be reviewed to determine if your message falls within the sign policy.

The sign, owned by Clear Channel Outdoor and constructed on University property through a 25-year lease, displays messages promoting Sacramento State’s programs, events and achievements.
