Campus Announcements

Summer’s over
This is a reminder that summer hours have ended and the University is back on its regular business hours schedule (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with an hour lunch) as of Aug. 25.

New comprehensive regulatory signs
New signs placed at five locations around Sacramento State are combining several safety warnings that were previously located on individual signs. The signs have information for bicycle riders, noting that bikes are restricted to designated operating and parking areas and not permitted in buildings or allowed to be parked in any manner that blocks access for disabled persons or creates a safety hazard.

The signs also warn those on campus that the use of some methods of transportation is prohibited. Skateboard, roller-blades, in-line skates, scooters and similar devices are prohibited because of concerns for pedestrian safety and property damage, and the signs have been installed to get the word out to the public and comply with sections of the California Vehicle and Education codes.

Signs have been placed southeast of Capital Public Radio on State University Drive East, north of College Town Drive; on State University Drive West, east of the exit to the Hornet Crossing; and on the west side of the Esplanade entrance to the campus south of J Street. Another is planned for the west side of the Guy West Bridge. The signs also reinforce regulations prohibiting firearms and soliciting.

My Sac State 2.0
Sacramento State’s My Sac State will have a different name and look this fall. My Sac State will be upgraded to My Sac State 2.0 and provide added capabilities, functionality and convenience.

The original My Sac State is still active, but will be replaced Sept. 16. On that date, users will notice a significantly different look and additional content. The change affects all Sacramento State students, faculty, staff and applicants. Since each member of the campus community has a Sac Link account, current log-in information and passwords will work on My Sac State 2.0.

Access to My Sac State 2.0 will be available from the web address today, Aug. 25. Users will be able to log on and become familiar with it before the cut-over from the existing version of My Sac State.

For more information on My Sac State 2.0, contact Information Resources and Technology at 278-7337.

Move-In Day
Prior to the start of classes each year, nearly 300 current student leaders spend their last Friday of summer welcoming 1,000 new students and their families to campus at the Residence Halls for Move-In Day.

This year we would like to extend the invitation to staff, faculty and administration to join us at Move-In Day. Don’t worry, there will be no heavy lifting involved, rather simply a presence to meet and greet our newest campus residents and their families. 

Interested members of the campus community should come to the Student Activities table in the Residence Hall quad on Friday, Aug. 29 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. because the first 50 can pick up their own official “Move-In Day” T-shirt.
