Civil Engineering students shine in national contest
Sacramento State's Civil Engineering students have won first place in regional competition and fifth place nationally in this year's Big Beam Contest sponsored by PCI, the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute. The team won $1,000 and defeated three-time national champion Oregon State University. Faculty advisor Professor Eric Matsumoto commended the team's "initiative, creativity, resourcefulness and teamwork."

A smarter way to park: A new system for daily and two-hour parking permits allows motorists at Sac State to get permits using their cell phones. "We're at the leading edge of this pay-by-plate movement," said Tony Lucas, senior director of University Transportation and Parking Services. "Pay-and-display is kind of a dying technology."
Election trackers: Sac State's Center for California Studies and its Institute for Social Research have once again collaborated with California's Secretary of State's Office to gather local election results in one database. The California Elections Data Archive is the state's only comprehensive repository of local election results and one of only a few in the nation.
