Parents Wellness Safety and Jobs


As a parent of a soon-to-be college student, it is important to know about the programs and services each college offers. Here are some tips on how you can get to know Sac State better.
  1. Check out our website. Be sure to review the University's website and related links that describe the academic experience, student life, and health and wellness. Also, be sure to click the various "buttons" on the College Portrait site as they have been designed especially for new students and their families. Our website is also a great way to find important dates and deadlines for applying to the university and financial aid.
  2. Visit our campus. Covering more than 300 acres, Sac State is located in a residential area of Sacramento. Before you visit, arrange for a campus tour. During your campus tour, you will see numerous computer labs with the latest technology, our expansive library, the University Union and our classrooms. With a student-to- faculty ratio of 27:1, our faculty will get to know your student.
  3. Ask around. Did you know that one in 26 capital region residents is a Sac State alumnus? Many Sac State grads are working as teachers, law enforcement professionals, and in offices/ departments at the Capitol. In fact, there are many Sac State alumni working on campus.
