Life in Sacramento
California's capital university is in the heart of the state's political, economic, and cultural center. Our students come here to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others, to find and develop their passions, and to live those passions beyond the classroom.
Take a walk along the snaking, tree-lined pathways to find students poring over papers spread out on cafe tables, lounging in vast, grassy quads, and heading to any of the hundreds of on-campus events each semester. Beyond campus, Sacramento – the nation's "Farm to Fork" capital – is home to a one-of-a-kind gastronomic scene, prominent professional sports franchises, a vibrant arts and music culture, and exciting nightlife. Natural amenities on and off campus offer outdoor adventures of every sort: Biking and hiking trails, rivers, lakes, and mountains make up the city's backyard.
