  • Get Involved!

    As a program, we strive to give back to our local Sacramento community. One way be achieve this is participating in the annual Great American River Park Clean-Up where students beautify the American River by collecting and disposing of trash.

  • "Honors" Means Family

    Each year our students take on one of the largest corn mazes in California, the Dixon Corn Maze! In 2015, students from Cohorts 7, 8, 9, and 10 conquered the maze once again!

  • Experience Study Abroad

    The Honors program strongly encourages its students to study abroad. Not only does Sacramento State offer study abroad programs, but the Honors Program offers trips to places like Costa Roca, Paris, and Hong Kong where students spend two - three weeks immersing themselves into a new culture while earning transferrable college credit.

  • Honors Ball

    Honors Ball is one of the most beloved events for students, faculty, and staff! A fantastic annual celebration at the end of each Spring semester, Honors Ball, is a wonderful opportunity for students to dance the night away with their peers. Pictured are six alumni from Cohort 1 as well as Dr. Greg Wheeler and Dr. Roberto Pomo with his wife Gail Pomo.
