CSUS makes Yahoo's 'wired colleges' list

California State University, Sacramento is among the nation's top 200 most "wired colleges," according to the annual rankings released this month by Yahoo Internet Life magazine.

CSUS was the 120th among more than 1,300 universities surveyed, the magazine said. That put CSUS fourth among CSU campuses (behind San Francisco State, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Cal Poly Pomona) and 12th in the state.

The online and print magazine considered six categories when developing its rankings.

It gave CSUS the highest mark for "e-learning" and another high mark in "student resources," both areas in which the University has focused its efforts. CSUS now offers more than 30 Web-based classes each semester and more than 150 other classes feature websites with interactive quizzes and other features. The CasperWeb service provides online access to student records, personalized academic progress reports, financial aid information and more.

The University scored above average in the "Web portal" and "infrastructure" categories, and lower in "wireless" and "tech support."
