Sacramento State teamed with Univision 19, the California State University system and the Mexican Consulate of Sacramento to help students and their families from the Spanish-speaking community realize their college dreams by sponsoring the third annual Feria de Educación on Saturday, Sept. 26, in Serna Plaza and the University Union.

Thousands of participants from throughout the Sacramento region attended workshops on everything from college readiness and the role of parents to career opportunities and financial aid, and connected with dozens of college representatives, enjoyed live entertainment – and even had their pictures taken in the professional roles they hope to play in the future.

As a newly designated Hispanic-Serving Institution, Sacramento State is proud to host Feria de Educación. As President Robert S. Nelsen says, “It is never too early to begin thinking about higher education, and preparation is the key.”
