Sacramento State’s Super Sunday outreach to local churches has been so successful that it expanded to two Sundays this year – Feb. 17 and 24.
The project is part of the California State University system’s Super Sunday project, which schedules visits to churches in African American communities to provide information and advice on getting a college education to young people and their families.

Sacramento State President Alexander Gonzalez attended the service at St. Paul Baptist Church on Sunday, Feb. 17. Other University officials addressed parishioners at Antioch Progressive Baptist Church at 10 a.m. and at the 8 a.m., 10 a.m. and noon services of the Center of Praise Ministries that same day.
Another presentation took place at St. Andrews African Methodist Episcopal Church at 10 a.m. the following Sunday, Feb. 24.
In addition to the presentations during the services, representatives from Sacramento State’s Admissions and Outreach, Financial Aid and the Educational Opportunity Program were available afterward to hand out literature with information about applications, scholarships and loans, and to chat with prospective students and their parents.
