Scholarships keep students focused on grades and graduation
July 7, 2016 by Anita Fitzhugh
On the surface, the value of a Sac State scholarship may appear purely monetary. They pay for a student's tuition. They buy books and parking pases. But for more than 700 Sac State students who received close to a million dollars in scholarships last year, the funds provide much more than meets the eye. It is a step toward fulfilling a dream of becoming a college graduate.
Here, we introduce you to four Sac State students, who with the help of private scholarships are proud members of their families and the University. For more information on how you can help make an impact on a student's education, visit csus.edu/giving.

Sac State Food Pantry a model for fighting student hunger
June 27, 2016 by Anita Fitzhugh
A recent CSU conference addressing student hunger and homelessness is leading to the creation of more campus-based intervention programs such as the ASI Food Pantry at Sac State.
Currently, Sac State is one of 11 CSU campuses with a program or pantry in place to help provide hunger relief to students in need. In fact, the ASI Food Pantry is one of the priorities identified by the President's Circle giving society, a growing number of community members dedicated to joining President Robert S. Nelsen in supporting students and creating a stronger campus community.
