Elevate your impact on our Hornet Family

Sacramento State University has proudly honored the achievements of its 250,000-plus alumni since the university’s inception in 1947.

The Sacramento State Alumni Association engages and celebrate those alumni and connect them with each other, current students, and friends of Sacramento State by building lifelong relationships that will support the future of Sacramento State.

After graduation, our Hornets possess the skills, work ethic, and knowledge necessary to pursue successful careers in nearly every field locally, nationally, and abroad. More than 60 percent of Sac State alumni remain in the Sacramento region, providing a rich source of skilled workers and dynamic leaders to our region. Our alumni also provide a wealth of knowledge for current students through important programming such as career workshops, life-skill training, and professional networking. Additionally, the Sacramento State Alumni Association offers alumni a place to return to during life or career transition and provides them with a powerful platform to reconnect with fellow Hornets so they can strategically advance the next phase of their lives.

From freshman entering the world of higher education for the first time to experienced professionals wishing to share their Hornet legacy, the Sacramento State Alumni Association offers a wide breadth of activities that keep alumni, and the Sacramento community, connected to our university.

With a gift to the Sacramento State Alumni Association, you can have a tremendous impact on thousands of lives in our region and embolden the Sacramento State legacy for generations to come.
