Feria de Educación fuels college dreams in record numbers
Sacramento State welcomed a record crowd of more than 6,000 Latinx students and their family members on Saturday, Oct. 13, for Feria de Educación, a one-day education workshop designed for Spanish speakers looking ahead to college.
The free event, now in its sixth year, is a partnership among Sacramento State, the California State University, and Spanish-language television network Univision. It offers informational workshops, vendor booths, live entertainment, and campus tours for K-12 students and their families.
“The success of this year’s Feria de Educación is the result of five years of assessing the event, its various components, and the needs of our Spanish-speaking community,” says Viridiana Diaz, assistant vice president of strategic diversity initiatives.
