Sac State is up and running strong after unprecedented closure

ASI Food Pantry Sacramento State, after responding to massive fallout from a wildfire unprecedented in its destruction and lethality, is back up and running, working toward finals and the end of the fall semester – and providing full student services.

The University closed Nov. 13-21 to help shield the campus community from the effects of heavy smoke produced by the Camp Fire, a blaze that at last report had burned 153,336 acres and caused 85 deaths. The smoke engulfed huge swaths of Northern California, including Sac State, creating historically bad air quality. Although the campus was shut down, some critical services remained available, such as the Associated Students Inc.
