Magazine studio

Made at Sac State – The Video Magazine, Sacramento State’s award-winning television series, is back this spring with even more outstanding stories from California’s capital university.

Created and hosted by longtime Sacramento television reporter and Sacramento State Public Affairs executive producer Gloria Moraga, the acclaimed series tells the University’s story through the lens of its eight unique colleges. Shot throughout 2015, Season 2 of Made at Sac State – The Video Magazine takes viewers from the banks of the American River to the legislative chambers of the State Capitol and everywhere in between.

The Video Magazine is a labor of love for all of us who are involved in the project because it highlights student success and academic excellence,” Moraga says. “All of the videos document the very special way Sac State’s faculty members invest their time and knowledge to help our students succeed.”

Viewers can now stream every episode of Season 2 online for free at

Each of the season’s eight 30-minute episodes spotlights one of the University’s colleges – Arts and Letters, Business Administration, Continuing Education, Education, Engineering and Computer Science, Health and Human Services, Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies – and the students, faculty, and staff who are making a real-world impact in the capital region and beyond.

The series’ first season was a critical success, earning the California Association of Public Information Officials’ Excellence in Communications Award and an Influence Award from the Public Relations Society of America’s California Capital Chapter in 2014.

Season 2 builds on that momentum and delves even deeper into the people and stories that make Sacramento State the unique, dynamic, and influential institution it is today.

Highlights of Season 2 include a high-speed ride in Hornet Racing’s Formula SAE race car, a top-20 finisher in international competition in July 2015; a look inside the public policy process through the eyes of Capitol interns; insight into the groundbreaking research and farming methods at Sacramento State’s Sustainable Technology Optimization Research Center (STORC) that are changing the way food is grown for future generations; a peek backstage at how our student actors and dancers juggle their onstage duties with their academic endeavors; a view from behind the camera with Hollywood director Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed); and many more.

Audiences can access this season on the show’s newly redesigned site, where viewers can stream episodes, clips, and web extras on any web-enabled device, including smartphones and tablets.
