Welcome to Student Affairs

Photo of Ed MillsWelcome to the Division of Student Affairs. With more than 50 departments and programs, we strive to provide comprehensive administrative services, academic support and a vibrant campus life experience for our students. The knowledgeable staff in our Academic Advising and Career Centers can help you plan out your academic studies and prepare you for your career. If you need a little help with your studies, visit our Peer and Academic Resource Center (PARC). Perhaps you are looking for ways to meet new people and get more involved on campus. Consider living on campus and visiting our Student Organizations and Leadership office.

But don't stop there—a great campus experience involves taking time out to focus on your health and well-being. Sacramento State boasts one of the premier health and fitness centers in California. Stop into The WELL to learn about the amazing programs and services available to you there. As an added bonus, Cal State's best student health center is located in the same complex. Whether you need a flu shot, twisted your ankle playing basketball or just need someone to talk to, the medical and counseling staff at Student Health & Counseling Services are here to help you.  

We have a very strong affiliation with our student government organization, Associated Students, Inc. (ASI). The students and staff in ASI provide a wealth of programs and services to the campus. I highly recommend that you visit their website or go to their office in the University Union. And hey, don't forget to attend some of the many plays, concerts and athletic events going on throughout the year.  

With more than 30,000 students, Sacramento State is a big campus with a lot going on. Just remember, we are here to help you make the most of your college experience. So study hard, get involved and take time out to focus on your health and well-being. If you do these few things, we can help you create a college experience you will treasure for the rest of your life. Enjoy!
