I recently visited Sacramento State University while participating in the annual run to feed the Hungry on Thanksgiving. What a lovely campus. I especially enjoyed walking over the Guy West pedestrian suspension bridge over the American River.

I'm slightly biased about this campus, however, I would argue that the proximity to the rive is the best thing going. Opportunities for recreation are in abundance on this campus and surrounding areas. Students enrolled prior to 2010 have full access to "The Well," a...More
