Call the Visitors Center at (916) 278-4933 on any weekday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT). The Visitors Center is located on the bottom floor of Sacramento Hall near the front of the school. The staff has general information about campus and can get people into contact with assorted personnel for answers to more specific questions. There's also literature about Sac State, and campus tours begin in the lobby of the Visitors Center.
Campus Tours
You can check the availability on the school's website. Tours typically last an hour and are guided by a student or counselor. Individual tours take one person with up to five guests. The school tries to keep group tours composed of 25 people or less. Group tours must be scheduled at least a week in advance, but individual tours can be scheduled about 24 hours before. Self-guided tours are available as well, and printable maps for these excursions can be downloaded from the website.
