Campus Visits for Grades K-4th

Introducing the college experience to our youth at a young age is an excellent idea!  We have found that these youngsters get excited at how enormous the campus is and enjoy exploring Sac State with their classmates while challenging themselves to some age-appropriate activities.

As an open campus, you are welcome and encouraged to come and explore.  While we do not offer guided tours for this age group, we do have a self-guided tour booklet that can be downloaded for use in tailoring a walking tour of the sights you feel would be most appropriate for your group.

You may also want to check the campus calendar of events when planning your visit to maximize your group's experience.

Downloadable Activities:

Several campus departments offer their own tours - please contact them directly.  If you have a specialized program, idea or request, you are welcome to contact us to discuss how we can assist.
