D VEGA IS the front office she knowsDec 23 2009Education
D VEGA IS the front office she knows nothing. IN my 297 class she has lost 30 paper for advancement to candidacy. We all want her fired. I mean its like a chair turn to file paperwork how can it get lost? She is stupid, stupid. One of those needy person with a job at the state. If you follow stupid people home guess who will answer the door? We all have to make appointments to see the dean to get are paperwork re filed. We make 10 copies when we turn it in. Dont waste your time with this Special Education department. I mean they are beyond what you need if you want to focus on your thesis. You will be angry its NOT worth talking with them. I just ignore them like I cant here them I cant reason with stupid.I went to see the dean and my classmate Heather was there in the deans office for the same lost paperwork. It cost her $1,600, time off work. etc.In other countries if you steal they chop off fingers. I say if your not going to use your brain we should chop your head off. Still they refuse to do anything about it. I have started looking for tv stations to take the story. This is beyond crazy and they need to take responsibility for what they are paid for. We are spenidn our time fixing their mistakes. DO NOT ATTEND THIS UNIVERSITY and the instructors. Well find a favorite and stick with them. YOU will be very disppointed in your education your wasted time and energy and you will have learned nothing but what you taught yourself. GO IVY LEAGUE IT COST MONEY TO GET A GOOD EDUCATION.
I attended Sac State as an undergrad (notMay 19 2009Business - Management and Administration
I attended Sac State as an undergrad (not in business) and really enjoyed my experience. I think that most departments are really good, as is the university in general.

Unfortunately the business department has serious issues. Staff are leaving or being fired left and right, changes are being made in the program with little to no warning and no consideration of the students. They advertise concentrations then don't offer the classes required. There are a few decent teachers still left, but the current administration is horrible and too interested in their own politics. Some fellow students have had to postpone their graduation due to last minute schedule changes by the administration, or revoking special projects.

The VALUE is extremelyFeb 18 2009Business - Management and Administration
The VALUE is extremely good with this school. The costs are low and the facilities and most of the staff are great. Although this is not a top 10 university, it exudes academic quality. If you are considering this school, please visit and talk to faculty. You will be pleasantly surprised.

CSU, Sacramento was a worthwhile experience with a career waiting for me at the end.
