As we celebrate the Best of Sac State and as another class of graduates commemorate their laudable achievements at this year’s commencement, there is less to be celebrated in the year the University itself has had. As students, we want to take pride in our University. So why does this seem so diff...

Over and over (and over and over), different branches of Sacramento State’s leadership have done the bare minimum to serve the students who justify the University’s existence. Sometimes, they don’t even do the bare minimum. A state audit of the health and safety practices at Sac State found that the Univer...

In an era of decreased local journalism, the proliferation of the term “fake news” to refer to legitimate organizations, and more information shared on the internet than can be consumed, student newsrooms on college campuses are more vital than ever. That is why The State Hornet is lending its ...

President Robert Nelsen would probably never invite Donald Trump to Sacramento State to speak at a banquet. But if he did, it would be very hard for campus community leaders to keep silent or shrug it off. Yet when Nelsen approved the April 28 visit of Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo — who leads...

Graduating students have a lot on their plates — passing their final round of classes, managing their allotted tickets between family and friends, planning graduation photos and a celebratory dinner, and buying all the appropriate robes, cords and stoles, to name a few.

A multi-million dollar organization on campus that gives students massive discounts on tuition and training in a multitude of skills is being categorically underutilized by the campus. It’s called Associated Students Inc., and it could change this campus if used to its capacity. As is, that is...

Of the graduates walking the stage at the end of this semester, many will be 22 years old, looking forward to what their lives after earning their degrees hold for them. Late on March 18, Stephon Clark’s life ended at 22, when a reported 20 rounds were fired at him by police as he was pursued into his backyard while holding only a cell phone. Clark was suspected of breaking into cars ...

It is an offensive and disturbing pattern of behavior that Sacramento State continues to shove its stinger in its own mouth when serious issues are raised. The most recent example is almost laughable, in that it was meant to be funny without containing a single ounce of legitimate humor. Whe...

It appears that before writing, codifying and ratifying an entire set of regulatory rules on recording any kind of audio or video on the Sacramento State campus, the school’s University Advancement office failed to do the most basic assignment given to any student — the homework.     RELATED:...
