Student leaders –

We hope you are getting excited for the Homecoming Week Festivities and the Hornet Football Game this Saturday, October 13th! Sacramento State is proud to welcome Hornets home to campus from all over the area. We have included in this message the Sacramento State Football Tailgating Policies to encourage a safe and spirited day at the stadium. Please be mindful of these policies as you plan your activities for this weekend.

Go Hornets!
