On Saturday, October 1, Spanish-speaking students and their families attended Feria de Educación at Sacramento State. A partnership between the CSU Latino Initiative and Univision, the nation's leading Spanish-language media company, the college education fair provides information on how to prepare for, be admitted to, and succeed in college.

Students and parents participated in educational workshops on financial aid, career options and college admission, met college representatives, and learned about community resources that support college readiness.

Other highlights included a children's book giveaway and a visualization activity in which students had their photo taken while wearing the uniform of a profession they might want to pursue, such as a physician or judge.

The CSU is committed to fostering a culture of college readiness and success among the diverse communities it serves. Feria de Educación aims to increase Latino and Hispanic students' access to higher education and improve college graduation rates by raising awareness among younger students of the importance of pursuing a degree.
