SAC Housing

SAC offers housing. Students are required to live on campus through senior year. First year students are guaranteed on-campus housing.

The majority of SAC students live on campus. In 2021, 71% of undergrads at SAC lived in some kind of on-campus housing and 29% of students lived off-campus or commuted to SAC. There are 1,097 spots available in on-campus housing for all 1,614 undergraduates. In the 2020-21 school year, 648 students chose to live on-campus. On the weekends, about 60% students stay on-campus. First year students are not allowed to park a car on campus.

SAC Athletics

At SAC there are a variety of athletic options for students interested in joining a sports program.

Intercollegiate sports are the highest tier of college sports and can be very competitive. Intercollegiate teams are regulated by the NCAA, funded by the university, and compete against teams from other universities. The division of a sports team depends on the size of the university, funding, and competition level. An intercollegiate school team will be Division I, II or III, with Division I being the highest level.

Club sports are not regulated by the NCAA and are a great option for students not interested in trying out for an intercollegiate team. Club sports are usually student run but can also be funded by the university.

Intramural sports are the most casual and informal. Intramural sports are often free and require very little time commitment.

Let's take a look at the athletic options available at SAC:

Is SAC Safe?

College is like a home away from home. Whether you're walking to class or coming back from late-night studying (or partying!), it's important to feel safe on campus. The SAC campus has emergency telephones or alarms for students to use anytime of day or night. The school also has student security patrols.

SAC offers late-night transportation or safety escorts for students. Dorms can only be accessed with secure key cards so that students can feel confident that they are safe in on-campus housing.
