Students encouraged to arrive early for Saturday's Sacramento State game

Students attending the first home football game Saturday against Sacramento State at 1 p.m. are encouraged to get to Folsom Field early and enjoy all the gameday festivities.
A few of the pregame highlights include a visit to Ralphie’s Corral, located just south of Benson Earth Sciences, where Ralphie herself arrives at 10:15 a.m. and will be available for photo opportunities. Or stop by to grab a glance of her until about 30 minutes before kickoff. 

Bear visits campus, prompts reminder about bear safety

After roaming around the area for a while, the bear settled next to a tree for approximately 30 minutes. It then scaled the tree shortly after noon and rested on a branch about 35 feet up, and remained there until some time Thursday night when it decided to come down and leave the area.
