Hornet Alumni to Launch Policy & Politics Networking Group
By Josh Rosa and Maya Wallace
There is a “campus feeling” to downtown Sacramento where political, public affairs, government and communications professionals tend to overlap through countless bonds that make the “Capitol community” a community.
One of those bonds is Sacramento State, the alma mater to thousands of graduates leading careers “on the Grid,” in and around the State Capitol.
Sac State alumni in these fields are organizing a new networking group called the Hornets Policy & Politics Alumni to collaborate and advance professional development opportunities for alumni and revive Sacramento State’s brand as closely tied in to the nerve centers of California politics and governance.
The new group launches with a kick-off reception on April 12 at Cafeteria 15L.
Where alumni groups typically host events on the Sac State campus, Policy & Politics deliberately chose a downtown venue to emphasize the university’s presence in the Capitol community and to signal our intention in making networking easy and Capitol-focused.
I became an alumnus when I finished my Master’s Degree in Public Policy and Administration at Sacramento State in 2008. But before that, my career in Sacramento had already taught me how significantly Sac State contributes to the workings of state government and politics as well as the local life and culture of Sacramento. Hornets Policy & Politics will leverage the university’s unique role into new social and professional networks for alumni and non-alumni alike, and hopes to give the university its due as an academic and social fixture in Sacramento.
