The university enjoys an ideal location in the heart of California’s Central Valley, a short distance from the San Francisco Bay Area, Monterey, Big Sur, the Sierra Nevada and the governmental hub of Sacramento. The 228-acre campus is located in the City of Turlock, a community that prides itself on its small-town atmosphere, clean living space, excellent schools and low crime rate. The campus itself is a beautiful, park-like setting, shaded by hundreds of trees and graced by ponds, trickling streams and waterfalls.

Sports facilities

We conduct multiple sports leagues for six weeks at a time concurrently between the start of the semester until the end of the semester.  We then hold the playoffs and championship games for those sports at various times prior to the end of the semester.  This allows the participants to play multiple sports during the course of the semester.
