UNIQUE Programs is the entertainment programming board for The University Union, comprised of approximately 60 Sac State student volunteers who plan, promote, and produce exciting on-campus entertainment of all varieties. The volunteers are involved in everything from the selection, promotion, production, and evaluation of events. The goal of UNIQUE Programs is to provide innovative, quality entertainment at a low cost to enhance the campus life here at Sacramento State.
