Sacramento's bar and club scene is very low-key compared to the ones in more prominent cities like nearby San Francisco. Still, it's not hard for students to make the most of what they've got. There's more to do than just go out to places where you have to pay for drinks and a cover charge; you can go to house parties, too, especially if you're part of a Greek organization. Frequently, classmates or co-workers get to know each other and throw parties. The employees of the student newspaper, for instance, have been known to have quite a few parties at each other's houses. If you're a fan of more intimate personal gatherings where you know most of the people, you might want to go the house-party route.
On the other hand, if you need strangers and bright lights, hit the streets. Sacramento has a large number of single people, and clubs and bars are the places to find them on the weekends. Students over 21 will have a much better time enjoying the nightlife than others, so your options are limited if you're young. However, some places definitely fill the need for 18-and-over night owls. Some students are disenchanted with the club scene because they see the same people over and over again, and others are skeptical about what kind of nightlife, if any, a city like Sacramento has. It's out there—you just have to look for it.
