From what I have seen it looks like a good college the students are nice and there are multiple safety alarms around campus. I talked to current students and they all said the college was good and encouraged me to go to Santa Rosa JC. Overall the JC is a good college and I can't wait to go.

Santa Rosa Junior College is a beautiful campus with a lot of resources available for its students to achieve their academic goals. The teaching is environment is amazing for the class size tends to be relatively small or average. I like that Santa Rosa Junior College strives to maintain a low student to teacher ratio because it makes the learning experience so much easier and allows the students to ask questions and be active in lectures.

Zoe - 01/13/2021

Being an older, returning student, having lived overseas and traveled extensively, I can say with some degree of authority that Santa Rosa Junior College is one of the top notch schools in the world. All of the ancillary staff is extraordinary- there is a real caring for the student, and a strong will for our success. The professors are almost uniformly excellent, with the few who might be slightly less than fabulous merely lacking perhaps in social graces (I'm thinking of several STEM professors who might be on the neuro-diversity spectrum). The professors know their stuff, and they love to share their knowledge! The educational partnership I felt from my professors was hugely influential in my transferring with a very high GPA, which supports my continued success. I feel both lucky and privileged to have attended Santa Rosa Junior College.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would love to go back in time to talk to myself and many of my other classmates, not only to tell them of times to come but to ask them, and myself to look at ourselves clearly. Times change much too fast for us not to know ourselves and consider our own minds before leaving to a place we are not familiar with. I would have told myself to let the chips fall where they may, instead of constantly stressing to stop them from falling at all, and maybe then enjoyed more and stressed less. But this is one fact that we all must learn from experience, so perhaps I would not go back at all.

    Students always are bombarded by useful tips to succeed in college, however the one tip I was never told was the importance of meeting at least one person in every class. Unexpected events come up in college, and the ability to call somebody from every class makes overcoming these events so much more simple. These acquaintances can help in so many aspects of college, from copying their notes from the previous class, to becoming homework partners, and having an alli is priceless.

Berkley is known as the Cal Bears and because of our ties we are known as the Bear Cubs. We are the little Berkley.
