What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the facilities and academic aspects of the school are very good. Most of the professors are very approachable and patient. Even individual professors come to class sick and correct exam results very quickly. The shopping mall is in ​downtown is within 20 minutes' walk from the school without its own car. There are many bus routes to the city center at the school gate. So it's not that hard to get around the school. In catering, I think there is still room for improvement. The school also does not provide on-campus accommodation, so you need to rent your own house outside, but the housing price in the whole Santa Rosa area is relatively high.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a community college, Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) has an incredibly diverse and inclusive student population. While it is true there are students who attend the school because they were not academically strong enough to get into any other college, my experience is that this is the minority. Most of the students I have met fall into one of three categories: 1) they are very successful high school students opting to take more rigorous courses than those offered at their schools, 2) they are "returning" students who choose to continue learning well into their careers, or 3) they are recent high school graduates who decided to turn down their admission offers to 4-year universities in favor of saving money by attending SRJC first. The three groups are well integrated, and you will find yourself treated as an equal among people decades older and/or younger than you. Unfortunately, you will have to deal with the stigma of being a "community college" student, but the fact of the matter is your education will not suffer if you choose to attend SRJC over other schools. I transferred to the UC system and found that classes were, for the most part, quite easy compared to the courses I had taken at SRJC. They are particularly strong in the physical & life sciences, foreign language, math, and there are excellent opportunities for music majors. My experience has been that the social sciences are a bit weaker. The faculty at SRJC are stellar. All of the instructors I have taken courses from had terminal degrees in their fields, and since they aren't focused on writing grants for research, you get their full attention. Small class sizes mean every teacher will know your name. SRJC isn't for everyone. There is no Greek life, and there are not as many clubs as you would expect for a college with so many students. Most people live at home with their parents or are well beyond "college-aged," so there isn't much of a party scene. Also, if you are certain of your career path and know that you want to be involved in research, keep in mind that this is not a research institution, so you will not be able to participate in research until after you transfer. If your dream is to be part of the "college scene" represented in movies, you will be disappointed at SRJC. Otherwise, I would highly recommend the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

the Santa Rosa Junior College is a greta place for graduated high school students to go if they don't quite know what they want to yet. It is also great for saving money and adults who are coming back to school. The campus is nice and clean. Most of the faculty, is helpful and efficient.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SRJC is a campus full of diversity and motivated students. The campus is beautiful and offers various places to study underneath the towering oak trees. The class sizes range from small intimate classes to lecture sizes. The professors genuinely care about the students and strive to motivate you to keep going. I wish I didn't have to say farewell but it's time to transfer onto a 4-year university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love attending the Junior College. As a senior in high school, I applied to many Cal States and Universities and was accepted to many but decided to stay home and attend the JC for financial purposes. I love the campus, have been blown away by how accessible and helpful my professors are and overall so happy I chose this path and school. We have great professors who want their students to succeed and most people who attend the JC, didn’t chose to go there for the parties or frats, but to genuinely learn.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Junior College is the best school I have attended. It is very enjoyable, but is not easy. If you want to succeed, you have to work for it. Laziness does not pay off. That being said, the teachers are extremely supportive and friendly, and I would recommend many of them to my fellow students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great junior college to go to straight out of High School. It’s a great transition, as there are counseling classes available for incoming freshman to get introduced to the college life. There is also a great Health Services offered on campus for a very, low and affordable cost. Parking can be a challenge at times, it always best to show up early (especially for morning classes). There are many good joints within walking distance which is always a plus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a review of their online accounting program and why it is the worst educational experience in my entire life. 1.) They utilize an isolated LMS called Canvas to house their online classes. The software is clunky, confusing and I waste more time trying to figure out where the information is for my class than actually learning. Some teachers make elaborate Canvas classrooms with way too many links and it is like a maze trying to figure out expectations, due dates etc. Canvas doesn't send me notifications to my email or phone either. 2.) There is no instruction. Online school means you teach yourself the curriculum. Can someone tell me what I'm paying this college for if I'm teaching myself out of the textbook? 3.) Teacher response rates are varying degrees of bad depending on the teacher. Sometimes I have gotten NO response and sometimes it takes days for my instructors to respond. If you hit a problem with your work and can't proceed, good luck with that because it's going to take a day to get a question answered by your professor before you can move on with your work. 4.) There is no structure and you're on your own. Teachers can change up due dates to any day of the week with online school. Thanks for that because I work full time which is why I signed up for online school and when you make things due every week on different days, it's really hard to keep track of. 5.) YOU TEACH YOURSELF OUT OF A TEXTBOOK!!!!!!!!!!! One last time......What am I paying for?!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s overrated. It’s hard to make friends here and not students are not involved in campus life-they just go to class and go home. There’s a lot of clubs but most are not very active. Also, it often takes way more than two years to graduate-I’ve been here four years and I hate it. It’s finally my last year though and I can’t wait to leave.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love santa rosa junior college. There is always something going on and something to go do. They give so many class options and our sports mean a lot to our school. Professors are very educated and our academics is very intense and taken seriously. There are many places to go for help and if you need to talk to someone the office is very helpful. Santa Rosa Junior College wants us to succeed.
