What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Sonoma State University is like the college version of a showroom in IKEA. Everything is organized and keeps within the aesthetic, and visitors have delight in seeing the beauty and history of the college. Sonoma State has many job opportunities on campus, which is also a great thing for students who need assistance with finance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sonoma State University has a great variety of undergraduate and graduate-level programs. The student to professor ratio is low, which is amazing because it allows for students to connect with their peers and professors. Having had the privilege to attend this institution, I came across so many amazing student resources and programs. There just needs to be more diversity on campus but they have improved over the past few years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Good for academically focused students! Not too many sports teams to be completely 110% honest. Mostly recreational or club/intramural teams. The only competitive teams are for soccer and lacrosse I believe. Great support and resources for minority students. However, not a lot of presence of minority students themselves. Majority of the student body is composed of middle class white folk (no disrespect of course). Not many party scenes either. At least not that I'm aware of since I keep to myself due to my rational fear of being taken advantage of or peer pressured into something I don't want to do. Regardless, small campus, great folks once you find 'em!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed my time at Sonoma State; however, I was slightly older than a lot of my classmates. I think if I were younger and wanted to do the whole Greek life, I would be disappointed in comparison to somewhere like UC, Berkeley. I really liked my department, the Anthropology Department. I thought my teachers were really helpful and supportive for the most part. I do wish we would have taken more courses on laws and regulation as I know that these courses are only offered for graduate students. One thing that I think we need much more improving on is our food quality. The cafeteria was horrible in terms of quality- good things, but not locally sourced or fresh.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Sonoma State. The academics are pretty good and I like the environment and the atmosphere. The people are nice and the campus is beautiful. The surrounding area is suburban, which I like a lot, and there are plenty of places to go and get food and shop in the local area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a current freshman Sonoma State is just okay. It is a good choice if you live in Sonoma County because commuting is not a hassle. However the dorms are just dorms but I hear around there is a LOT of need for maintenance. Big complaint is that roommate pairing is terrible. You don't have a questionaire nor when I got my room, my other roommate did not show up until I moved in. The cafeteria seems nice at first but the food is okay, but not great or terrible. I try not to go there very often. Across the street there's a plaza full of good options to go to instead. The campus is fairly small but don't underestimate your distance time. Classes are okay and most of the time there is apopulation below 100, not even 30 kids sometimes in halls. There's barely any pride or sports stuff that's worth going to. No frats or sorority houses. They're there, but there is no physical housing. Just one of those go in, get degree, get out things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have lived in Sonoma County my whole life, and spent much of my time growing up visiting the campus and it's scenery, that being said, it is a beautiful place to learn. As a transfer student I have been pleasantly surprised with the reasonable class sizes. Accessing and contacting my professors has never been a problem for me, which is something that is incredibly important for college students. Sonoma may have several thousand students however it never ceases to feel like a small homey campus, which for people who may not be from here, may be what they need to feel welcomed and at home in their new college career. Overall Sonoma provides an open academic learning space where students do not need to fear voicing their feelings and opinions, or asking questions in class, and you do feel a part of a community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sonoma State is quite diverse with many friendly people and professors. So far the professors I've had are really there to help their students all that they can. Most of them can be reached during their office hours only, but reaching them by email is pretty efficient as well. The only downside I have is that all freshman students are required to purchase the school's meal plan, which is not worth the money since the food is not very good. But, it is efficient when it comes to a quick meal for the day and night. The campus itself is pretty clean and there are many events that happen throughout the semester that are interesting that students can access.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was just walking around the SSU campus for the first time ever and felt moved to post: this is one of the prettiest campuses I have ever seen! Sonoma is a much more beautiful campus than Berkeley (where I went, back in the day) or Stanford (where I grew up). I can't speak to the student experience but as far as being visually gorgeous, I can say that SSU is tops.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a sophomore at Sonoma State have enjoyed my experience so far at the school. Lots of activities and nice people to meet. Professors most very helpful. I currently play soccer for a club team and have enjoyed it. I have also participated in kick boxing to stay active and fit during off season from soccer. Over all my experience has been good.
