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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a pretty nice school. It’s not something that wows me, but not disappointing either. Walkable campus, great professors, the schools pretty alright. It’s in a location that’s far from the Bay Area nightlife, but it’s a drivable distance to San Francisco.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it overall. But I also have never attended another college so I can't compare well. It was a bit difficult for me to make friends, but that might have just been me. The dorms are suite-style rather than large buildings with many floors, which could be a good thing or bad depending on what you're into. Also not many options to buy food on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Sonoma State is a very special College. It is located in a wonderful area of California and it has really great and accessible professors. I think that the college is making great leaps right now to diversify the campus which is really needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its just okay so far. I'm here for graduate school and I love my cohort and the instructors in my program, but campus life isn't very exciting. The campus is beautiful and the weather is nice, but I don't feel as though the students have a community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Sonoma State University is that it has become as second home to me. The people are wonderful and open-minded. My friends are very supportive, and are always encouraging me to attempt everything and anything. Also, the campus is absolutely mesmerizing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sonoma State was my top choice because I wanted to be close to home but still be out on my own. I have had a rocky start due to trying to get into a sorority that hazed me but have joined Alpha Omicron Pi and have loved everyone in it! I am also a Peer Mentor that helps freshmen get used to the campus and I am basically a big resource for them to succeed on campus. I haven't had too many problems with professors and most have done everything they can to help you succeed. If you can take the Dinosaur class because it was the most fun class I probably will ever take in my life and a nice break from the more serious classes. The city itself is kind of boring and definitely would not live here after college and it's definitely not a party school. It's not diverse at all but I feel as though it is trying to get better but there is room for improvement. Overall a wonderful campus and a relaxing atmosphere once you arrive!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sonoma State is a great school for those who want to get away, and do well in clean, calm environment. Its not a school big on sports (no football team), but there are plenty of clubs and exciting things to get involved in, you just have to venture out and look. Also the school is not that diverse, but they are slowly but surely working on that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The importance on campus is focused on outside activities rather than academics. Greek life is extremely important on this campus in order to feel involved which is extremely sad. On every campus, there is a psychological program available but ours is inaccessible due to the 2200 students to 1 counsellor ratio. Furthermore, if you want classes, forget about it. You will be waitlisted for almost every single one of your classes because there isn't enough money for them but there sure is enough money to hire more programming advisors and positions. Need somewhere to live so you don't have to commute 20 minutes to school? Forget about it! There is such limited housing that many students are forced to transfer away from the school. This school is going through a transition period since there is a new president and is focused more on administration than the 10,000 students on the campus or the lack of diversity. Overall, this school is a mess right now but tune in later to see if they actually get their stuff together.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I enjoy SSU. I chose this campus for its small size and great location. I was not expecting a wild college experience, and therefore I have not been too disappointed. Greek life is a massive part of campus culture, but I am not affiliated with Greek life and I feel like a total outcast. If you're not Greek at SSU, you're shunned a bit. There is a massive rift between students who are Greek and who are not. The rift is breached occasionally, but not too often. Aside from Greek life, campus is absolutely gorgeous and small classes make for ideal learning environments. I do like SSU, but I do not suggest it for students who are looking for the traditional college experience. Our community is just too small to support that culture. The key to Sonoma State is community. Get involved in every way you can. It can definitely be a miserable campus if you don't get involved in something, and while it is hard to track down clubs, they are out there. Another great way to get involved is to find a job off-campus or a group that is more involved in off-campus activities. Sonoma county and the surrounding areas offer so much and can dramatically impact a students overall experience at Sonoma State.
