What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sonoma State has the small college feel. Classes are easy for the most part and the campus is beautiful. On campus housing is one of the main reasons I chose Sonoma State University. There isn't much to do directly around Sonoma State but San Francisco is just a 45 minute drive away!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sonoma State University is a great university. I have received an excellent education as a Family Nurse Practitioner Student. My professors have been very supportive, the campus has great resources, my fellow students are really friendly, and the cost is very reasonable. I have been so impressed with the supportiveness and responsiveness of all of my professors. Although my classes have many online activities, they are always available to meet with students, and they respond right away to emails. They are also very knowledgeable in the course content. The campus has a great design with modern buildings, a great student center, places to eat, and lots of parking. I really enjoy spending time on campus. I have also enjoyed interacting with my fellow students at SSU. The student body is very friendly, and I have made some lasting friends there. I have never had any negative interactions with any fellow students. Finally, I find the cost for my Family Nurse Practitioner Certification program very reasonable. I am receiving a high quality education that costs less than many private or UC system universities. My degree is truly a great value. In summary, I highly recommend Sonoma State University. The faculty, campus, student body, and value here are excellent. I am so glad I enrolled here, and I believe any future students would be happy here as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sonoma State University is quiet little school. There is not much to do and never a whole lot going on at the campus. Many students commute. Often times, it is possible to walk though campus in the middle of the day and see barely any people. Many of the students here wish to transfer. Then again, Sonoma State has a truly beautiful campus. There are lakes in the middle of campus and a world class music facility where there many famous musicians perform.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sonoma State University is a beautiful campus filled with open minded and friendly people. The professors are approachable and the resources they offer are generally easy to access. Also, the food is really great, there are always options for everyone. There are sections that serve pizza, hamburgers, and some that feature food from around the world. Most of all, the housing is very nice. In some dorms you get your own bathroom and kitchen and it's really spacious. The housing feels more like a house than a college dorm. I love it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school with some very happy and friendly students. The campus is beautiful and there is so much to get involved in! Living in the dorms is a great option for first time freshmen! The town near by is small but there is everything you need and a short drive away you have great places where to hike, eat, there is the big Santa Rosa mall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is absolutely beautiful. There are a huge variety of clubs and activities to partake in on campus, you just have to be actively involved to have a good experience. There are plenty of shops and towns to explore nearby. One perk if you are 21 years of age is the beautiful wine country nearby. There are also many activities within driving distance, such as Bodega Bay or San Fransisco. The campus is fairly small but not too small, to the point where you usually recognize at least one face while walking to class. I've had my fair share of great and not-so-great professors. The biggest complaint would have to be the lack of classes available when you register. I personally haven't had a problem getting my classes but I've had many friends who haven't gotten the class schedules they wanted or needed. I'm going into my fourth year here at Sonoma State University, and I would definitely recommend this college to others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, SSU is a great school. There are many opportunities for students to do well. The location is great because it is 1 hour North from San Francisco which is close but not too close. The cafeteria is awesome. It is a tight knit community that is positively developing. Sci. 120 class is the best for learning field trips and hands on research experience. Atmosphere is good. Avoid marijuana, it is rampant. Students show up to class wanting to learn which is nice and a good educational environment.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates provide exceptional support in educational and social aspects while also creating a campus enviornment where I feel comfortable expressing my own interests and beliefs.

What's unique about your campus?

My favorite part of Sonoma State is being able to comfortably express my interests while having the support from my classmates and professors to make my dreams a reality. It's a privelage to walk around campus and see familiar, friendly faces of students and professors. With a smaller school population, there is a higher possibility for you to actually get to know your professor on a personal level as well as the people you regularly pass in the hall ways. Sonoma State gives you the tools to make a successful, interactive, and enjoyable college experience.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Sonoma State is a small close knit school. The staff and faculty in the kinesiology department were incredibly supportive and fantastic at their jobs. I had a very positive experience here and would recommend it to anyone.

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

If I could go back in time and tell highschool senior self anything, it would be to take college seriously from the start, put in the extra effort, and take a few extra units each semester. It would be worth the extra work to get done earlier and start in my chosen career. I would also tell myself to be more involved in campus life, that such a community is hard to come by and to enjoy it while I'm young and have that opportunity. I would emphasize the importance of internships. Experience is invaluable as well as networking I should have started much earlier. The relationships you make in college can be so rewarding not only on a personal level but also a professional level. Most importantly I would tell my past self that college is a great experience and to be so grateful for the opportunity to go. Instead of dreading class and exams remind myself that not everyone is lucky enough to go to college. I would tell myself that I am capable of anything and towards the end of my college career I would be raising my beautiful daughter and would graduate with honors.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew what I had wanted to do before I got to college. I also wish I had known all this school has to offer in terms of extracurricular activities and clubs.
