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

The best option for finding a college you'll be successful at is research. The easiest thing to do is go online and research all the potential campuses. Once you have a list of possible colleges, attend campus tours, look at the majors offered, look at the clubs and sports available, and make sure the distance from home is comfortable for you. Living on campus is one of the best ways to meet new people, learn more about yourself, and learn how to cope with differences. Joining clubs is also a great option for making friends. Looking at the clubs in your major can help you after graduation through networking. Don't let your inhibitions get the best of you; introduce yourself to your neighbor, speak up in class, rally for what you believe in. College offers endless opportunities to mold a better you, so find one that has classes you may like, clubs you're interested in, and a surrounding area to your liking. It will be the best schooling experience of your life.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The Sonoma Aroma. On hot days the manure on surrounding farms creates this nasty smell that's unavoidable.

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

It is very small, not very diverse, suburbian, professors and staff are very helpful, not a lot of things to do off campus, bad transpertation system, housing is really nice but very expensive, classes are usually 25-30 students. not very many sports teams.

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

Look around, don't settle for the first one that looks the best, do the reserch and ask lots of questions, visit the campus when class is in session, and talk to professors and acedemic advisors before you apply, KIDS get to know your professors even your freshmen year they really do like to talk to you and that is what they get paid for, don't be afriad to meet new people, put yourself out there, even if you are scared, participate in activites around campus, join a club that interests you, don't worry if you don't know what you want to do yet, the first two years of college will help you decide, volunteer it looks good on appliations and resumes! HAVE FUN! and a little advise your last year of college will feel like your last year of high school! dont think your done with those feelings! o and you have to read and study in college it is not like high school at ALL.

This school was the perfect size in a beautiful city. The area is so nice. The proffesors are great. This school really seemed to be about the students and was small enough so it could be about the students. THe other schools I liked were to big. I felt at them I would not be an individual but an id number. Sonoma state offered me a place to have fun, make friends, and learn at the same time.

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

Go to a school where you fell safe. When touring the campus, look around and see if you can picture your self being there alone. Then picture your self walking across campus with a group friends. When picking a school make a list of things you need. If you need an ocean nearby cuz you like to surf go to a school near the ocean. If you like to go to football games go to a school with a football team. Make a list of things you want to have and the school that has most of those things is probably the best one for you. Goodluck.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the school and the residental community the best things about it. it is always busy and everyone is here to learn, but at the same time having fun. in a month you will meet more people then you could immagine.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If your first choice is a party school, big city, or purly academic school, steer clear. There are always parties, mostly sub-free, and we are close to San Francisco, and value academia, but we are nothing like UCLA, MIT, or UCSB

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

Make sure that you choose the college that you feel is the best fit for you. Do not decide simply because someone you know is going to the school, or because you think you should attend a school because you parents/teachers "expect" you too. You want to go where you will feel confortable enough to branch out and explore things outside of you norm. Also, be open to new things. It's part of the college experience to try new things. If you've never taken a dance class before, but have been curious, now this is the time to try. If you are normally a structured person, try signing up for an art class. Have fun! Learn more about yourself, by doing things that you never thought you would. There is nothing wrong with being a well-rounded person once you graduate.

It has many charle brown pictures and statues becuase charles shultz 's wife donated money to our school. It has a fun atmosphere and there is always something new to discover. The campus housing is nicer than most schools.

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

look at class room sizes and if they are taught by the professor or undergrads. Look for diverse majors and programs.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The small campus means not many students and with budget cuts the variety of classes have been cut.

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

Visit the campus to get a feel for what college life will be like. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Take a tour of campus. If available, sit in on a class. Meet with the faculty in your major department. Be willing to meet others around you; the best opening to make friends is having some of the same classes.

What's unique about your campus?

I like the location, campus size, and terrain.

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

I can't think of anything, I did a lot of research about this school before I came here.

My school is the perfect size and is very envirnomentally friendly. It feels more like a community than just a place where you get and education.

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

Visit the college. Don't rely on pictures or what other people tell you about the school. Make sure you see it for yourself.
