This college offers a great Interior Design Program that I will complete within 2 years. I will be starting a new career that will fulfill a lifelong dream. I have a BA in Psychology from U.C. Santa Cruz and am a retired senior looking for a new adventure. I plan to put my skills to work by helping the recovery from the fires in our area in October 2017 and assist seniors in staying in place as they age. Without Santa Rosa Junior College, I would have to travel over an hour and a half and attend a much more expensive program. Santa Rosa JC is convenient and cost effective. I am very satisfied with this college and its program!

Santa Rosa junior college is a great way to begin your college career! I’ve had an amazing experience, the instructors are very knowledgeable and the community of the college itself is very welcoming. The Sonoma County fires heavily affected many students and faculty and the college pulled together to have a fire relief fund set aside to help aide those who lost homes. It was heartwarming to see the college caring so much for its students. The financial aide here is amazing as well. I’ve gotten so much help from the school. The Doyle scholarship has helped me immensely for text book expenses. The instructors also show they care for their students and want to be there to help as much as they can. Some even flex their office hours to help suit your time and the instructors I’ve had are great about being available through email through all hours of the day.So if you’re looking for a great 2 year college this is definitely the one you should check out!
I am returning to Santa Rosa Junior College and have opened my eyes to all of the resources and have tried to take advantage of them while I am enrolled. I have gotten help with my resume, therapy, and have a student counselor, too! The one thing I would like to see more of are more compost bins around the campus. I also joined the sustainability club to hopefully begin implementing that change.
