Sonoma State University Reviews
Review Sonoma State University
Came here as a 3rd year transfer from a JC and I absolutely love it!I live on campus and the on campus housing is SO SO nice, I was blown away! I'm not from this part of California so I was nervous it'd be an uncomfortable transition but everything has been so smooth. It was super easy to find a job on campus that works with my school schedule. You definitely have to stay on the ball and keep track of what courses you're gonna need to take because classes and adviser appointments are very competitive . There's plenty of on-campus events and opportunities to get involved . There's tons of clubs and diverse organizations so it's safe to say there is really a place for everyone. No reason why anyone shouldn't feel welcome or at home here. Go seawolves!
Wonderful School! In my time spent at Sonoma, I experienced the true values of "community." SSU is a school that dedicates itself to putting their students first. Throughout my time at Sonoma I involved myself with 4-5 clubs, went out often, and was never bored. If you attend SSU, MAKE SURE you join a club and GET INVOLVED. It will make your experience 100 times better. Did I mention how BEAUTIFUL the campus is?? Not to mention the perks of living right next to Napa, Sonoma wines and San Francisco!
From the moment I stepped on campus, I felt at home. Sonoma State has a very welcoming environment and everyone at this school is very nice and supportive of one another. There are so many opportunities to get involved on campus from participating in village council to playing sports and joining clubs-there is something for everyone! The campus is absolutely beautiful! It is just the right size and it's easy to find where everything is. Sonoma State is an amazing college and I am so glad I made the decision to come here!
