Santa Rosa Junior College isn't a stereotypical junior college. It is filled with a diverse group of students eager to learn and move on with their intended majors. The academic life is quite elite for a junior college. The campus gives the feeling of an old prestigious institution. Not only do the buildings give students the feeling of attending a private institution, but the teachers are also of great quality and are all very passionate about the subjects they teach.
Between the array of classes offered and the superb athletic teams, SRJC has created a community among students and the residents of Santa Rosa. The school was intended to be a feeder school for the University of California system, and still is to this day, with a special program designed for the direct transfer of students to various UC campuses. Students who attend SRJC can transfer to four-year universities with confidence.
