4 College Sophomore

Academics: Kinesiology, Pre-physical Therapy is a tough major at Sonoma State as all other schools. You must keep onto of your work especially for challenging classes like anatomy and physiology. The professors know everything there is to know and the Teach Assistants are even more helpful! Just make sure you seek the help you need before you are too swapped. People want to help you!

3 College Sophomore

Academics: All the professors that I've had so far are great professors. They want to help you and set time aside for you in office hours, and some even offer to look over papers before you turn them in. The only downside is Sonoma's registration process. It is tough to get every class you need for each semester. Some semesters will be super easy and some the work load will be double than it should because it is hard to get enrolled into all the classes needed. If you get on the wait list (which you most likely will than not), its okay because the school does open up more classes if there are an extreme amount of people on the wait list for a specific class. Make sure you plan out backup classes and backups for those backups when registration time comes!

3 College Junior

Academics: I found it very difficult trying to register for classes because the program I am in is impacted.

College Junior

Academics: I will not be attending until the fall so I cannot comment.

4 College Senior

Academics: My major is very interesting and the workload is average, the advisors are very helpful!
