3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are some interesting things off campus, and the students try to host things on-campus, but it can get pretty dead if you don't have connections to parties or events. The local attitude accepts college students- except when there are parties involved. There's a lot of families and old people surrounding the campus.

Local Atmosphere: Rohnert Park is pretty remote/boring, but lots of options an hour away.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Rohnert Park is generally a small college town. There is not too much to do unless you have a car. If you have a car, it is an hour drive to San Francisco, there is a nearby go cart racing, arcade, paintball, lasertag, and casino. In the town 10-15 minutes drive over has two malls, but only one is worth going to. If you are 21, there is the casino and bars that many students go to called the Cotati Crawl.

Local Atmosphere: You will hate this city. It is full of meth heads, it always smells bad, and the cops hate college students they give tickets to any college student they can. This city is absolutely horrible and the people here hate students.
