The instructors I have so far received are all unique which i find particularly great! Each instructor of course follows instructor guidelines but in their own way that is mostly effective for student learning outcomes. At the very beginning of eery semester classes are full to their max capacity yet the instructor will give each student on the waiting list a welcoming chance to squeeze in because usually by the next week some student will drop the course and the waitlisted has a seat. My favorite new addition to some study courses is online homework and ebooks. The best part about having online homework is that I can do it anywhere at anytime as long as i have internet connection which is free at the JC, Starbucks and McD!

I really enjoy my school! It's very welcoming and everyone (if you talk to them is super nice). Since it is more of a commuter campus, there isn't really a huge opportunity to make a lot of friends other than the people in your classes so you do have to go out of your way to do make friends. Most of the teachers I've had have been great! My worst class was probably the math class I'm taking this semester. Make sure to get your general ed out of the way quickly. They're the most tedious classes. The environment of the campus is generally laid back and accepting of other people and is very diverse. There aren't too many outside of school events other than sports and plays which are great but I wish they would do more to unite the student population.

I currently am majoring in Linguistics at SRJC. Don't get me wrong, there are quite a few different language courses offered at SRJC (ASL, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, etc.). Unfortunately, due to spending cuts across the state, many classes have been cancelled or are offered at limited times of the year. This makes it difficult when creating schedules each semester because I have to plan my schedule based around my language courses. I had my German 4 class cancelled, and the school says it will not be offered for another year! With the limited classes available, students are usually left with only one or two options for language professors. This can be a dilemma if a student loves their language, but is forced to attend a class with a professor they dislike because there are no alternatives. I will say that there are a few wonderfully passionate professors at this school though, who make their classes fun and lectures very informative.

Although the foreign language classes I've taken are preparation for my major, Santa Rosa JC has virtually no department for linguistics. Although there is a foreign language department, there is only a single linguistics course offered: English 25 (Intro to Linguistics). It is a great course, but I wish that my school had more to offer in this field.
