4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is beautiful, classes are not to difficult to get. Some professors are incredible while most just do their job. Classes are not too difficult, many either rely on papers or tests for a final grade.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sonoma State was more of a back up school for me than anything, and because I did not want to be too far from home, but still wanted to be a good distance, I thought it would be a good fit. As far as a college experience, the school has not provided much. Being in a small city called Rohnert Park, there are not many accessible entertainment opportunities in the area. It is difficult to get many of the necessary classes required to graduate. While the campus is beautiful, they seem to spend more money on the looks of the campus than providing for their students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The main reason I picked Sonoma was because it was a state school with a private school environment. Since Sonoma is a smaller campus, it allows for their students to really get to know their professors and their classmates.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Richmond High School provided me through the right path the programs distributed in this school have helped me become the person I am today.Joining various groups and organizations made me realize opportunities that are being granted should always be taken into consideration.I overcame the last four years of high school that had its ups and downs but with the help of my counselors,mentors and teachers it was possible now I will be the first generation in my family to attend a four year University.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The diversity at my school is the worst. I came from a very diverse city and coming to a predominantly white college was a big shock for me. I felt out of place, there wasn't any clubs or organizations that I felt I could belong to, and the my roommates freshman year were both racist. If I could do it all over again, I would not go to Sonoma State University. I would have liked to go somewhere more diverse and with people who make me feel accepted.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Sonoma State by far isn't the best yet the worst. There's lots of areas where students can grow. One bad thing: Stop wasting money on the Caf's exterior look, give students more class

Overall Experience: I believe that my school is great and the academics is awesome as well. I just expected a CSU to be more diverse with their students. My school does the best they can to keep the students busy and entertained.
