4 College Freshman

Academics: The learning environment at Sonoma State is great. You have support professors who are happy to help during their office hours as well as a tutoring center (free reservations). The curriculum is very well designed to help all students succeed. The only problem is budge cuts and the limit to 16 units / semester. This makes it hard to get into needed courses and graduate on time.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I would say that Sonoma State is designed to help students with academic success. There are services in place to help students with special needs. Professors are more than supportive and the workload is usually reasonable.

3 College Junior

Academics: There is always good and bad, but the bigger the major the more help and support you get
