| Look, Sonoma State is so lame but it also has good points. A lot of the freshman in my year weren't ready for college or weren't the Sonoma State student aka couldnt deal with the lack of extracurricular and a non responsive community. Yes, it sucks but there are ways to get around it (greek life).|
No, this is not UCDavis where there is a strong campus community and where the surronding city (Davis) is welcoming to students; Sonoma state has its downsides but there are a whole lotta people who feel your pain, have parties, and have stuff to do. Just be aware of what you're getting into!!

| When it comes to Sonoma State University, I'll spare you the lengthy discertation and cut right to the chase.|
If you consider yourself and individual looking for a college experience that centers around the immaturity of consuming alcohol, taking drugs, or smoking marijuana, then Sonoma State might be the perfect place for you.
However, if you would rather try and live a respectable lifestyle which includes the abstinence of the trivial ideals mentioned above, you may want to consider attending a different University.
(If you fall under the latter and still decide to become a student here, prepare yourself for a long and arduous first year. The majority of your peers will simply shun you and exclude you from social activities. I mean, who wants to hang out with a self respecting individual when you can flock with the other lemmings and indulge in a lifestyle dominated by substance and false personalities?)
I am currently awaiting a transfer request and, thankfully, it looks as if my stay here is coming to an end.
Make it a great freshman year, or not... The choice is yours.Cheers

| I have tried to "get involved" a number of times like the school promotes, but as a first semester freshman nearing the end of the semester, I am just about ready to leave. Advising resources, extracurriculars, field trips, and club meetings in general are unbelievable unhelpful and especially unreliable. I am getting good grades and the schoolwork isn't hard, but the faculty is lousy. If you are a go-getter and into clubs and leadership, maybe that is the only way you can enjoy this school. But if you are interested in a few extracurriculars, like studying abroad or getting help in advising; small things like that, don't count on getting any help here. |
