I am a freshman at SSU… I came here optomistic about the whole thing, after not gettng into my school of choice Cal Poly SLO… I find it not easy to make friends that are my type… EVERYBODY drinks and thta is not my thing, so when everyone else is out getting drunk, Im in my room studying or sitting thinking about why I came here…

If you are like me, good morals, not heavy drinker, more quiet and shy, but still cool once people get to know you… Dont come to Sonoma… Its worth it to save the money, invest in a junior college education, and get into the University of choice…

Im learning my mistake the hard way as of now… Dont be like me, save yourself the grief…

Socially, this campus sucks, Rohenert Park is a horrible place to live if a college student… There is nothing to do, its purley residential commuters who drive to san francisco for work…

Half the kids here dont even act like they are motivated to do good. Everyone seems to be into just getting drunk and forgetting about the reason for coming to college…

To get an education…

San Francisco is close but, realistically you wont be going there every weekend to hang out…

Save yourself the money, and the lameness of coming here…

Go to a junior college and go to a better, more well known school for your degree. Or if you do come here, get out asap and go to a more distinguished school…

I would tell people where I was going and they'd say

Sonoma State? Where is that? Ive never heard of it…

This review may be very negative, and Im only a Freshman but I know what I like right off the bat, and I dont like Sonoma State…

Choose Wisely!

questionHi. Do you still regret going to Sonoma State? I want to study business and have been accepted to a few private schools, but they are so much more expensive!
Thanks for taking the time!
