Sonoma State admission and records has been a nightmare for me! They have messed up my transcripts and registration 3 semesters in a row and despite my priority registration status for sports, I never get the classes that I need. Yes, SSU does have small class room sizes but it is at a cost. The down side to their small class size is the 12 or so people on the wait list who never get in. If you don't get into the class on your first registration appointment, you're pretty much screwed. As a result, I should be a graduating senior this year but, now I will not graduate for at least another 3 or 4 semesters. The Art department is friendly but, severely understaffed! They can only offer one section of each class, so if you want intermediate painting and aren't in the first 28 to sign up for it, too bad. It is nearly impossible to get the art classes that are needed, people are on the wait-list in April for classes that start at the end of August and all the wait-list is good for is getting your hopes up and than having those hopes smashed come the first day of that class. As a student athlete I can also say that the athletes at Sonoma and the coaching staff are all very talented but, common sense is somewhat lacking. It is my honest opinion that while Sonoma state prides itself on small class size it doesn't having the numbers of professors needed to do so…if you want to go to college for 5 or 6 years go to Sonoma State.
