Only go to this SSU if there is a specific program that excites you. The social life is awful. Student moral is very low. Rohnert Park is by all means an armpit community that belongs the south or the midwest. Some professors are wonderful but most are middle of the road. I had a mathematics professor that had a stuttering problem and was unable at the time to follow what he was saying. An english TA even told me that I should attend another school because SSU was a shitty place to get an education. Mel Graves was a great teacher in the music program but he has since passed away RIP.

Most people at SSU seemed depressed and they did not want to be there. The local police refered to my friends and I as transient citizens. Everyone I knew including myself was kicked out of the dorms by the end of the year because the campus cops created a police state atmosphere.

If I were to do it all over again I would have gone out into the real world, worked for a while, go to a JC and then attend a respectable University. In fact that is exactly what I did after graduating from SSU. Now I am a mechanical engineering student at UT Austin.

The main thing that I came away with from SSU is to listen to yourself. Don't beat your head against the wall by doing something you hate everyday. If you go here make sure you are in a program you love right off the bat so you are not wasting your time and realize that this school will not provide a typical American college experience.
