First I'd like to say that this school has one of the highest transfer rates. Yes this school looks nice and the dorms are amazing, but really that's the only thing this university has to offer. They prep the campus up real nice during 2nd semester to make a good impression on potential students taking tours but put very little money into better faculty and improving the departments. Chemistry and physics are a joke. Physics is so easy that you can get an A in the class and not have a clue what chapter 1 was about. The kinesiology department is so impacted that it takes most students six years to graduate, not to mention the recent 16 unit cap they created, people will be here for even longer.

Student services is filled with the most unhelpful people I've ever talked to. I've repeatedly gone in with questions and barely got a one word answer before I was shuffled out.

Most of the undergraduate students are nice. However I haven't met one student that has said they loved this school and would never want to transfer. All my friends and students I've had classes with, both Greek and unaffiliated students, have considered going to a different school.

Rohnert park has nothing to offer. It is the most boring suburban neighborhood. I'm a very outdoor person and there are NO hikes to go on, no nice walks to take, no nice bike rides. Anything exciting is a good 30-40min drive away so if you don't have a car expect to spend your weekend on campus in the dorms or at bad parties that get broken up at 10:30pm.

That being said. . . Go Seawolves!! Oh yeah, forgot we don't even have a football team.
