  • The dorms here are the most spacious and well kept of all the CSU's. You will not find anything better in California (public schools anyway)…

  • it'd be better if we had some sort of survey we can take, in order to see how we can be compatible with others. the roommates are picked at random…

  • didn't live on campus but a lot of classmates did and they didn't have any unreasonable complaints. if anything, they tended to think that the dorms were pretty decent.…

    The food served on campus is very good! There is plenty of variety, and it is not too expensive to get a meal plan. Eating in the dining hall is a good place to meet people and also get a nice, hot meal.

    At my week long stay at Sonoma State I must admit the food gets quite tiresome. Like I said I was only there for a week and in a mere week they were already repeating the same meals. I can't imagine eating there for four years lol. But for the money, I guess you can't really complain!

    I've never eaten here except for Charlie Brown's but they say the Kitchens is really good, Buffet style and $11 to get in.

    Its college food not very artistic but can be very good at times. Lots of organic food stands close to campus.

    The food here at Sonoma is okay but it can be better. There is always something new to eat everyday. However, the food and dining is bound to change when the new student center opens and we get a new chef.

    On campus, there wasn't much to eat. There were more options a few minutes away, though.

    The dining and food are just like any other location with the same meal plans and food. We are currently opening up a new dining court that will hopefully boost the experience to a five star experience.

    Greek life makes up a large population of our students but most everyone who is affiliated loves it. There are plenty of soroities and fraternities to choose from.

    There are many sororities and fraternities on campus. However, Rohnert Park has laws against greek houses and so does Sonoma State, so there is no fraternity or sorority houses that are official. Also you cannot live with more than 6 people in an off-campus house because of local laws, so you cannot even make an un-official greek house. However, the greek life is really predominant on campus! About 15% of the population is affiliated and growing!
