Am learning a lot
As a college freshman I anticipated the work load to be different than that of high school. It was. But it also was doable. I liked the fact that the class I was in wasnt too big. I felt that whenever i raised my hand i would be heard. I learned a lot during this semester even without knowing i did. The teaching method was great. We not only used group discussion so that all of our voices could be heard, but we also watched a lot of films so that the teacher wasn't lecturing AT US all the time. It was a great combination and teaching method which allowed me to learn in a comfortable environment
Am enjoying being here
This is/was my first semester returning to college after having my first child. I am 21 and have many things going on in my life right now. The teachers here are really accommodating and have helped me successfully complete this semester. Many students that I've spoken to say that they have been helped out by their teachers when life's problems seem to jump out of no where. I do however need to make more friends or get to know a few of my class mates. I plan on doing this by joining groups and organizations. That should help my experience along.
Bang for the buck
This community college is very affordable. I only took two classes this semester however i paid NOTHING out of pocket. If you are in enough financial need, there is no way you wont be able to attend college. Financial aid combined with my EFC and the BOG waiver, i had even enough money for a refund! which is just what i needed to purchase my books :)
Tips for prospective students
If you are considering attending SRJC i highly suggest enrolling in Counseling 270 during the summer so that your registration priority goes up in the fall. Due to the enormous over flow of students there are more trying to attend than there is space available so it is very important to do anything that would move you up on the priority list for registration. Taking that 4day summer class moves you up one position. Then during your first semester see a counselor regularly and they will know you are a serious student who needs top priority when picking classes. Good luck!
Great for these types of students
Great for single moms, young moms, returning to school after time off, working students, immigrant students, AB540 (undocumented) students, first time college students, undeclared/undecided students

The amount of classes available can be overwhelming, make sure you talk to a counselor about where you want to transfer (UC or CSU) because the general educational requirements are different for each. Classes on almost everything are offered, make sure to play around and take things that interest you, especially if you don't know your major! Professors are usually available for extra help too.
Am enjoying being here
There is a really good vibe around campus (Santa Rosa campus) and there are plenty of people to meet as well as tons of clubs and sports.
Bang for the buck
Tuition is low, and the college is ranked in the top 5 in the country! The opportunities available for the cost is awesome.
Tips for prospective students
Pass your classes the first time around, and make sure you don't take the wrong class. It can be really easy to stay for more than two years, but if you plan to transfer keep on top of your classes! If you need help, most professors are available in their office for one-on-one assistance. Talk to the colleges you plan to transfer to so you know you are taking the correct classes to transfer, and meet with a JC counselor to get approval for classes and an academic plan (MAP).
Great for these types of students
Students who want to save money but have lots of options for classes. Student who want to complete all their lower division core classes as well as general ed. Students who want to get an Associates Degree or get into an Occupational Program.
