What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
Where many California State universities are large commuter school, Sonoma State provides a more intimate setting. Class sizes are small to average which allows for better teacher-student interaction and there are plenty of clubs and activities to join. Professors and faculty have been a great help in my academic success and they are always willing to sit and discuss any issues a students might have.

Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, CA is an amazing school, and I'm not just saying that because I go there. It is the perfect size for students looking for not too big or too small campuses. And the amount of activities and things to do are endless.
