College Spotlight: Sonoma State University (Rohnert Park, CA)

For those of you looking for a small school and personal attention at the cost of a California State University school, here you go. Sonoma State University is located in the heart of wine country. If you don’t know where wine country i,s well, Sonoma State is about an hour north of San Francisco. Unfortunately, BART does not go all the way up to the North Bay. However, there are plenty of opportunities for students who enjoy outdoor activities and green living. Sonoma State is a great environment for a scholar to grow and develop as a person. A supportive and open minded community is just the start of it. 

Fast Facts

+ Best. Housing. Ever. Hands down. Even kids from Yale are jealous about the housing options first year Freshman have. If you live in the Merlot apartments, you get your own kitchen, bathroom, and share a room with one other person. No triples or quads. If you’re in the Sauvignon apartments…ohooho…you get the luxury of your own private bathroom.

+ Speaking of housing, Sonoma State is one of the few and the proud to have Freshman Interest Groups. This is housing based on common interests based on areas of studies. Instant study group! 

+ Let’s Go Green! Sonoma State has a very green philosophy. If your passion is saving the enviroment, welcome home.

+ Plenty of new facilities!

+ Did we mention green? There are acres and acres of campus to explore. Right along the commencement lawn, there is a creek and a hiking trail on campus.Nature lovers unite!

+ A unique wine business program!

+ Popular Majors: Business, Psychology, Nursing, Enviromental Studies, Kinesiology, Liberal Studies

+ The dinning halls are always hiring. Gotta learn how to make that gourmet dish and make use of that kitchen in the dorms.

Students Speak
