I would say that it is one of the most affordable and quality schools that I have ever visited and also attended, I highly recommend the school if you are trying to experience a laid-back environment, but also be involved within the community one.
I would have to stay freshman year I don’t recommend getting a dorm that is living with someone else, you don’t really know what you’re getting into and I learned that this year. I would also say that the kitchen is closing at 8 PM make it really difficult to eat in a day that you will maybe be working a later shift and then you have to figure out how to pay for food.
The school tends to get a bad rep for being "everyone's second choice", but it's a fairly decent school. The business department was competent, the amenities are good, and Sonoma County is a beautiful area. The School of Business and Economics is one of the larger schools on campus, so the level of support you have available is greater than some of the smaller departments. All in, I give Sonoma State an 8/10.
Not as much camaraderie as in other schools. I was nearly unaware of any athletics going on while I was in attendance. Greek life can get a little obnoxious if you're trying to avoid it.
It is a school that helps you become a better person. The reason I say that is because it is small. The professors give you the time to talk to you.
It is a small school, and there are not many people you can talk to.
