Some of the classrooms are very outdated and don't even have windows that open. The temperature is either freezing or so hot that you sweat and the desks are old and there aren't computers in the classrooms for anyone to use.

The teachers are very flexible and accomodating and are always willing to make time for their students and have designated office hours to do so. The administration on the other hand is not functional whatsoever. It is so hard to actually get a meeting with someone in the financial aide office etc, that can actually help you in a timely manner and get things done. Usually they just confuse you more than you were when you went to them.

I have had good and bad teachers at Santa Rosa JC, some bad because they really just shouldn't work with people period, or some that are either biased towards certain students or wanted to teach only their own work. I've had some great teachers as well, who are very passionate about teaching and learning and get involved with the students and treat them with respect. It's a 50/50 mix to be quite honest.

There is literally nothing to help you in this department

I chose this school because at the time I was unsure of what I wanted as student. It is very flexable in allowing me to choose different classes that fit my work schedule.

student body consists of many working adults ranging ages from 18 all the way up to 60s. Making friends is not a priority here and more about getting through the classes and focusing on getting to a school thats for that. Lots of changes, not very diverse clubs and people are not that friendly. Classes are relatively easy,( check ratemyprofessor) for best help with teachers.

Teachers, campus and classes are great.
College Junior 2013-10-06T18:10:50Z
Good and accessible labs, incl printing opportunities. WiFi on campus, most places it is good, but in the northern end of the Santa Rosa campus the connection is not very strong, so you can't always access it.
I have not experienced any network issues.

Small class sizes let you get to know your professor, and they generally are very involved with their students. I've noticed several professors reach out to students struggling in class, offering to help them out. All my professors have been very accessible for questions. If time in class is tight use their office hours.
Registration is easy and quick. While some classes fill up fast, I have yet to see anyone who asked for an add code be rejected.

S.R.J.C. has a sort of older brick look to it. It is a beautiful campus. Our library is a great place to get things done and has a lot of tools to help. With our school having an "older look" that also means that it was built a while ago and not many renovations have been made to classrooms and auditoriums.
College Sophomore 2013-10-01T02:00:46Z
S.R.J.C. is really just a place to come to learn and then leave. Nothing exciting really happens here, just a calm and quiet place.

The reason I go to a junior college is simply because I didn't know what I wanted to do. I was able to attend here and figure out what career path I wanted to go down while only paying a fraction of what I would have paid for going to a four year.

The wifi is constantly booting you off since so many people are using it at once. It makes doing research and online assignments much more difficult.

Now that SRJC has added back a lot of the classes that were slashed due to budget cuts, there is a bit more flexibility in scheduling your classes. Overall, you can pretty much make work what you need to make work - there are a lot of night classes available if you work, or if you're like me and you have a long commute to campus, you can schedule a full courseload to just two days out of the week. Not to mention that there are a LOT of courses here - take a look at the course catalog and you'll find everything from fashion to agriculture. When I transferred here, SRJC was quick in evaluating the courses I'd already taken and giving me equivalent credit, so that's nice, too.
College Senior 2013-09-21T02:01:27Z
The professors are, on average, pretty good. They seem to genuinely care about their subjects and about their students. The thing is, SRJC is a large school - it has a lot of offerings, but it also has a lot of people making use of them. You just have to be on top of things when it comes to registration and seeing counselors and getting tutors and things like that - help is available, but the whole process is definitely self-motivated.
College Senior 2013-09-21T01:55:24Z
To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from a community college. But after three semesters, I am very impressed with the quality of academics at SRJC. My classes have been challenging, but the professors understand that students have a lot on their plates, and generally don't let it become overwhelming. (The grade I gave would be higher, if not for the unfortunate tendency of class sizes to start out overfilled and dwindle to about half-full by the semester's end.) All I can recommend is to try to get some background information on the professor before adding the class, and if you do end up having registered for a class that you can see probably isn't going to work for you, drop it sooner rather than later!

Only took one online class and it was kind of boozie.

With the exception of one teacher, I have really enjoyed my teachers at Santa Rosa Junior College. They are very knowledgeable about what they teach, they care about what they teach and care that their students do well.
College Junior 2013-09-17T20:17:43Z
A lot of older students. It is a place where most people show up, do what they have to do and then leave. Classroom settings are nice. People are friendly and work together
College Junior 2013-09-17T20:15:05Z
Interaction with teacher is as needed. They are great at responding. Go at own pace, but not allowed to go too slow.

Petaluma campus is beautiful and accessible for the most part. Parking is always available, nice library, limited hours. But for the handicapped, there are only 2 elevators on the whole campus, and there are many doors without handicapped buttons. Santa Rosa campus is horrendous to navigate if you are handicapped, there are not nearly enough handicapped parking spaces, most classrooms very dated, without appropriate tech outfitting.
College Sophomore 2013-09-06T23:40:07Z
People are here to take their classes. Resources are limited, although the free tutoring is great. The constant moan of "cutbacks" is the reason given for everything that isn't available.

The nursing program is the most popular program, and the core classes required to apply are extremely limited.
College Sophomore 2013-09-06T23:36:42Z
The wireless is awful, bumps you off constantly, poor signal, s-l-o-w. Printing things out is slow and a cumbersome process.
College Sophomore 2013-09-06T23:33:58Z
The nursing program admissions are strictly by lottery with no consideration for GPA, number of times you've been waiting, nothing. Either your number is picked or not. Even with a 4.0 , you may NEVER get in. And there are no interviews involved, come on! The right kind of people should be going into the field, interviews or recommendations should be part of the program.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
