I am very pleased with Sonoma State. The campus environment is conducent to both learning and having fun. The criminology program is very good. The professors are helpful. The housing is exceptional. The rooms are of ample size and the common living area within each suite is of a very good size. I am a member of the women's cross country team and enjoy it very much. The traveling opportunity with the team has been wonderful. The variety of clubs is excellent. They cover a wide number of interests. I am a member of the triathlon club. It has given me the opportunity to meet people with common interests. I would highly recommend this school to any prospective student.
