Nestled in the foothills of Sonoma County, Sonoma State is located in the heart of Northern California’s beautiful wine country. Its 269 park-like acres include redwood groves, two lakes, a creek and large grassy areas for kicking back. It is one of the smaller California State University campuses with an undergraduate enrollment of 7,483 students.

SSU is a strong liberal arts university also known for its school of business & economics.  Popular majors include business, biology and kinesiology. Wine business, within the school of business & economics, is the only program in the United States to focus exclusively on the business aspects of the wine industry. The average GPA for first time freshman is 3.25, mid-50% SAT scores are 910-1130 and ACT composite scores are 19-24.

The Seawolves compete in NCAA Division 1 with strong baseball, soccer and golf programs.  Students have access to a 59,000-square-foot recreation center with a large gym, indoor track, climbing wall, indoor basketball and soccer courts, a massage studio and spa.

Sonoma State recently received a $12 million dollar donation for the completion of its Green Music Center, a world class concert hall and outdoor venue.  It will house Sonoma State’s music and performing arts programs and become home to the Santa Rosa Symphony.

Sonoma State is the most residential campus in the CSU system. Classes are small, students are friendly and the cost to attend won’t break the bank.
