- Santa Rosa Junior College, founded in 1918, is the tenth oldest of California's 108 publicly funded, two-year community colleges. From its initial freshman class of 19 students in 1918, SRJC has grown into one of the largest single college districts in the country: the Sonoma County Junior College District. SRJC offers a strong general education program for students planning to transfer to four-year colleges and universities, as well as more than 140 occupational programs designed to prepare students for the workforce. The college grants both associate of arts (A.A.) and associate of sciences (A.S.) degrees. SRJC offers comprehensive transfer preparatory and career training programs at dozens of sites, including two beautiful campuses in Petaluma and Santa Rosa that are located 35 and 52 miles north of San Francisco, respectively. Both the oak-studded Santa Rosa Campus, which is largely characterized by elegant turn-of-the-century brick buildings on over 100 acres, and the 40-acre contemporary adobe style Petaluma Campus, offer a distinct and welcoming atmosphere that is highly conducive to student learning and to employment. The college operates a self-sustaining 365-acre Shone Farm near the Russian River, a progressive Technology Academy in Telecom Valley, a new student run gourmet Culinary Arts Center in downtown Santa Rosa, and a top flight Public Safety Center Training Center in Windsor. SRJC has international education programs in Europe and Central America, conference winning athletic programs, nationally ranked speech and debate teams, a national recognized Summer Repertory Theatre, Planetarium, the Jesse Peter Native American Museum, and Art Gallery. At SRJC we focus on the student, and the successes that our students have achieved are evidence of that attention. While we traditionally enroll approximately 36,000 students each semester, our class sizes are small and students have the opportunity to work closely with their instructors. Our transfer students who go on to four-year colleges and universities do as well as (and in many cases, better than) students who began their college careers at a four-year institution. Students who complete one of more than 150 vocational certificates enter the workforce well trained to succeed in business and industry.
