More than 2,500 prospective students and their family members swarmed Sonoma State University’s campus on Saturday, getting a glimpse of what campus life is like for students here.
For the nearly 700 admitted students in attendance, Seawolf Decision Day provided an opportunity to explore the campus. For many, it also provided an opportunity to make the commitment to become a Seawolf.
“Getting into college and choosing to continue your education are major accomplishments,” said President Judy K. Sakaki during her welcoming remarks inside a packed SSU gym. “Wherever you hope to be, whatever you hope to do, remember that you can get there from here — with an education and a degree from Sonoma State.”
Throughout the sun-drenched day, visitors were able to participate in guided tours and various workshops focused on specific schools as well as topics such as the transfer process and financial aid. Rows of tables in Salazar Plaza at the Campus Fair featured representatives from academic and student affair departments and campus organizations ready to discuss with students and their families what they offer. Prospective students also got a chance to interact with faculty and current students. Many of those walking around campus also received a warm welcome and an opportunity to take a selfie with President Sakaki.
“Seawolf Decision Day is a day where we hope to convey to our prospective students and their families the community that we are at Sonoma State,” said Gina Geck, director of Student Outreach and Recruitment. “We have outstanding academic and support programs, along with a culture of care that we have created with close knit relationships built between students, faculty and staff.”
For admitted students, the Enrollment Reservation and Mandatory Orientation Deposit is due by May 1, 2019 in order to secure a space. For more information on each step of the admission process, visit Admissions.
