Opportunities and Resources For Science & Technology

The School of Science and Technology at Sonoma State University welcomes new and continuing students to an active community of scientists, health professionals, and engineers. We have numerous resources to engage students in their major, broaden their experiences beyond the classroom, and prepare them for success after graduation. See what awaits you this year!

Advising Resources:

  • Your Department: If you are declared, check out your department webpage. Visit a department advisor. Find out more about your major and what you can do with it.
  • SST Advising Center: If you are undeclared but would like to know about majors in the School of Science and Technology, visit the general SST advisor in the Darwin Lobby or stop by the School Office (Darwin 115). Be sure to visit the websites of departments you are interested in as well.

Student Clubs in SST:

Student-run organizations combining an interest in the discipline with service and recreational activities. Watch for flyers announcing meetings!

Go Geek:

Geek Week is a competition among the student clubs during March. Activities include tug-of-war, scavenger hunt, dodge ball, and whatever the students decide to help let off a little steam. The week coincides with Pi Day (March 14), hosted by the Department of Mathematics & Statistics. Come on by and get to pie one of your professors, or possibly the Dean!

Public Lecture Series:

Invited talks by scientists, engineers, health professionals, and technology experts providing the latest information in research and technology and applications to industry, health and government. Check the SST web page for more information . Students may sign up for the associated course (Cr/NCr) - check with your advisor.

Research and Service Opportunities:

A degree is more than what you accomplish in the classroom. Become involved with research opportunities or service in the classroom or community.

  • Check with your department to learn more about opportunities to become involved in research or service opportunities in your major.
  • You can also get involved in Supplemental Instruction for classes or as tutors in the Learning Center.
  • Receive training in environmental education or land management through the SSU Nature Preserves

SSU Science Symposium:

April 30, 2014 – Learn about the research students in SST are doing through presentations and posters of scholarship, achievement, collaboration and community outreach. Students, faculty and staff meet in an open and friendly setting while enjoying refreshments and discussing their projects.

Student Programs for Educational Success:

SSU and SST sponsor several programs for broadening the participation of disadvantaged students in science, technology, mathematics, and engineering.
