The Grounds at Santa Rosa Junior College have long been admired as some of the most beautiful in the California community college system. This was no accident. Our college has a rich history of dedicated people who have committed themselves to preserving our native Oaks and enhancing our landscapes for the benefit of all who visit this place. The present day staff are proud to continue in this tradition and strive to preserve our Heritage trees, maintain the beauty and functionality of the campus, and help create a more inspiring learning environment each day.
