IEEC went to: Great America Theme Park Event
This event was held Sunday, May 7th at 9:00am until 8:00pm. We had two full cars of SSU international, SSALI, and NSE students all who wanted to have fun together at Great America! Not that many people were there so we were able to ride almost every ride and not wait in line for most of them! What luck and we had tons of fun together the whole day!
IEEC went to Bodega Bay!
IEEC club members enjoyed a beautiful, windy day at Bodega Bay on Saturday! Thank you everyone that was able to make it out!

Need a Car?
Sonoma State is now providing Zipcar services to students. This allows students to reserve a vehicle through the app and use the provided vehicles when needed.
When you apply you must wait to receive the actual zipcard in the mail, which is similar to a SSU ID card, before you can start driving.
International students are also qualified to participate in the program. Follow this link for more information and to get started on using this service!
