Director's Welcome

Picture Vayta Smith













Hello and welcome to Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC). I have been the Director of Admissions & Records and Enrollment Services at SRJC since 2014, and it has been my pleasure helping students and their families access higher education. I came to the United States from Laos when I was seven years old and enjoyed learning English and making new friends from different cultures.  I first attended and worked as a student assistant at SRJC in the 90’s and transferred to Sonoma State University (SSU) upon graduating with my associate’s degree. I began my professional career at SSU as I studied sociology and multicultural education, earning two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree. As the first to attend college in my family, I have felt great satisfaction in helping to ensure that educational opportunities have been, and continue to be provided and made accessible to all who wish to learn. I look forward to meeting you and helping you be successful at SRJC.
