5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown SLO offers amazing food and I love exploring all the different options.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The recreation center is beautiful and I enjoy using the facilities frequently. The school rallies around the soccer and basketball teams. Club sports are huge as well.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If you use a landlord, finding off campus housing can be simple and an easy process. There is not much inventory right near campus, but there are many great options a little more far out.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene can be fun, but it is important to travel in groups and stay safe. The school has cracked down on fraternities regarding sexual assault, so campus is trying its best to ensure safety.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have had a very pleasant time in campus housing and would recommend the Towers. I have had a great time in the dorms and will always have fond memories. RA's are great, and I've met incredible friends.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is accessible and ensures student safety as well as they possibly can.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I do not receive scholarship, but I know that the CSU system has been pretty good about helping families pay for college.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food options aren't great, but I love using Plus Dollars at Starbucks, Einsteins, and Jamba Juice.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's fantastic to live off campus if you can find it.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's kind of annoying how often Greek Life does stuff to get themselves suspended. But the amount of house parties are fairly high and they are a lot of fun.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's something for everyone who comes to San Luis Obispo. There's so many local places to explore.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are very clear about the rules at the beginning of the year and they seem fair.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The aid I got from the government was easy to obtain, but the school itself gives out very minimal in scholarships, that's to be expected though because it is a public university.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is so average hurts. Plus, there's many stories of people getting food poisoning.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There's many places to go, it's very central to on campus amenities and it's also central in San Luis Obispo.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are some really good off campus options, not the most diverse, but there's definitely some good stuff out there.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: not easy to get financial aid if you are out of state, but it's possible. probably won't get a lot though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not the best food options, but definitely survivable.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in PCV and there's lots of amenities, nearby to better food, and it's always really clean.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They give nothing to out of state people.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Cal Poly students generally have nothing bad to say about their time spent in San Luis. A good part of the permanent-resident community attended Cal Poly once upon a time, which is a testament to how much people love San Luis Obispo. Members of the community enjoy discussing time-tested traditions and activities with current students whenever they run into them. There is absolutely a shared love of Cal Poly throughout the community.

The "learn by doing" philosophy truly does permeate all majors and aspects of campus life, and this is one of the things that sets Cal Poly apart most. Students truly do get the opportunity to collaborate with a wide range of people to get to produce tangible evidence of their degrees. Students are prepared extremely well for after-college life since there are so many opportunities to develop a skill set and grow. When asked about their favorite aspects of Cal Poly, nearly every student will say that "everything," "the people," and "the weather" are their favorite qualities. You can't go wrong with these three!
