Cal Poly has a generally attractive student body, no matter who you ask. This is directly affected by the fact that many students spend so much time being active. Most people put their time in at the gym to look good, and it pays off. Cal Poly students generally eat well (many buy lots of produce at the weekly farmers' market) and generally take care of themselves. There are definitely different types of people here, from artists to skaters and everything in between. It's not hard to find someone worthwhile—or at least worth looking at.
Warm weather means that lots of skin is on display; shorts and a tank top are the norm for both genders. People don't generally get too dressed up to go to class—it's not uncommon to see people in their gym clothes or leggings. More important than the aesthetic appeal of the guys and girls is their personalities. Cal Poly students are driven, funny, and generally well-rounded. They work hard and play hard, which makes for an overall fun and successful student body.
