3 College Senior

Athletics: I am not much of an athlete but the sports in school are held to a high degree, especially for those who are able to excel in both school and athlete work. The school's basketball teams, for both the men and women, and highly respected and the games are well-attended. Additionally, the new recreational center allows for the the growing popularity of the intramural sports.

Overall Experience: Cal Poly is a wonderful school. It is diverse enough to allow you to fit in whatever category you believe you belong in. The professors are a big help and invest in you as much as you let them.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The gym is the best thing about athletics. The other gyms are not as great because they are used for classes and the teams.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You end up finding a good support system. You also have plenty of areas to study and do homework.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The recent teachers I've had have been great to me. Classes that I have taken were difficult but I was able to pass them all with a grade above a C. This last quarter I took BIO 115 which had a lab, activity, and lecture. The activity was the best and easiest to understand out of the three. Mostly because of my professor, his way of teaching was a little out of the box, and he was so hands on in the lesson. I had a chemistry professor who loved basketball and was willing to do anything to help me understand the class and pass.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Cal Poly is a prestigious school that is well known on the west coast. Graduating from here will definitely look good when I need to get a job or internship. There are also many students who are in the same field of study as myself so those who graduate before me and become active alumni can help me out very much

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe one campus especially since I live on campus. Officers are always patrolling around the campus and there are plenty of safety precautions that the school and police department partakes in. Students get emails informing them on what currently happens on or around campus. We also get texts and phone calls from the school when there is an emergency or alert.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in the suites most of the year after living in the dorms for about a month or so. The dorms are average in terms of space, value and atmosphere. The suites were definitely a better choice for me. I wasn't too far away from classes and I was right across the way from the gym. I could walk around the corner to eat at The Den but it did take about 15 minutes to get to Los Olivos if I wanted to eat there.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is all over the place and the members are always trying to recruit more members. To the non-Greeks Greek life is not a big deal but seem coolish. I am not apart of a group myself so I don't know much about them

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are huge on campus and in the lives of the students and faculty. Support is high especially when the teams are successful in their leagues. The Men's Soccer, Basketball, and Women's Basketball teams are some of the most traditional compared to the other sports available.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I just finished my first year at this university and it was awesome. The other students are great people and its very easy to make friends. Professors are always available for assistance and can be reached multiple ways. Cal Poly's campus is beautiful and different from many of the other schools I have visited.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Courses are very challenging but there are many ways to get extra help. The courses are wonderful and very interesting. The class sizes are kind of big, but its not hard to contact the professor for extra help at all.

Campus Housing: I only lived here during orientation time. The dorms were very nice. It seems great for the freshmen to allow them to get use to the campus. They were also well kept.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

At Cal Poly Pomona, the SoCal attitude slowly spreads to those that haven’t been raised with it, creating a relaxed atmosphere on campus. Students aren’t intensely competitive here as some would be at say, USC or Berkeley, but that doesn’t mean that a large percentage of students don’t constantly push for that high GPA.

Most people are commuters who work as well as attend classes. Many students don’t expect to have a great college experience when they come to CPP because it is known as a commuter school. More often than not, people are surprised at how involved so many students are. You would be impressed to hear how many things an average Cal Poly student juggles, between work, classes, Greek life, and participating in other clubs on campus. When students take advantage of all the fun clubs and activities offered on campus, they always end up admitting how enjoyable their time in college was.

Cal Poly is a unique university, with its hands-on learning policy, widespread diversity, and large spread of majors. It’s located in an area where people from all over can commute to it conveniently enough, making the people you meet varied and always interesting. With Cal Poly, how much you put into the experience is how much you’ll get out. If you avoid joining any clubs and keep to yourself, you won’t benefit from the next four years. But if you push yourself out there, you’ll discover just how much fun attending Cal Poly Pomona can truly be.
