4 College Freshman

Greek Life: It doesn't matter if you're a Greek or non-Greek, all students interact the same way.

Greek like creates a more relaxed atmosphere on campus as they generate positivity in student interaction.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing does not apply to me.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't usually dine off-campus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Being a school with great diversity, everyone is accepted and no student feels uncomfortable or out of place. Parties are a great example of this. Students are very accepting of one another and guarantee a great time together The party scene has a positive impact on student experience as it is creates greater interaction and more friendships that are vital to have a great college experience.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The Financial Aid and Scholarships offices are very understanding when it comes to financial difficulties that many students are facing. Even if a student is unable to get financial aid, many scholarships are provided and opportunities always come up year-round for new scholarship applications.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many options to choose from when looking for somewhere to eat on campus. My personal favorites are Subway, Taco Bell, Polly Trolly, Round Table, and most definitely Einstein's Bagels. I'm also very excited for the opening of Hibachi San in the BSC cafeteria. The pricing of the food is very affordable and the employees serving you your food are always very kind, which is always appreciated.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live in off campus housing and have never had a need for it.

Administration: It is not the worst but they could improve.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The people at the financial aid office are willing to help anyone who needs financial assistance.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: There is a great selection if you can't go off campus.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Hey we got a new gym so that says a lot.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's pretty close, yet far? It's close to the campus but it would be a heffty walk to get onto the main campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Honestly we could use more places, that could be closer,everything is a bit far

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's good to see that they actually try to keep their rules up and all

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: DO IT ON TIME DON'T LAG ON IT ALRIGHT!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is great, though I honestly wish there were more healthy options.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There has been a problem of being waitlisted for certain classes, especially general education classes. The professors on campus all have office hours that are accessible. For general education classes, the largest the class would be is probably 90 students, but as you get more into your core classes there are probably 20-40 students depending on the class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a career center on campus and they host job fairs and workshops ranging from how to interview to how to get an internship. The career center is extremely helpful, they even look over resumes for students applying to jobs or internships.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police is always available and you can call to get an escort to walk you to your car or suite/dorm if it is late. I feel safe living on campus and have had no problems.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The fraternities always host parties, but sometimes it is exclusive to members. There is a club near by, called crazy horse, many students go there to party, but it is the only club that is not too far from campus. Most students travel out side of Pomona to go to parties, like to Riverside.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The best places to eat on campus are Subway, Panda Express, Dennys, and Los Olivos Commons. The dining hall Los Olivos is buffet style and they have a good selection of food and the price is reasonable. For student's living on campus, they can use their meal plan anywhere on campus.

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.
