3 College Junior

Drug Safety: People usually don't pressure you so much or if they do, it's as a joke and they give up relatively easy.

Greek Life: I never joined or tried to join anything regarding the Greek life

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I was not really involved in the athletics of my school but I can see that they were a high priority.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The school was great as most of my classes included some sort of hands-on experience, which really helped me.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: For the most part, this school is great and I am able to find friends to negotiate with, find professors whom take education seriously and whom will do anything in their part to help you to find success. Nevertheless, there are improvements the school can make, such as update the buildings and the technology within them as well. The roads can be paved a little better but everything else is just about right.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My department takes the value of my degree seriously and will do basically anything to help me find a stable job after I receive my degree. The advisers will help you and will give you many options and job opportunities that can help you further into establishing a successful career.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: You are able to receive help and support and in case a situation does arise within this area you can report it and the advisers will try their hardest to help find a resolution.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Although some of the buildings contain all the basic need, the look is outdated and needs some renovation in the near future, so that those students can have a great experience.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Don't know much or whether my school participates in the Greek Life, however, I love many of the Olympic sports they contained in history.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Don't know too much about it due to the fact that I haven't checked many sports out. However, there are a variety of sports to choose from in our campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Met a lot of diverse people and made plenty of friends. The professors for the most part are approachable and easy to talk to and they help you if needed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All engineering classes are held in classrooms, not lecture halls, which limits student enrollment to roughly 40 students maximum. This allows students to have a better chance to have their questions answered and also allows professors to connect with students on a more personal basis.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many engineering industry giants like Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop-Grumman, Parker-Hannifin, and the U.S. Air Force prefer to hire from the Cal Poly Universities over other Cal State schools and UC schools because graduates have been taught HOW to learn and APPLY skills and knowledge to industry problems due to the hands-on focus. Which comes from the plethora of laboratory classes and amazing, internationally ranked extracurricular engineering clubs and competition teams. These companies that I mentioned have formed research partnerships with our students and faculty because we have state of the art labs and determined students.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety services have installed tens of "panic stations" across campus. Once the button at one of these stations have been pushed, a loud alarm sounds and a strobe light turns on to draw attention to the victim's situation. The campus police department is also immediately notified of the location and their officers, armed or unarmed, are very quick to respond as they are constantly patrolling the campus in carts or in police cruisers.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are old, and while some have been renovated, they are still not very spacious. The university puts a ridiculous restriction on freshmen regarding housing, which mandates that any incoming freshmen who does not live within a 30-mile radius of the school is required to live on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have several friends who are involved in Greek life and they really enjoy it. It is challenging to balance their social life with the Frats and their studies (engineering students, mind you), but the Frats require that all members maintain above a 3.0 GPA to stay engaged.

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.
