4 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had any problems with the administration here.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't receive scholarships. I received loans. However, the loans came without a hassle.

College Freshman

Party Scene: The party atmosphere seems to be nonexistent.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I wish you could cash out at other places, and not just Dennys and the markets.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The building itself is poor, but the community is great.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aresome pretty good places close by

3 College Freshman

Administration: Could be better, could be worse

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Yes, you get money, but the financial aid office is a pain gto work with, often unhelpful, and they donp't remind you of deadlines

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is ideal if you have a car. It is a lot cheaper to live off campus then on campus, but only worth it if you have a car.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I would definitely say the variety is great, but locations do not stay open late which can be problematic for college students because many times we are up late studying and want food after. I would like to see student discounts in the areas close to the school because I feel they get a lot of their profit from the college students in the area.

3 College Senior

Administration: I believe administration does what they feel is best to keep the campus and the students safe which is beneficial to everyone.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Applying early and making sure you have all of your paperwork in on time is a huge help. In case you are missing anything, you will be notified early enough to where it won't inconvience you.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I would say the party scene at Cal Poly is not that big and the majority of the parties take place before the quarter starts or after finals which is beneficial to the students because they don't interfere with studies.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: I feel that there is not enough variety on campus and not enough healthy options such as multiple places that offer salads.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived in our campus suites and as a freshman I regret this because it was very secluded. As a freshman you want to meet new people and engage with those that live around you. The dorms provided that and everyone would keep their doors open and gracefully talk to everyone. Whereas with the suites, it was a fire hazard to keep the doors open, you did have more space and a living room but the social aspect was lost.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Nearby and i get free thai tea in a nearby restaurant!

4 College Freshman

Administration: i like how even though marijuana is legal (medical use), it is not permitted on campus at all.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: i haven't gone to any parties at my school.

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.
