5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ever since I first attended cal poly- the very first day- I've loved it!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My experiance living on campus is great becuase everything else becomes easy. There is no parking problems and no limit of resources.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life at my school is a huge thing. They are always having activities on campus and off campus. The Greek life affects the sociel atmoshere of campus because its a place where students can call home. Greek students and non- Greek students are not viewed differently.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experiance at my school is amazing, espically living on campus. I am able to explore the campus and encounter people more often. What makes my school unique are the students, they make other students feel welcomed. I would choose my school again if I could because I would love to go through the college experiance again.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is great since we have the police department on campus, makes me feel safe being around campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience was great at Cal Poly Pomona some of the professors are hard to understand but love the campus because it is not small nor big, it is in between just perfect.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Going to Cal Poly Pomona makes me realize that students are very sought after by employers because of the hands on approach.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I wouldn't know how housing is on campus because I commuted everyday.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Honestly I am just really busy working and attending my classes that I wouldn't notice how big Greek life is at my school.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: So far the athletics at my school are not really important but do notice that when it comes to basketball season it is really busy and will get full.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: Housing is really easy to get into, I was assigned a triple dorm but it was only filled with two people. The RAs are really good, friendly but direct in emergencies. Both the dorms and the suites are close to a gym and close to a lot of classes. The cost is a little high... But I found that it was worth it to be able to live on campus and get to know new people and immerse myself.

Greek Life: I'm not a part of Greek life, but it's guaranteed to get into a sorority and fairly easy to get into a fraternity. They have parties and school events and do a lot of things to help each other out as far as education.

Athletics: There's a brand new gym that is state of the art and very user friendly. There are pretty nice fields for soccer, baseball, and track and field, as well as a nice basketball gym. Many people in the community come to watch the games and we have some pretty good sports stats.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: This school was made with the idea of learn by doing and I've done a lot just in my first year. As a student I am constantly sent updates about current jobs and events. I can go to almost any professor in a department for help. And everyone is just really nice, it's a very diverse atmosphere and worth every minute and every cent.

Campus Housing: Why would anyone want to live on campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I could care less about Greek life and those who partake in it.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school has been pointless.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its been great so far.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There has never been a time where I felt unsafe. Even when armed men were on camps the school police as well as local agencies alerted us immediately and handled the situation without any one getting hurt.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would still pick my school regardless. Pomona is known for its engineering and the exposure here has been more than I could imagine. I do believe I made the best choice for my future.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being a commuter school I think plays a role in the support of our athletics. Most people just drive here to come to lecture/lab then leave after. Athletics isn't a big part of life here.

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.
