3 College Junior

Overall Experience: CPP is a great school academically, but the admissions office is atrocious, and it is extremely hard to register for the classes you need! I had to wait over two years to take a general chemistry class before taking it at a different school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since I am the oldest from my family and the first to go to college, I can encourage my two younger brothers to make a better effort in school. I can say this has been my best first year in college although I could not finish in summer due to money issues. I cant pay my own things neither my parents they have to pay the bills and rent and I cant help them because I have been appliying and following up on the jobs and the places I have applied to have not sent me anything only one interview. so hopefully I will get the job done and help myself and my parents pay for my tuition in the summer and in the bills the following years to come.

Thank you in making this survey in order for people to get money and with not so good writing skills

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the library and the people are very kind.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Cal Poly is well known as a commuter school.

But if I had known how "dead" and lifeless the school spirit was, I would of picked a different campus.

Other than that, the classes are not far apart, the Gym is great.

Fun fact; we grow our own produce! and we have a Farm Store that sells what they grow.

Overall Experience: College has definitely been a roller coaster experience. It something I've had to work on a day to day basis. Although you face a number of challenges along the way I can honestly say it's so worth it. I've had to step back many times and take different routes to get to where I am right now but I don't reject any of the decisions I have made. It may have sry me back more than what I would have liked it to but I'm working to achieve something I know is gunna pay itself off in the end. College overall has opened new worlds to me and it's given me the proper tools to build the future of my dreams.

Campus Housing: The dorms look clean, and organized neatly. The campus is just above a decent size. It looks like a social place considering the gym, clubs, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not much since its a baseball school but they have a great gym

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I think from what I've seen that the policies promote a good environment. I am mad though because they couldn't waive my parking citation because I had a rental due to being in a car accident and therefore didn't have my permit.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got my money from cal grant rather than scholarships

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of varieties of off-campus dining, above all, of mexican food.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I personally did not apply to financial aid, but there are a lot of scholarships to which you can apply too.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus changes depending on where you go.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus made my life easier. Although there's not a lot of space in each dorm, the people who you live with are very warm and welcoming. The food is pretty good, and the classes are right next to the dorms. The cost is around 12,000 depending on your meal plan, and if you don't like the dorms, you can try and go to the university suites, which are a little bit more expensive since you don't have to share a room.

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.
