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

Athletics: As a student-athlete at CPP, the facilities aren't the best, but the teams we have we all are doing pretty well. In 2014-15 we have win 4 regional titles, which is pretty good. And we are the best CCAA university of the year.

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

4 College Freshman

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.

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.

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.

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.
