Overall Experience: It is a good school. Transferring overing to cal poly from mtsac was difficult. At first it was confusing but after a while you get use to it.

Overall Experience: Make sure to try to find professor reviews to see what you are getting yourself into. Classes range from easy to challenging, no matter what major/minor you are going for.

Health & Safety: There have been a few cases of sexual assault, ranging from very serious to very odd (man licked toes of unsuspecting victims around campus). Mandatory Title IX trainings happen every few months, which often end up with annoyed and angry students. If you don't feel safe, campus security can escort you anywhere on campus for free. There are also big blue poles with emergencies buttons attached to them around campus for extra safety measures.

Campus Housing: I've heard good and bad sides of on campus housing. The dorms seem to be below average, but great for socializing. The suites look very clean, spacious, and have better amenities. The Village (campus apartments) seem to be overpriced with just an "okay" setting. CPP is mostly a commuter school, yet I have heard of people not being able to get a spot for on campus housing because there is no room. Also, parking is really frustrating in the late morning/afternoon.

Greek Life: Like I said in my earlier review, joining Greek Life has been the best part of my college experience. Although it is relatively small, most of us seem to be enjoying and making the most out of it. There are many misconceptions about Greek Life, which can be really upsetting when people start to judge based of that alone. Throughout the year, it is very likely you will see the Greek community table around campus and fundraise for various charities.

Athletics: There is no current football team. Basketball and Baseball can be entertaining to watch, and the teams do pretty well in games. People who I have met that are involved in intramurals are generally pretty athletic and seem to like it, so kudos to them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: First thing that most notice is how big and how beautiful the campus is! CPP has been renovating a lot in the past few years and is in the process of creating a new administrative building. Not to mention, CPP is a very diverse school with friendly people! Registration for classes every quarter can be frustrating unless you are involved in something that gives you priority registration. It is typical for students to stay an extra quarter or an extra year to obtain their degree. With that being said, it's a good thing that CPP is a pretty affordable school, especially if you do not dorm. Another good thing is that professor's genuinely want you to succeed. There are some who will go easy on their students and some who will not, so try to find professor reviews to get a good balance and to be prepared. Greek life on campus is small/medium and has personally given me a better college experience. If you can afford it, keep up with it, and still focus on school, I highly recommend pledging yourself to a chapter. Not much to do in the actual city of Pomona, so find some friends and create your own unique social lives.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are a graleat way to make new friends and have that great college experience

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't have enough information about Greek life to give my honest opinion

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone loves going to the games and they all have fun

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love how diverse the campus is and all the fun activities they have to offer

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I've only taking one class and the professor was great, I thought professors don't care and are mean but she always stopped to make sure she knew if we all got it and she knew my name. Class sizes are no bigger than 50 so its great.

Campus Housing: Its super dirty, old and they need bigger and newer buildings I almost want to switch schools because of the cost and of how horrible the freshman dorms are.

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.
