California State Polytechnic University in Pomona I is local to where I live and I found it t to be a great school to attend of interest in any kind of math or engineering major, this school has a great value that you get back. The money invested to this school based on statistic pays back what you have made.

As a commuter is can be a bit challenging at times when taking any kind of transportation. Most of the people are friendly and the friends you make (to me) are what really make your experience here much more fun and enjoyable. Me and my friends go out and hang out outside of schools since there are many great places to eat. We go to the beach, hike, workout, have hangouts and whatever else we can think of since everything is close by. After your first year, you may see many familiar faces (that is if you talk to others)
