3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have heard of several apartments for rent, and they seem great for the price,freedom and privacy you will get.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I usually dine on campus because I don't drive, but there are several good spots nearby.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Not many people break the rules. There is a lot of respect so strictness doesn't really need to be applied.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't find interest in parties so I wouldn't know.

Campus Food: Wish there were more health foods.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I am commuting from home an hour away to save money so I do not personally know what it is like to live off-campus and locally to campus except for seeing my friends' places. They seem to have decent houses that are cheaper than living on campus but traffic can make a 2 min drive turn into 10-15 minutes.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The closest thing we have to College town is going to Walnut down Valley towards Grand Ave. There are a ton of restaurants, but usually chains that can get boring after awhile. There's Panera, Rubio's, In N' Out, Chik-fil-A, Chipotle, Pieology, and Starbucks. There are a few others that aren't as common which gives the area some diversity and mixes things up a bit.

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.
