Cal Poly is not known for its school spirit. In the past, if you went to a sporting event, the cheering section would hardly be very impressive. Students say this is because CPP is missing a very important sport: football.
Despite the lack of a football team, Cal Poly’s school spirit has been steadily rising. Billy Bronco, the mascot, has been making more and more campus appearances. He currently has 3,728 friends on Facebook, which just goes to show the rising popularity of athletics. The Bronco cheerleaders have also stepped it up and are actually starting to compete outside of CPP.
Cal Poly Pomona is best known for its basketball teams. The men’s team has made it to the NCAA playoffs countless times and is near the top of the Division II teams. In fact, Cal Poly Pomona boasts more national titles than any other Division II school in the state of California!
Intramural sports have recently seen a rise in student participation. The current favorite is Ultimate Frisbee, whose team just returned from a competition in Las Vegas. CPP encourages students to head to any game and cheer on their team. After all, it’s free as long as you have your Bronco ID card, and the cheerleaders often throw free Cal Poly merchandise into the stands during half-time.
