Cal Poly is the melting pot of the Cal States; pretty much every ethnicity you can think of is represented on this campus! Every class you attend will have a broad mix of people in it. Although Cal Poly doesn’t get a lot of students from out of state, it does get quite a few international students! CPP is actually one of the top 20 schools in the western region for international students.
Not only are the students from many different parts of the world, but the teachers are, too. Because of the many different majors offered, Cal Poly pulls its faculty from all over. There are over 30 cultural clubs located on campus for you to check out. They are constantly selling different types of ethnic foods as fundraisers, so you can smell it as you exit class. It’s a delicious way to steer clear of the repetitive campus choices. It’s very refreshing to see so many different people on campus and to hear their experiences and opinions in a class setting.
No matter where you go after you graduate, you will be forced to deal with a multitude of people from all different backgrounds. Cal Poly is a great example of what life will be like after graduation: full of a variety of people.
