Weather: In CPP, we have a great variety of weather. It is not too cold, and not too hot but rather just perfect.

3 College Senior

Weather: The weather is usually constant but it might change a bit too drastically for me at night to how long I plan on staying on campus is usually my indicator for the local weather.

4 College Student

Weather: It's hotter than near the beach where I live, but it really isn't that bad, and I wasn't expecting anything better than beach weather.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Cal Poly is located smack-dab in the middle of Southern California, which means constant SoCal weather. For commuter students, the only downside of the heat is having to walk across campus from your car to class.

The weather allows CPP to hold the majority of its events outdoors because it is almost always nice. Cal Poly is also close to several beaches, such as Huntington or Newport, so there are always weekend beach trips being planned. Be warned, though: although this means 85% of the school year is hot and sunny, it can get cold and rainy that other 15%!

No need for snow pants; it never snows in Pomona. Make sure you pack an umbrella because California has been known for its torrential downpours. CPP students are notorious for wearing flip-flops every day—even if it’s raining! If there is a need for snow, students make the short drive to Mountain High. After all, even the coldest day at CPP can’t compare to the cold, snowy days some other colleges contend with!
