As it stands, Cal Poly Pomona shows to be quite a large school that more-than-sufficiently provides students with extracurricular activities, eateries, quiet spaces, and recreational facilities. In terms of housing, both on-campus and off-campus, it is very difficult, as you'd be competing with hundreds students almost anywhere. Professors are often very accessible with both appointments and office hours, but during lectures, their overall quality tends to be highly "variable." Some professors can be really good at teaching the subjects they've been assigned, adding an air of their personality to make the subject more interesting, and on the other end of the spectrum are professors who either heavily rely on online/interactive textbooks to do the teaching for them, leaving the actual professors to either reiterate that content, or undergo difficult/challenging examples. In short, most facilities are great, but housing can be quite difficult, and the professors are highly variable in quality.
It’s not the worst school but it definitely has its downfalls! All I know is come in with an open mind and you’ll be ok! The engineering department does their best to help students, and as far as I know the remaining colleges on campus (colleges meaning majors) have all exciting and different classes!
I haven't properly reviewed it
Cal Poly Pomona is one of the few colleges that is known to be "hands on". This university follows the motto "Learn by Doing" and believes that students learn more by actually getting hands on experience. The overall academics is very hands on and class sizes tend to be small. There are many clubs on campus that students can get involved in which also can be very hands on. This school is known to be a commuter school so everything on campus tends to be closed during the weekends. Outdoor shoppes or entertainment are around ten minutes away. Overall, academic wise this university does a good job in helping and teaching students and are living up to their motto.

I would say, Greg, the next four or five years are not going to be easy. Physics requires a lot of commitment and the professors will expect the best from you. They will also help you, assist you, guide you. This is not high school anymore. You are an adult, no one is going to hold your hand and ask for your parent's signature. You are in charge of your destiny. If you do not come to class or do not do homework, the college police will not come after you. College is an exciting time, full of opportunities and driven young people all with the same goal you have: to recieve a better education and make a better life for yourself. There are also missed opportunities, and it can become overwhelming. Especially in the last two years, with the course work becoming more difficult, graduation approaching, job interviews or graduate school applications on the horizon. You are becoming an adult, taking charge of your life. All parents and professors can do is to guide you in the right direction, but at the end of the day it comes down to you, Greg. College is the first step.
That they were phasing out my major ! I found out after the fact. No one mentioned it prior to being excepted as a student for that term.
There is a very limited availability of classes. This causes most of the undergraduate students to be incapable of graduating in 4 years.
A commuter school in a bad neighborhood with limited resources for extra curricular activities.
Most of our classes are around 30 students. It make it easier for the professor to answer the students' questions and keep them engaged. Being able to sit close to the professor helps you to keep focussed because he can see you and remembers you. It gives you a reason to go to class, your professor knows when your not there. It also helps to build relationships with your classmates. Studying with peers makes a world of difference. I know from experience of group studying compared to when I do not group study.
A person dedicated to achieving success in college and future career with their degree. A person that understands the value of an education even if the cost is less than most 4 year univeristies.
I cannot recall anything that is truly frustrating about my school, other than the small things that every college campus faces, like the struggle to get into the classes you need.
My school has a "learn by doing" philosophy. This simply means students interact more with the faculty and are able to learn hands on so that they will be prepared for their future careers.
Cal Poly Pomona is a well known engineering school. The College of Engineering is ranked among the top in the country.
The campus size and scenery

Classmates have been helpful and understand we are all trying to accomplish similar goals so there have not been any issues with me personally.
