What is your overall opinion of this school?

An overall rating of Cal Poly Pomona is a little above average, but definitely has space for improvement. The involvement of students should be encouraged to lead to a more unifying college. The campus is beautiful and they currently expanded it with a new student center building as well as expanding housing options. The school offers a variety of classes and majority of the professors do care about their fellow students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I was applying for college, my goal was to enroll in a school where I could study fashion design. Cal Poly Pomona was one of the schools that met my requirement. I took a tour of the fashion building and instantly fell in love with the school. My love of the university grew with the completion of my first year. The school offers ample assistance at the tutoring center. The tutors explain chapters in a way that is easy to understand. The professors, who are easy to talk to, also helped me by going over the difficult lessons. Tutors and professors were the key to me gaining exceptional grades in multiple classes. On top of academic opportunities, social opportunities are also provided. Parties, club events, dances, and festivals are just a few of the activities offered at Cal Poly Pomona. At these events I made friends that I’m still friends with to this day. When it comes to the freshman dorms, that is another story. The freshman dorms are like any other university dorms. The freshman dorms provide many places to socialize with friends and to make new ones. When comes to studying however, the freshman dorms provide too many distractions. That is when the library comes in handy. The library provides multiple quiet study spaces and sound proof rooms for students and groups study. The library also has a 24-hour computer lab. Overall, Cal Poly Pomona is a perfect university to study, Fashion, Agriculture, Engineering, Business and more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While I have only attended my first semester, I really do enjoy many aspects of my campus. I like that I'm at a University that is known for engineering and it really shows because they have many internship, and extracurricular activities and clubs one can get involved In. Some of the professors in my department can difficult to reach, bad at teaching and even discouraging at moments but I'm satisfied with my academics so far. There is plenty to choose from in terms of food on campus, the only gripe I have is that there aren't many vegan options. They just built a brand new gym that i absolutely love going to, they have rock climbing , swimming, martial arts and so much more. I really do look forward to the next two years and hope to make the best of my time on campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cal Poly Pomona is an amazing, diverse school that offers a wide variety of programs that students can choose from. With so many things to do from visiting the Japanese Garden, relaxing at the rose garden, to even feeding ducks; there is so much to do and so many things that the school offers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my first year in college but so far things have gone well. The professors all teach their respective subjects very nicely and I've had a deeper understanding of music. In addition, I have improved my piano skills by quite a bit as before coming here I have minimal piano experience. I feel safe and despite being away from home, I'm glad to have met people here that are welcoming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cal Poly Pomona is a great school that offers a challenging curriculum on top of it's "learn by doing" motto. If you are an active person they have amazing facilities and equipment including the tallest rock climbing wall in the CSU system. The people are accepting and encourage you to do the best you can do to achieve the best outcome in your college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Honestly, CPP has been my dream school since high school, so I will try to keep the bias from affecting my review. All in all, it is a great school that, like most other schools, is trying to connect more with its students and trying to give a better campus life to us. From my particular experience, there has been no faculty member that has not been able to teach me effectively, no student issues like safety, inaccessibility, or other student-to-student encounters of the negative kind. We're all just kind of here to learn and study, which is great compared to less effective party schools and the like. Campus is really quiet most of the time, with interactions being between students of their own respective majors, which is convenient because we each get our own building for each major. This helps with classroom placement and a general "home base" to those who are new on campus. The facilities are great and updated, from 2 separate market buildings and plenty of food choices around campus, to a fully equipped gym and several on campus study areas. The library is a great place to go study, as it's right in the center of the campus. The college administration itself is branched a lot towards the individual majors themselves, which means each building has its own line of administrators and clubs and activities and the like. A very great and varied school to study at and we welcome any new additions with open arms!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CPP is a great school overall, but since the everyone is a commuter, you don’t really form that many close friends in class which is why you should join extracurriculars like Greek life and clubs. The classes are of a reasonable size and the professors are usually available via email or office hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cal Poly Pomona is particularly focused on a learn by doing approach. Its most highly rated and valued majors are in architecture, agriculture, engineering and hospitality management. Other majors include humanities, business administration, science, social sciences, and the arts which still hold value, however, not the most highly rated. It is a campus where there is a tremendous melting pot of diversity and culture. The average classroom size is anywhere between 25-45 students. More than half of the students who attend this university commute by vehicle or public transportation. Academic advisers are friendly and approachable when students have any questions about their academics or on campus extracurricular activities. I highly recommend an adequate plan before enrolling at this university since there is a countless number of applicants on a waiting list who are expecting to be accepted. The main reason I'm recommending an adequate plan has to do with the information that is available out there through people or online. Unfortunately, we are living in a time where education in this country is not at its best point in history. Many of us have already heard through online platforms, mainstream media, and social media that the traditional 4-year college may take longer. Usually the 4-year traditional college is taking 6 years or more as a consequence of a countless number of reasons. Some of the reasons may include: student loans and student debt, a massive pool of applicants consisting of first time freshman and transfer students, and classes wait listed, full or closed as a result of the number of staff and professors that have plummeted over the last years since the recession. Too often, classes may be wait listed, full or closed because of the number of seats that have already been filled by a large number students who are registering for core major classes. Unfortunately, having late registration may end up causing students missing on required courses that need to be completed in order to move on to the next set of classes. Students may also encounter difficulty in registering for classes because they have not met certain prerequisites in order to be enrolled in a particular class of their major. That in turn, causes many students to set back or slow down in their progress toward earning a college degree. Another important reason that is causing college students to take longer is the mistake of taking extra classes or unnecessary classes that don't count toward a degree's course requirements. Course repetition can also interfere in making it to graduation on time whether the norm is 4-6 years depending on the choice of major. However, first time freshman students and transfer students can seek help by utilizing school services that will help and guide them in planning which classes count and need to be taken every quarter or semester of the year so that they stay on track. It is extremely important that students consult with an academic adviser about an adequate plan that will guide them through attaining their degree without difficulty in a step by step approach. One "key" advice is asking for a Graduation Pledge/ 4-year Pledge that may guarantee priority registration for classes in order to graduate in a shorter time period. These are a few good recommendations, that way students will not experience tripping or falling because of the mistakes just mentioned above. I am just one of many former students who went through academic mistakes. I wouldn't be sharing my own academic experience if it was not real like many others. My recommendation is to not repeat the same simple errors of not keeping track of courses and requirements. Visit and seek help from a mentor or academic adviser for major course requirements and academic holds frequently if you have worries, doubts or questions. Remember, there is a saying that says, "A second chance doesn't mean anything if you didn't learn from your first." I wouldn't be sharing all of this if I hadn't learned something from my first mistakes. After all, mistakes are part of learning and being able to share those mistakes with others makes the learning experience even more interesting because now everyone around you has a chance to acknowledge it. Although you may have not known before, they now know about it and the best part of it all is that they are now more aware, prepared and ready for it. Ready for what's next at a university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe this is the perfect school for me! When I came here for the first time during orientation, I automatically knew this was home for me for the next three years. I love the outdoorsy feel and environment. There's a farm so while driving by, you could see cows and horses which is something great for an animal lover like me.
