What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thought CPP was a pathetic backup school and coming in I had immediate plans to transfer out as soon as possible. I am now at junior standing and I have no intentions or desires to transfer. What can I say? The school grew on me. The professors I have had the honor of knowing have been amazing and inspiring. Sure, there are some difficult, cranky, hardcore professors out there but it is what you make of it. There are tons of resume-boosting opportunities if you look well through your college or handshake profile. The food may be mediocre but the Panda Express near Building 5 makes the crispiest Orange Chicken out there. However, the parking is a nightmare. The kind of nightmare you wake up to and face. If you want to avoid the parking crisis, take 8:00 AM classes like I do or live on-campus. I had a panic attack driving around for close to 30 minutes to find parking. Overall, this school has more pros than cons and it becomes a comfortable environment one can flourish in if time, effort and (of course) money is invested into your 3-4 years at CPP. It may not be the most prestigious but you get every bang for your buck (no pun intended).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before I started attending one of my Friends told me he worked on the roof of the CLA building (the tall pointy building in the center of campus) when it was being built. He has worked on a multiple university building in southern California. He told me that the culture/vibe of the students and staff on campus was the nicest and friendliest of all the campuses he spent time on. When I started my first quarter at Cal Poly Pomona I felt completely comfortable. I felt at home which made me proud to be part of the community. The bric is Amazing!! One of the top engineering schools in the nation, and my major, hospitality management is the top rated program in California according to U.S. News. I am a commuter so I'm not on campus very much unless I have class or am meeting with a team. I wish I was so I can participate more on campus, but I work full time where I live. The motto, Application of Knowledge, translates to a learn by doing approach, which can be seen on campus with all the team projects you can see taking place throughout the campus. I love this school and am Proud to be called a Bronco!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has such a beautiful campus! I love it. I have taken many personal campus tours there with my sister. She currently attends Cal Poly Pomona, she personally knows CPP of her own. I hear that this school has great reviews and is extraordinary in academics. CPP is known to be one of the greatest schools in the state of California.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion on California State Polytechnic University of Pomona is that it is the ideal school for those students that are hands-on learners. The whole polytechnic part is very stressed at this school which is very useful because you begin to gain experience. This will further your knowledge on your specific major which will in turn be handy in the future when applying to jobs. Also, it begins to give you an idea as to what life after receiving a degree will be like since the student will have more opportunity to enter into a job or career related to their major.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I definitely think I made the right decision attending Cal Poly Pomona. The class sizes are relatively small so there is a better chance of meeting with the professor after class and asking questions. There are a lot of clubs to participate in and the culture centers are very welcoming. From what I’ve seen, the professors are there to provide education and most will do a good job to find relatability. I honestly can’t say too much on sororities, fraternities, and parties since my main priority is education but I’d assume they’re cool to be a part of. I can’t imagine myself anywhere else and I’m excited to eventually say that I received my bachelors in applied mathematics from California State Polytechnic University Pomona.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Cal Poly is a good school. It's cheaper than a lot of other universities, the class sizes are alright, and there's a lot of places to visit nearby. However, because it's a commuter school, parking is always a struggle, and getting the classes you need can be hard.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To begin with, Cal Poly Pomona is a beautiful campus that makes studying fun and enjoyable when being outdoors. The Library is the best part of this campus because there are many resources available and there is easy access to what you need. The professors are overall great but some lack enthusiasm to teach and that is what students need to have the motivation to learn. Another negative aspect of this school is that it is very antisocial, many f the students are always on their phones when walking around campus making it difficult to interact with them. To add on, the events that are at school are not publicized​ very well because I have a difficult time figuring out when some events are taking place. Cal Poly Pomis is a great school and I encourage students to come to Pomona but this school does need some improvements to get the students more involved.
