What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If they want there child to be safe but not trapped and to have fun and learn a lot, they should attend Cal Poly Pomona. You also get your money's worth because it is pretty affordable compared to other campuses.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Students (and parents) should realize that even if they don't get into their first-choice school, they still will learn, which is what college is all about. Students can get the most out of their college experience by actively participating on campus through clubs and organizations or through joining sport teams. Students should make time to spend with their friends, but also take their studies seriously, which means turning in homework on time, not ditching class, and studying an appropriate amount of time before tests. Students should get to know their classmates, advisers, and professors because it will greatly enhance their enjoyment of college if they get to know lots of people. Even if students don't end up earning a degree , they should still understand that the knowledge they gained and the friendships they developed and cultivated in college can last a lifetime.

What kind of person should attend this school?

One who wants to learn and will be serious about studying and getting involved on campus.

Dont let the name of the school or the reputation affect where your child goes, i got alot of weird looks and sighs when i said where i was going and now i am happier than any of my friends who went to places such as brown, stanford and ucla. My friends were pressured into going to big names school and was not given the chance to go somewhere they loved like i was. I consider myself very lucky.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That classes were going to be kind of hard to come by.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When your major is decided research all schools that offer that major and different areas within your major. Once various schools are found go and visit them, walk around campus, meet with some advisors, administration, and talk to some students that attend that school. Doing that will allow you to judge if that school is right for you in different ways. When you choose the college that is right for you sign up for clubs, get involved and get to know your professors and peers. The more involved you are the better chances you have in succeeding in your futrue area of interest. You make long life friends, career connections, and get help from professors in getting into graduate schools.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

No supportive help in future decisions from advisors or professors and the whole school from administration to financial aide is completely disorganized.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To find the right college, you need to look for diversity in the majors and the clubs and organizations that are offered. Definitely, your first-choice major should be available. Like many college students, you may have doubts about your major and may want to change it. If you do decide to change, you may want to consider back-up majors that you may also be interested in. Simply taking classes and going home is quite boring and is not part of the full college experience. That is why it is important that the university you are considering should to have a wide variety of clubs and organizations so that at least one suits your interests. Clubs and organizations are a great way to pursue an interest and share it with others, network, and make many friends, hopefully forging lifelong friendships.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The location of the Student Health Services building because it is on a corner of the campus map. Also, it is located next to parking lots and buildings that require reaching them by going uphill. In that way, it seems separated from the rest of the campus and inconvenient to get to. Living on campus for the last two years, I needed to walk for at least ten minutes in order to get to the Health Services. It was especially tedious to make that walk when I had back spasms.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Given that it is a public state university, Cal Poly Pomona, among the rest of the California State University system, has suffered from the state buget cuts this past year. Before the cuts, it was difficult enough to enroll into classes. The cuts forced numerous teachers from the science and math departments to be fired. Keeping in mind that original enrollment difficulty, science and math classes were cut in half. To add insult to injury, those classes majorly consisted of general education classes required of Engineering majors, which is what the university is widely know for.
