Is a really diverse university. The campus is really safe. You can found lots resource in our library. You can get tons of help in library. We have a Starbucks store in our library. Professors are cool and nice. Our class size on average is like 25-30. So is really easy to get along with them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

California State Polytechnic University is a great school for undergraduate study, especially for engineering. Being involved on campus makes the work load seem more manageable. Although campus food might be overpriced, Cal Poly Pomona definitely makes up for it in providing opportunities/facilities for hands on experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that the campus is beautiful and the faculty is great. I have never had a problem with being able to talk to one of my professors about academics or life in general. I feel very safe on campus, of course just like anywhere I always make sure that someone knows where I am going. I am very happy that I chose CPP.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Cal Poly Pomona is an excellent school in my opinion, with a beautiful campus, friendly people, and an engaging academic culture. I have only been here for less than two months, but I very much enjoy this school and intend to stay here until graduation. I would highly recommend it to prospective students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although administration can be difficult to deal with, the amount of job opportunities offered in your field and the education you receive are completely worth it. The campus is so beautiful, and there are multiple quiet study spaces and student recreation areas for both business and play. Food on campus is awesome, with a Qdoba (chipotle-esque Mexican food place), subway, Peet’s Coffee, Hibachi-san (chipotle-esque Japanese Poke place), and a Round Table Pizza all in one building, adjacent to a games room complete with a pool table, skee-ball, game consoles, ping-pong, and a small movie theater. Plus there’s like three Starbucks on campus so that’s amazing. The mess hall/ cafeteria has pretty decent food on average, but they don’t post what they’re serving outside the mess hall and you don’t know what you’re having until you go in, which can be a problem on occasion. However, there is a build-your-own-bowl Mongolian Grill, a deli, a salad bar, and a pizza place inside the mess hall, so there is certainly variety. The French fries though? I could eat those all day. ALL. DAY. The academic advisors are wonderful; they’re available, helpful, they send out reminders via email about club meetings and application deadlines; they forward any information about scholarship or internship opportunities they receive, and are willing to help guide students plan their curriculum course at Cal Poly Pomona in order to graduate in four years. Housing is perfect except for the proximity issue; the suites are across the campus from the mess hall, and the dorms are across the campus from the main gym (there is one closer to the dorms, and it’s just as functional if a bit older).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Learn by doing is what is great about Cal Poly Pomona. I love Pomona , so growing up here I couldn't imagine leaving this city. Now, that I am so close to getting my degree, I want to travel to places so that I can apply what I have learned these past two years in my career. I am very excited because I already have job offers and it is because of my involvement at school. I have opened my mind and expectations to something greater because of the inspiring people I meet every day here everywhere. I want to be able to be that person now and in my future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly love it here, the atmosphere is nice. The campus is pretty and there tends to be something going on everywhere you look. The classes have a range from 20 students to around 60, which is not a lot for a college. Really a great place to learn!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Cal Poly is very high. I believe my school is beneficial to my leaning style due to the, "learn by doing," atmosphere. My classes are relatively small, 30 people or less in my non-lecture classes, so class discussions are easy to partake in, and student-teacher interaction is very accessible. My chemistry lecture class has roughly 100 students, which is still relatively small considering it is a class many people are required to take on campus. I am also in the Kellogg Honors College, which is very beneficial if one likes to have small class sizes. Class size is limited to 20 people, and the discussion tend to be more in depth. The KHC is also an incredible resource for finding scholarship opportunities, as well as internships. The KHC has connections to many outside sources that go specifically to the honors college first to look for students. My only critique with the school would be the expense of on-campus housing. I live in the dorms, in a double occupancy room, which costs roughly $14,000 for three quarters. That is twice the amount for tuition. However, if one can get financial aid, it is easier to manage, but still a lot to spend on simple housing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

LOVED this university, and wish they offered my master's program so I could have stayed. I transferred in from Mt. San Antonio College and received a BA in Gender, Ethnicity, and Multicultural Studies (GEMS). Transferring in when I was 23, I was not interested in the Greek life or any of those social events. I was there for myself and wanted to get in-and-out as quickly as possible. Having graduated from GEMS with priceless information that I can use on a daily basis, I've acquired the upmost respect for this school and the faculty and staff who assisted in my undergraduate success. The school itself is a little outdated and only the most popular majors (business, engineering, architecture, etc...) get the newest buildings. The smaller majors, such as mine, gets older classrooms however, the rooms are typical and are in no way distracting to ones education. The absolute best thing that I loved, that I felt helped with my academic success, was meeting with the chair of my department and having her tell me what was expected of me before I entered the program. This alleviated stress and I began to form a relationship with her, which came in handy the two years I was there. I would advise anyone to do the same with chairperson of their department. The library is wonderful and I didn't know it had so many levels until a few months prior to graduation. The new WREC Center, gym area, is also very nice though I never got a chance to use it. They also have so many places to eat! I never understood the "freshman ten" until I got here! Because of the age in which I entered Cal Poly, my mindset was very different than that of an incoming freshman however, I think anyone would love the amenities this school has to offer. Their textbooks are VERY CHEAP compared to Mt. SAC and my current graduate program (that I miss), although 1-2pm is prime time for classes and can take you over an hour to find a parking spot at times, so give yourself enough time to find a spot! The only con I had with this school was the parking. In the two years I was here I received three parking tickets, one of which was not my fault and I showed the discrepancy I found on their parking website. They could care less. They are also REALLY FAST at giving out parking tickets, my other two tickets given 10-15 minutes after parking my car. Don't mess around with their parking attendants. Other than that, I loved the experience here. I now understand why people have so much pride in their alma maters. This school introduced me to a major that was 100% meant for me, put me in the presence of the most educated and open-minded faculty and staff, and awarded me my bachelors. I love this school and will always speak well of it, as well as my GEMS program.
