    I love the sense of Community at Cal Poly Pomona (since it was my Alma Mater). I love the small class sizes and the fact that we work in groups as well as do projects individually. The education and training I will be getting there will be of a high caliber. I will have a head start in the work world because of Cal Poly's great reputation, name, and network.

    the atmosphere is great, everyone on campus is very friendly and extremely helpful with any problems that may arise. I have yet to run into a problem where someone has told me they CAN'T help me. They always try to help you all the way through or find someone that can.

    I really do like Cal Poly Pomona, even though it wasn't my first choice school. The people here are really nice and the teachers seem to care about their work. There is also a beautiful view of Mount Baldy and we even have our horses right across the street that my friends and I sometimes pet at night. The only things that I would warn prospective students about are that, one, it is a commuter school meaning that on the weekends the campus is pretty much dead because almost everyone goes home. And two, the campus is kind of in the middle of nowhere and hard to leave if you don't have a car. When you go down the street though, which is a few miles away, there's a plaza with places to eat and a Target. It's not too hard finding someone who has a car anyway.

    The school is not very confusing to navigate. If you are lost just ask the friendly students around where a particular building is and the majority of the time they will give you detailed instructions on how to get there.
