Most Helpful Review for California State Polytechnic University-Pomona

CPP's staff is unmatched in many ways. Being an architecture major, I've met some of the best in the field and have been taught by professors who have been in the business a long time. Some classes can be frustrating if you have a teacher who doesn't take the time to show up, answer questions, and offer office hours.

    Cal Poly Pomona is a very diverse campus that focuses the education around the motto, Learn by Doing. This holds true in that class sizes are small compared to other universities and the professors teach hands on with the class. Overall, CPP is a beautiful campus with friendly students and helpful faculty.

    Cal Poly Pomona has a lot to offer to its students from on campus events, housing, academic help, athletic involvement, and career help. Because this university is based on the polytechnic standard of teaching, as in learning by doing, there are a lot of programs that students are able to receive hands on experience; such as working with the farm animals and horses in their units, working at the on- campus hotel and restaurant, as well as being able to work with children at the daycare and special motor development center. This campus is a great fit for anyone looking for hands on experience, close to internships in LA, focused on getting a good education, and interested in being involved in many campus programs and clubs.

    Cal Poly Pomona's motto is Learn by Doing, and I'll be honest, at first I wasn't too sure what this meant, but starting my second year in the university, I can clearly see how it's greatly incorporated in a lot of the classes. For example, nearly all science classes come paired up with a lab class in which you apply the techniques mentioned in your lecture class. Aside from the curriculum, the staff is pretty great and I've been lucky enough to have really caring teachers for my classes.

    My years at CPP have been the best portion of my life. I have had many new and exciting experiences that I otherwise would not have had if I turned down my acceptance. There's so much diversity on campus that it feels like it is its very own microcosm.

    Comfortable campus with quiet study areas when you need them. So far, most of my professors have been reasonable. With the 4-Year Pledge I received/will continue to receive Priority Registration as long as I stick with my major and keep my grades up.
