" Cal Poly is a great school for learning engineering, however the food here is horrible. Like most places, you will get a wide variety of people to meet and communities to join. Coming here again, I would definitely come with a friend, it was hard for me to meet new people especially since all of the people I did meet only wanted to party. "

" Great school, I studied engineering so it felt like I lived underneath a rock sometimes. There are clubs and other activities available that can allow one to connect with others. I would also recommend not living on campus all four years (or however many years) of your program. "

" Great school. Learn by doing! I have been able to start companies, meet amazing mentors, and geet involved in the programs in this school. I would find your niche group on campus so you can find friends who are like yourself. "

" Cal Poly is great for Engineering and Agriculture students. I was in Psychology and there were visibly less resources for the social sciences. However my professors were great and supportive. If you are in a program that graduates with a BA prepare to get hounded by STEM students, but don't let it get to you! "

" For me, the Cal Poly experience has been incredible. While the workload may be relatively high, that's to be expected for a top tier University and I am fully able to stay afloat. In general proffesors are wonderful, support resources are abundantly available, and the experience is good. My only complaint is that some facilities are less modern than I would like. "
