California State Polytechnic University - Pomona Reviews
I transferred to Cal Poly Pomona and loved it, because of my department! I was a history major and loved the professors. The classes were largely discussion based learning and put Cal Ploy's motto to the test: learning by doing. The professors encouraged collaborative learning and engaged every class meeting. The department as a whole was helpful and invested in learning and in the students. I am going into teaching to expose future generations to this style of learning and engagement. I am current in the single subject teaching program, and wish they would offer a credential program that in blended with a master's program in education. A huge disappointment, since a lot of universities do offer such programs.
I loved my time at Cal Poly! It is such a beautiful campus and I always enjoyed being on campus. A lot of the buildings just got updated with fresh paint and amenities, the new BRICK is amazing, and there's tons of food choices on campus. Although it's a big campus, it's easy to get around especially with the Bronco Express. I know they're planning on building a new student center building and expanding housing options too. I enjoyed all my courses and don't think I can complain about too many professors. All the staff and faculty in my department (psychology and sociology) were amazing to work with and very helpful. I would definitely recommend Cal Poly!
Cal Poly Pomona is a great school if your first priority is academics. The dorm life, food, and local area is average. I am in the Apparel Merchandising program and so far it has brought me lots of opportunities. The campus is very diverse and has a lot of activities and on-campus job opportunities, you just have to look for them. The classes follow the "hands-on" learning ethic for the most part and all of my professors have been great and made themselves available to students. I can't wait to see where Cal Poly will take me in a year or two!
