I love being part of cal-Poly's Community. Great academic, as well as, recreational environment. The students in Cal-Poly have a big role in the development and maintenance of their learning environment. In other words, students have a voice. The campus is diverse and holds a lot of cultural events. The staff and teachers are professional and courteous. They care about the students' learning and further development.

Cal Poly Pomona is great as far as the professors and student services it has. However, diversity is an issue here. It is a Hispanic Serving Institution but there is a lack of a black student population. Some of the departments at my university also lack diversity in their faculty. This can be an issue for students of color not being able to connect with professors on a personal level. It also hurts when looking for a mentor within your program. It’s a good campus to get an education, but if you want professional development, you really have to dig deep outside of class. Student involvement is not a great as it used to be as well.
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.
