Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2011

Overall Rating

Over all I think Cal Poly is a great school that offers a lot to learn from. They offer a great variety of clubs, people, and events. The thing I liked most about the campus was it's location. On a nice day you can stroll through the Japanese Garden and feel enlightened.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2006

Overall Rating

The school was good. However, social life is non-existent. It also felt like a community college. Teachers were hit and miss. Some teachers were really good and some were really bad. You should def research your teachers by looking at sites to make sure you get the best ones. Bonus: They do a good job hooking you up with jobs after graduation.
