World class programs all over campus, engineering, computerQuite Bright
World class programs all over campus, engineering, computer forensics, hospitality management, architecture, entertainment marketing, agribusiness, supply chain name it! Even in a down economic cycle Cal Poly Pomona has surged ahead with top notch teachers and deans from the best universities in the nation. And you do real world projects in the nation's second largest city that will get you cutting edge jobs. Boeing for example hired almost half of one program's graduating class en masse this year. The campus is over the top beautiful with a working horse ranch and farm part of the mix...simply incredible!

Both in my major of marketing and acrossBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Both in my major of marketing and across the entire university we've seen a dramatic improvement in academic quality over the past year or two. Lazy and incompetent faculty and administrators have left and replaced by a new group with integrity, standards and expertise. Admissions are much tougher. And most importantly this year's class of graduating seniors have a better reputation around Southern California. Two years ago I almost transferred but I'm glad I hung in there and soon will be an alum.

From what I have seen in my fiveNot so brightAnimal Studies
From what I have seen in my five years here, Cal Poly Pomona is a wonderful school. I really enjoy going to class because of the positive learning environment, the campus is gorgeous, and I believe that I'm getting an excellent overall education. Lately there has been alot of turmoil on campus, but I have not been affected. I believe it depends on your major and what college you're in. I know that the College of Business has been having alot of problems, but I believe it stops there. As of right now for those who are thinking about this university, your best bet would be architecture, engineering, science, hospitality management and agricultural related majors. It seems that Cal Poly Pomona is excelling in these subjects. Any other, go to a different school because you'd be wasting your time. As for some positive points that can be included about CPP:

1st, I believe we have some of the best professors with the majority of them having Dr. in front of their names

2nd, classes are very small, especially in core classes
3rd, tuition is excellent compared to other schools, especially for the quality of education.
4th, the staff and students are very friendly and are always willing to help
Lastly, many of the buildings are being renovated, which include the science building and library. With time the campus will look even better then it does now.I believe, don't knock it until you try it. It's corny, but come see the school for yourself. A major decision in life should not be based on hearsay and rantings of angry students. Every school has their hits and misses.
