just finished my fall quarter of my third year at
poly and I must say that I love it. SLO
is an amazing area, there's so much to do and
see in the surrounding town, plus great places are not
too much of a drive away. This last quarter alone
I played polo in LA, went to Lake Tahoe and
ran a half marathon in Las Vegas. You're in an
amazing region of the country - be sure to take
advantage of all that it has to offer.
loved my experience as an animal science major. Poly is
all about hands-on and I've had some amazing opportunities to
do things I would've never thought possible: castrating piglets, pregnancy
checking dairy cows, collecting stallions, vaccinations, and dissections. Poly really
prepares you for vet school if that is something you're
interested in, it has a great reputation.
Social life is
what you make of it. I don't really drink so
it wasn't my scene, but you can pretty much find
a party off-campus thurs-sun every week.
The campus is
beautiful and easily walkable. Also, pretty hilly, so a great
work it. The rec center is currently getting redone and
will be finished in 2013 - supposed to be incredible,
so you incoming freshman are lucking out.
I highly recommend
poly to anyone!
