Cal Poly SLO is a great school… I'm a child development major and the program is awesome… I couldn't of asked for a better program… the worst part of SLO is easily the kids who attend cal poly… the guys here are mostly macho and/or douchebag pretty boys or hicks and the girls are mostly poly dollies (dumb, drunk girls who are looking for a nice dumb pretty boy or hick). The social life here is one small step above high school drama, with most people basing their personal life based on the trials and tribulations observed in the media a la brittney, lindsay, jamie lynn and the rest of them.. if you like watching reality tv shows revolving around romance then you'll enjoy SLO social.. The school is world class and there are amazing proffessors, and there are many cool students, but the overwhelming majority of the students are from the "popular click" in high school. The surrounding geography is amazing here in slo… so much hiking, biking, surfing, camping… it's amazing there aren't more people here than there are. But slo has already changed a great bit in the 4 years i've been here and it's turning more and more socal with every year. There's no diversity here, just white, white people. The weather is very nice, especially if you from northern california, where it rains much more… if you're other schools of choice are uc san diego, san diego state or ucsb, then cal poly will suit you well… if you're more of a santa cruz, sf state, humboldt person then i wouldn't recommend SLO because of the peoplle here. but cal poly, academically is one of the best bang for your buck schools you can find. oh yeah one more thing, everyone here drinks… all the way from college freshmen to the 60 year old residents, everyone drinks here.
