Cal Poly SLO is only for certain people.. I came in very enthusiastic, but ended up dropping out.

Pros—if your an engineer, accountant, or farmer.. not care much about well-rounded learning, but want to basically go to a tradeschool for your major and get a good paying job. Cal Poly allows you to do that.

If your not a city person, and you want to be in a small town, SLO is pretty nice. beach, mountains, nice downtown, see stars, etc.. it's cheap cons—WHITENESS. least diverse UC or CSU campus. conformity is rampant at cal poly no creativity here if your a city person, you'll hate it very hard to change major hard to get classes / teachers you want they set you on a track, hard to have a flexible schedule. you basically only take GEs and classes in your major partys here suck! girls here are bitches guys here are douchebags seriously, i had an awesome time in HS, and i come here and can't believe how immature people are here. lots of farming hics here not much creativity, expression, normal college values here frat scene is big enough to ruin all other parties, yet small enough that it really sucks. ive been to a couple and they really suck. very small frat houses and no frat row. frat parties do have 3 girls to every guy tho cus they let all girls in, but only frat members. all other parties off campus are 5 guys per girl and its just beer pong. basically people just get drunk and walk around. food here SUCKS. barely edible and extremely unhealthy. i can go on and on.. this place is ok for a few people. but its just a career maker and its a shithole. dont go here

My son has the same experience. I'm why didn't you transfer?
