    Great school with a large campus. I love the culture here because it's near the beach and the town is so education focused. Lots of great nature opportunities like hikes or the beach.

    We came here upon a tour throughout California. Nickname "Cowpoly", because of the agricultural engineering section. The also have an aero space engineering section. Beside the university it is a great venue. Once we have seen Crosby, Stills and Nash. So right: "teach your children well..." 😊

    Nice town, nice school. Couldn't pick a better area to spend your college years. Great teachers, and the generally small class sizes contribute to an atmosphere of a very caring university.
