  • 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..." 😊
  • I challenge you to find a single student with a complaint about their school. The overall experience I've observed turns these kids into leaders and go getters. The positive stigma of achieving a degree at Cal Poly SLO is comparable to any of our nations best universities.
  • Awesome university! Proud to be a Mustang.
  • 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.
