*California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly San Luis Obispo or Cal Poly SLO)
*California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona)
Graduate2: Which one?
Graduate2: Cool, I went to SLO for engineering!
Great Parties, and is located in San Luis Obispo which is 10 minutes from Pismo and Avila beach where the babes run wild.
Cal Poly's moto is learn by doing which is one of the greatest since half your classes will not be 500 people lectures, and yes, you do get involved with acutal things relating to your major! OMG! There is a strong emphasis on being envolved in groups and other clubs.
Cal Poly recently hosted the Polybot competition where freshmen and sophmores were shown how to build and program a simple racing robot that would follow a line around a black track.(Where else can a freshman do something that fun and cool)
Dollar for dollar one of the best deals for an education, over 90% of graduates have jobs or grad school within in year and it costs less than half that of a Berkeley undergrad degree.
Cal Poly Student : Hmmm, I wonder what the Urban Dictionary page for cal poly says....why are there so many berkeley students ranting on here, man they must be compensating for something because I dont give a shit what the UC berkeley urban dictionary page says.
UC Berkeley student again : BUT BERKELEY IS RANKED 21 ON WORLD NEWS REPORT AND CAL POLY ISNT EVEN RANKED...
Cal Poly Student : you're stupidity is a testament to how poor of a filter uc berkeley's admissions are....cal poly is a FOUR YEAR UNIVERSITY AND IS THEREFORE NOT CATAGORIZED UNDER NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES PAGE. What a poor level of observation on your part as to how the U.S. News ranks colleges....and yet you're so willing to talk
The BEST architecture school in the state.
Yeah, but I don't care! Cal Poly is soooooooooo much better! :D
I wish I would have chosen Cal Poly over UC Berkeley, that way I could have had a more rational education involving hands on training. Oh well, I guess im just going to have to deal with learning through my TA rather than my professor.
