        Top university that allow students to learn by doing. They enforce best practices and encourage their students to work on projects and compete in hackathons that best interest them. Top companies like Google and Apple always hire students from.

        SLO life and CalPoly combine to create a great place for education. I loved my program, engaged professors, exciting campus programs and location. CalPoly- SLO is an unsung state university.

        When you graduate, you wonder a little bit: we are close now, will we be close 10, 20 years from now? For me, 41 years later, it's a resounding Yes. I can safely say I have stayed in touch with at least 40 of my classmates with several of them remaining very close friends. The trajectory of my life changed forever during my Poly years and a big part of that was due to the life-long friendships I made. Thank you, Cal Poly!
