Went to Cal Poly for another visit today
My son and our whole family went to SLO today to walk around and see how it felt to be an accepted student at Cal Poly. His little sister hadn't seen the campus and she really wanted to see the famous wall of gum downtown. (Yuck by the way!)
The weather was beautiful and warm, but a little windy. There were not a lot of students out and about on campus on a Sunday, but Downtown was pretty lively. There are a lot of cute restaurants and bars there. There are also a lot of students and families.
We walked around the Cerro Vista apartment dorms because that is where my son is going to apply to live. We love the idea of him having his own room and 3 roommates that share a kitchen and living room. He liked the community room too and of course the view. We wish we were brave enough to ask someone to let us see inside a room, but truthfully, we only saw a handful of people outside of the dorms.
The campus is just the right size and easy to get around. Everything looks clean and nice. We saw students playing frisbee, studying in the library and walking around campus in groups of 3-5 students.
I think my son will be accepting admission and applying so he can sign up for housing. he will very likely attend slo, but will also think about the other schools that he gets accepted to.
The next time we visit will most likely be for Open House on April 16th.
