What's life like at CSU San Luis Obispo

<p>I started my college list and narrowed it down to 9 so I'm thinking of applying to this one not only is it in southern cali but its by the beach(I think or some water)...I live in the bay area so I probably can't visit soon.Are there a lot of people from norcal going there is no what's like compared to home.And is the student body equally diverse racially because my high school is almost but I like and kinda use to it..I don't think id feel comfortable if there was predominantly 1 race even if its my own.Thanks
And I'm a girl if that affects my experience b/c my bro is always trying to scare me with these stories of rape from certain colleges I was thinking of going to but I'm sure it could happen at any college.

<p>From what I've read, if what you want is racial diversity, Cal Poly might not be the place. What do you want to major in?</p>

<p>Well I just looked at the colleges I want to go to on californiacolleges.edu and most of them have like 8-2% of my race but I shouldn't be surprised b/c my race is a minority in california.</p>

<p>And actually I take back about my school being diverse because the area\city is and the school has about (black, asian, hispanic)3 races equally,and whites are the minority.</p>

<p>I don't know what I want to major in but something science related.now I'm thinking biochemistry,engineering,oceanography,hydrology, materials science,environmental science, or biology

<p>It's not Southern california, it's in the Central Coast.</p>

<p>Santa Barbara County and SLO County are considered Central Coast.</p>

<p>The college is 67% Caucasian, 12% Hispanic, and 10% Asian-American, and the rest is other races like Indian-American, African American, and other ethnicities.</p>

<p>Life? SLO is a small-sized city. There is plenty of hiking trails, bars downtown (if you're into it), arts scene downtown, a movie theater downtown, and a bowling alley at the college. The weather is great and is usually around the 70s year round. </p>

<p>The nearest beach to Poly is in Morro Bay. About a 10 minute car drive. </p>

<p>Since you're an out of area college student, I expect you will do most of your shopping back in your hometown. But for groceries, I know college students go to Costco and Trader Joe's and Albertson's and Food 4 Less.</p>

<p>O well central california is still a change but I decided to take this college off my list because it was the smallest and I really want to go to San Diego but thanks for your help.</p>
