what aspect of the dorms do you not like? I might be required to stay in them so I want to know what to expect! Thanks
I agree the dorms aren't that great looking, but they're not that bad. I lived there my first year. With a little decoration you'll be fine and feel right at home. I will say the Cedritos and Palmitas are the two worse looking ones those on top of the rooms being oddly shaped. The worse part is just having to share a bathroom with all the girls one the floor. As for the suites, they are 10x better. They are newer and a basically apartments. Yeah they are a bit more expensive, but totally worth it. If you want to pay a little less then try getting a double. You have to share a room with someone, but the double rooms are huge. Me and my roommate have so much wasted space because we don't know what to do with it. We could fit like two loveseats in there and still have a lot of room to move around comfortably.

CPP is a very kicked-back campus as far as students' ways of life go. We are in Southern California, and a lot of the students live up to the reputation of being mellow and relaxed (sometimes a little too much when it comes to going to class), but they still manage to crack down on the books when they need to. You'd be surprised to hear how many fraternity guys who live in the fraternity houses are able to carry 20 units a quarter and pull off straight As.
Many students come to Cal Poly not expecting to have a very good experience because it doesn't have a reputation like UCLA or USC. They admit to feeling this way, but then their experience turns out to be everything they had hoped for in a college experience. You, too, may have that same mindset, but it will probably change after a quarter or two at CPP. Overall, students end up being quite happy with CPP. Take advantage of what the school has to offer: diversity, hands-on learning, social interaction, and classes small enough to get quality attention from your instructors. And, most of all, get involved in something that sparks your interest, whether it is intramural sports, Greek life, or any other club on campus. For all that you get at CPP, the price is affordable, but the experience priceless.
