"Great school program! The learn by doing philosophy has set me above many of my peers who attended other universities thanks to the hands on experiences I gained while at University. I am a proud alumni of Cal Poly and would encourage other students to enroll as well. Take full advantage of the many benefits available to you as students including clubs, student research projects, and so much more that give you the advantage when searching for careers. Cal Poly is an amazing university that supports its students and provides an ideal environment for learning."

"Cal Poly well-prepared me for my Doctor of Pharmacy program. My involved professors were a fundamental part of my success as a student. On my very first day of college, I found myself immersed in labs as a biology major. Cal Poly's "learn by doing" philosophy gave me invaluable real-world experience that I will take with me in my Doctor of Pharmacy program."

"The chemistry department is wonderful. They are always willing to help and there are great opportunities to help get a head start on a career. The rest of the school is well off too, with most teachers being interested in their topic of choice."

Graduation Year: 2015
"It was a good experience. The chem department is great, but the rest of the school is lacking. The food is horrible and the staff are worse. That being said, the oppurtunitiesavailable in the chem department outweighs these aspects."
