    CPP REVIEW

    They had the program I wanted with lower tuition than other schools. This college also happened to be relatively close to my parents so the convenience of that was a definite factor for my choice.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum is really good I feel engaged in class and as though I'm learning things which will help me in my future career. There are many projects that mimic what I will hopefully be doing in the fashion industry so I get a good feel for my future.

    THE BEST COLLEGE IN THE IE

    Cal Poly Pomona is a 'hands-on' school, they're very well known for their 'learn by doing', the philosophy which is very beneficial in various factors, and for engineering majors, it is really helpful, especially because they prepare you for the work field.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The fact that the courses are lectured and not always Web-Enhanced is really helpful, especially because I am a visual learner, I can't learn things online. Lectured classes make things more discussion based and facilitate your ability to understanding the material better.

    CSPU POMONA: ERICA'S EXPERIENCE AT THE UNIVERSITY

    Because it has a great accounting program and offers lots of opportunities for jobs and internships. It allows me to have hands-on experience and get lots of opportunities to get out and go into the field of accounting.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It's very good, I understand most of what is going on. Accounting is normally hard because it is like another language, however, the professor teaches well so that I can learn. It is very hard being that accounting is not supposed to be easy.

    PARKING SUCKED! BUT THERE WAS SO MANY OPTIONS FOR FOOD, THEY WERE ALL REASONABLY PRICED.

    The location was ideal for me. As a cal state university, the price was affordable. The professors of the CLASS were knowledgeable and great to work with. There was no need to write an application essay or to take the act


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum was understandable. They give you a paper that lets you know which classes you can/ need to take to fulfill the requirements. For each supporting section, (such as social and clinical) there is a good variety of classes you can take.
