One of the best ways to experience a college campus is through its sports teams, and Cal Poly’s Mustangs don’t disappoint. Throughout the year, the university’s top-level sports teams offer high caliber play in football, basketball, baseball, soccer, water polo, tennis, cross country, swimming, diving, and more. Club sports offer even more ways to cheer on the home team—root for your favorite polo pony, or see who can best navigate the wickets during a croquet match.
The university’s Cal Poly Arts organization also presents a varied mix of performances—including well-known names like jazz trumpeter Branford Marsalis and the quirky Blue Man Group—throughout the year; most take place at the campus’s Performing Arts Center.
For a (literal) taste of the Cal Poly experience, stop by one of the in-season farm stands for the university’s onsite organic farm, a place for hands-on learning of sustainable farming practices.
