More than 1,400 prospective students and their families visited Cal Poly Pomona during Preview Day last month.

The annual event is tailored to give hopeful students a chance to become familiar with the university and the abundant opportunities available to them through the various programs and services. They learned about Cal Poly Pomona's academic programs, student life and many of the unique programs offered here.

“I've been working here nine years and this by far has been one of the best Preview Days I have been a part of,” says Yanett Garcia, admissions counselor.  

Prospective students and their families had an opportunity to attend workshops on admissions and test requirements, campus housing, financial aid and scholarships, the Undeclared Program and much more. More than 1,000 guests participated in a campus tour.    

Representatives from all seven colleges and the Collins School of Hospitality Management were on hand to answer questions and provide more detailed information about each major.  There was also a great deal of support from current students, student support service programs and alumni.   

Preview Day was held on Oct. 27.
