An upcoming lecture by influential labor organizer Dolores Huerta, a new honor for the College of Business Administration, the opening of an on-campus gastro pub and the roll-out of expanded Wi-Fi access on campus are discussed by President Michael Ortiz in his weekly video message.
Dolores Huerta, known for her work alongside Cesar Chavez as well as her feminist activities, will visit Cal Poly Pomona on Thursday as part of the Kellogg Distinguished Public Lecture Series. Her lecture begins at 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.cpp.edu/kellogglectures.
Ortiz also noted that the College of Business Administration made it onto this year’s edition of Best Business Schools by Princeton Review. The organization cited the college’s learn-by-doing approach and its efforts to stay up to date in a constantly evolving business environment.
The addition of improved Wi-Fi access in the BSC, the Marketplace, the Quad and University Park was made possible by the Student Success Fee, Ortiz said. Possible expansions could later take place in the Bronco Commons and the Engineering Meadow.
Cal Poly Pomona’s Innovation Brew Works, which is both a café and a learning lab for students, officially began serving craft beers today, Ortiz said. In the near future, it will also sell beer brewed by students in the facility.
Other topics Ortiz discussed were:
- The success of the Annual Fund’s recent 36-hour campaign, which raised over $74,000 from nearly 200 people.
- The impending men’s and women’s basketball seasons: The men’s team, which is ranked No. 3 in a preseason poll, will square off against Stanford on Nov. 6 and the University of Arizona on Nov. 9.
- The men’s soccer team defeated both San Francisco State and CSU Monterey Bay over the weekend. The women’s soccer team also played San Francisco State and CSU Monterey Bay, emerging with a win in each game.
- The Cyber Security and Awareness Fair comes to campus on Thursday. Those with an interest in social media, online privacy, technology and job opportunities are encouraged to attend.
