According to the school, California State Polytechnic University—Pomona is one of nine polytechnic universities nationwide, Cal Poly Pomona integrates a learn-by-doing approach into its project and presentation-based coursework. This long-standing polytechnic approach makes it unique among traditional universities and has earned Cal Poly Pomona the reputation of developing individuals who are among the most sought after in today’s marketplace.\r\n\r\nCal Poly Pomona is located on the eastern edge of Southern California’s San Gabriel Valley. The site of the university is the former winter ranch of William K. Kellogg, the cereal magnate. The university’s 1,400-acre campus features lush rolling hills; flowers, plants and trees from all seven continents; a rose garden personally built by Kellogg; and a beautifully landscaped Japanese Garden. The university’s aesthetic qualities are one of its best kept secrets. Some of the world’s finest architects and landscape architects designed and built the ranch – a hybrid of architecture, which combined the formal courtyards, gardens and elements of Spanish, Italian and Islamic architecture with the informality of a growing nouveau-riche society. \r\n\r\nIn 1925, Kellogg fulfilled a dream when he moved to Pomona, California to start an Arabian horse breeding program, the oldest in the United States and the fifth largest in the country today. More than 70% of the domestic Arabian bloodstock in the U.S. can trace its lineage to the original breeding program. With the assistance of Richard Nixon and then U.S. President Harry S. Truman, Kellogg’s desire to have the ranch become an institution of higher education became a reality. A stipulation in maintaining the property is that the University continues Kellogg’s tradition of a Sunday Arabian horse show. On the first Sunday of the month from October through May, students host public performances.
