If you have to ask, ask any California high school student. Cal Poly SLO is widely regarded as the most selective of the California State University campuses, with particular strengths in Engineering and Agriculture, with an extremely competitive College of Business. Budget constraints mean that many of the classes are large, and the faculty have heavy teaching loads, but most faculty still find time to interact with the students. And even if the students aren't particularly academically inclined, they can enjoy the surf, and pleasant lifestyle of San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, and Avila Beach, unless they flunk out.
