Let's see. My son got accepted to Pomona, UC Riverside, and other out of state universities including SLO. I can pay the same amount that Pomona is now charging and have him attend UCR commuting each day which would only be about a 20 minute difference in travel time. If anything, Pomona will now have the opportunity to send out more acceptance notices because people are really going to consider the cost.

This is obviously an outrageous and quite thoughtless decision. I mean, seriously, the purpose of this is to increase students involvement? This isn't high school. We're talking about adults and adult decisions. If students want to be involved, they will be involved. I am currently an engineering major senior and am glad to be graduating this year. I learned that those who are motivated to improve campus life and participate in activities will be more than capable of doing so whether they commute or live on campus. I am a president of one of the campus clubs and I am a commuter and have been for the past 4 years. This is my choice and there is a reason that I make that choice. This isn't about campus involvement or any of that mumbo jumbo. Say control much? The administration has no say about living arrangements that families make - that is personal.

My friend lives in my neighborhood and I just gave him a tour of the campus. He was excited about attending next year, but just found out he has to live on campus and it changes everything. He has other commitments near the city where we live and will therefore be commuting from school to about his life elsewhere. Makes no sense to me! Spend more money and build more buildings, why don't you? And then force students to pay for them. How terrible.

It's a great school and I am proud to be a student, but poorly executed decisions like this make me upset. Stinking spend more money on useful things like supplying the students with proper equipment and more professors rather than build more useless structures and impose tons of fees.

Cal Poly Pomona sucks. I would have to pay an extra $10,000 to dorm at a place that is 20 minutes from my house just because I don't live within the area & I don't attend one of their exempt high schools. Their plan to "enrich our college experience" is a load of crap. Its all about the money.

I am a senior in high school and I am not sure now if I should go to Cal Poly or not? Any suggestions?:(
