Upon arrival to Cal Poly, incoming freshman may be overwhelmed with their new surroundings. A new place, new classes, and new friends may be a challenging adjustment to many first years on campus. How is it possible to fit in exercise and a social life on top of homework?
Thanks to Cal Poly’s active reputation, getting involved in organized sports teams on campus just may be the key ingredient to a smooth transition.
For many ex-high school athletes, joining intramural sports is the perfect way to create new team bonds while continuing to participate in a beloved sport.
For others, college is the perfect opportunity to branch out of their comfort zone and try something new.
