Cal Poly is well known for not being a culturally diverse school. In fact, it is one of the least diverse universities within California based on race; a majority of the student population is white. With the current student body as it is, Cal Poly may seem like a barren campus in terms of culture. Yet, the situation is not that bleak.
Despite the majority of Cal Poly students being white, clubs like CSA (Chinese Student Association) and PCE (Pilipino Cultural Exchange) are two of the most prominent clubs on campus based on their size. Cultural organizations like these two play a major part in creating a community for students to express their culture at Cal Poly. One way this takes form is through events like PCW (Poly Cultural Weekend) and CultureFest
