Circle of Life

How money spent on campus, stays on campus.
  1. Sam is a Dairy Science major. He is one of 5,000 Cal Poly freshmen.
  2. Sam is on the dining plan and uses his declining balance to eat at Mustang Station. He is one of Campus Dining’s 20,000 daily guests.
  3. Sam’s slice of pizza and drink purchase helps fund jobs for 2,000 Campus Dining student employees. It also helps support on-campus facilities like Doerr Field, which Cal Poly Corporation donated $750,000 to build.
  4. Additionally, his purchase funds Learn by Doing initiatives on campus like the student-run Cal Poly Creamery. Cal Poly Corporation contributes $1M back to the university annually.
