    Teachers: This is my first year at Cal Poly and I haven't started school yet. But from my past experiences with Cal Poly teachers, they are very knowledgeable and very helpful. But sometimes when a student is struggling, some teachers don't seem to care to help the student. Or some teachers don't care to open their schedules a little more to help students.
