As Cal Poly Pomona being a commuter school, student organizations have a hard time reaching out to most students since many commute back home right after class. With GoCampus, it makes it easier for students to make the most of their college experience.
For students who wants to make to most out of the college experience. The GoCampus app will allow students to see all the free upcoming events being offered on-campus. Unlike posters and word of-mouth, it allows all students to easily be informed and remind them about the great opportunities being offered.
