History 303: Research and Writing Seminar in History
In 2014, Cal Poly President Jeffrey Armstrong submitted a “Letter to the Editor” in The Mustang News in which he described his vision for the future of Cal Poly housing. “As we contemplate our long-term vision for Cal Poly, we are shifting our culture to become a predominantly residential campus. In the foreseeable future, Cal Poly will house more than half — perhaps as many as two-thirds — of its students in university housing.”1 Armstrong continued, claiming that this move of opening up around 1,400 new spaces for freshman living on-campus was “good for students,” and that he hoped these living arrangements would foster more engaged students, better academic and behavior performance, as well as a “positive change for the residents of San Luis Obispo.”2
