CLA Building

California Polytechnic University, Pomona has a long and rich history that began even before it was officially a campus. The land was originally home to the Kellogg family and still has many of the aspects that made Mr. Kellogg love this land. The rose garden, located near the engineering field, was originally planted for Mrs. Kellogg and was even the place of the first graduation ceremony. Even the Kellogg House still stands and has been kept in the same fashion as when it was first built. In 1949 W.K. Kellogg deeded the land to the State of California. It then became the new home for the Voorhis School, an all male college. In 1961 the first female students enrolled at the school. The campus has since continued to grow and has become notable for many of it's colleges including; Agriculture, Engineering, and the Collins school of Hospitality Management.
