Cara Benson is a first year Journalism student at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. After growing up in Sacramento, Cara decided to change her scenery by attending Cal Poly. With perfect weather, hiking trails, unique restaurants, and only 10 minutes from the beach, San Luis Obispo seemed like a perfect fit. As a college student, she too is continually looking for fun and affordable things to do in the nearby area. She looks forward to learning more about San Luis Obispo through reporting on her blog as well as helping those reading with insight from a college student’s prospective.
