Move-in week at Cal Poly is a family experience!
Begin your week with getting your student settled in their room, meeting their neighbors and roommates, and connecting with university staff. Before your student meets their WOW group, feel free to explore the campus or run some last-minute errands. Below is a list of events that Parent and Family Programs will be hosting for you, our incoming Cal Poly Proud parents!
Gathering on the Green
Friday, September 16, 2016 . 4:00PM . Baker Science Lawn
Parent and Family Programs invites all national and international students, parents, and supporters to come celebrate after move-in. This reception is a chance for those outside of California to meet and mingle with each other, make connections, and share tips on how to best support our new Mustangs.
Evening with the President
Sunday, September 18, 2016 . 5:30PM . O'Neill Green
On Sunday, September 18, all parents, supporters, and family members are welcome to join President Jeffrey D. Armstrong for Evening with the President. Connect with university leaders and other Cal Poly parents and families on O'Neill Green to celebrate the beginning of your student's Cal Poly journey.
Directly following the reception, join everyone for the Big Fall Welcome event in Spanos Stadium. With your student already in his/her Week of Welcome group, you'll have the rare opportunity to witness the spirited start of WOW from the stadium bleachers in the company of other incoming Cal Poly Proud parents and supporters.
