Move-In Week Events

Move In: September 8-10, 2017

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 all incoming parents and supporters! 

Gathering on the Green
September 8, 2017: Dexter Lawn

New parents, supporters, and students are invited to celebrate and relax after move-in. Enjoy food, fun, and remarks from the President while engaging with university leadership and fellow new Mustangs. This reception is a great opportunity for out-of-state and international families to meet and mingle, make connections, and share tips on how to best support their students. REGISTER NOW!

Evening with the President
September 10, 2017: O'Neill Green

Enjoy a reception with fellow parents and supporters to connect with President Armstrong and celebrate the beginning of your student’s Cal Poly journey. Directly following the reception, join the campus community as we welcome new students at the Big Fall Welcome in Spanos Stadium beginning at 8 p.m. With your student already in their Week of Welcome (WOW) group, you'll have the rare opportunity to witness the spirited start of WOW from the stadium bleachers in the company of fellow new Mustang families.
