Open House Events

Open House | April 2018

Cal Poly’s 25th annual Open House welcomes parents and supporters back to campus for a weekend of festivities.

Parent/Supporter Events

Out-of-State Parent Reception

Cal Poly's Parent & Family Programs welcomes the parents and supporters of newly admitted students from around the nation and world. Get specific information on how to supporter your student from long distance. We encourage those that attend this reception to check out the Coffee House as well! 

Parent and Supporter Coffee House

Cal Poly's Parent and Family Programs is eager to meet the proud parents and supporters of each newly admitted student at this Coffee House event. Meet members of the Parent Advisory Council and members of the Cal Poly Proud Volunteer Corps to discuss parent-to-parent tips and perspectives on ways to support student success. Additionally, we are teaming up with New Student and Transition Programs to help host this event. Students apart of the Orientation Team will be mingling with parents to give a students perspective of Cal Poly.

Not sure if you should bring your student? Students will have an event, Friday Nite Invite, that they are welcome to attend the same time that the Out of State and Coffee House receptions are going on.

Morning Cup with the President

Enjoy your morning cup of coffee and breakfast treats with Cal Poly President Armstrong at this fun 'first event of the day.' A great opportunity for you to mingle, ask questions and snap a photo with President near the start of the Poly Royal Parade!. Arriving early for this festive and casual event with all also ensure the best seats and vantage point for the parade, situated adjacent to the MC for music and entertainment!
