Parent and Supporter Events
Throughout the year, Parent and Family Programs organizes and hosts several events that connect families and supporters to Cal Poly. Be sure to mark your calendars and visit us at the following events. We look forward to seeing you!
Mustang Family Weekend | October 20 - 22, 2017
A fun-filled weekend full of Learn by Doing activities, college receptions, department receptions, tours, and much more!
Open House | April 2018
Visit the Parent and Family Programs booth, Coffee House Resource Fair, and Morning Cup with the President to hear insight about Cal Poly firsthand from our Parent Advisory Council.
Gathering on the Green | September 2018
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 all families — especially out-of-state and international families — to meet and mingle, make connections, and share tips on how to best support their students.
Evening with the President | September 2018
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. 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.
