Director's Message

This time of year, we all do a great deal of forward thinking. In the wake of New Year’s resolutions, our minds are geared to think of the year ahead and all that we want to accomplish. Our students are goal-setting, attending career fairs, securing housing for next year, registering for spring quarter, exploring summer internships and study abroad opportunities, and many are looking forward to spring commencement!

Remember that this is a great quarter to send some love to your student through snail-mail. Care packages, cards, photos of pets, or even a little Valentine’s gift will brighten your student’s quarter. It’s also a great quarter to visit your student - learn about our upcoming SLO Discovery Weekend, happening March 7-10.

What plans does your student have for spring break? Will they stay in San Luis Obispo to work at a job? Will they come home for a visit? Maybe they would enjoy joining Cal Poly’s Alternative Breaks program to spend their break doing community service in an amazing location. Talk to your student so that you can plan your schedule too.

Remember that the staff and volunteers at Parent and Family Programs are available to support you. Please stay in touch by reaching out to us anytime!

Sincerely,
Tessa Stevens Espinoza, M.A. Ed.
Senior Director of Strategy and Engagement

Secure Continuing Student Housing this Month

It seems like it was just yesterday you were moving your Mustang in. Believe it or not, now is the time to start thinking about next year’s housing.

University Housing provides two different options for continuing student housing. The first of these are the on-campus Cerro Vista and Poly Canyon Village apartments. These apartments come with full kitchens, Wi-Fi and regular cleaning service, providing your students with a convenient option designed to help them succeed. The second option is the Cal Poly Lofts.

The Cal Poly Lofts offers fully-renovated and furnished studio and one and two-bedroom apartments with entertainment, restaurants and the SLO HotHouse just across the street.

For the Cerro Vista and Poly Canyon Village apartments, current apartment residents can start to secure housing beginning Friday, Feb. 1. All other students, including current first-year students, can apply for this option starting Tuesday, Feb 5.

The first step of the Cal Poly Lofts application closes Friday, Feb. 8.

Planning a Summer Break with Purpose

Alternative Breaks offers a chance to raise students' self-awareness, supplement their educational experience with the university, and demonstrate Cal Poly's enthusiasm to make a positive impact outside of the campus community.

Volunteer excursions give Cal Poly students a chance to make a lasting contribution and work together to develop skills as global citizens.

Spread the Word Not Germs

With cold and flu season upon us, it is important to share critical health information with your student so they can keep themselves healthy and access the resources they need when they do get sick.

Here are some tips from Campus Health and Wellbeing on keeping your student well:

  • Remind your student to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer throughout the day after using the restroom, before eating, and when using computers and mobile devices. Washing hands is a top preventer for the flu.
  • Remind them of the common flu symptoms such as a fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue (tiredness), and please note that not everyone with the flu will have a fever.
  • Also, reassure your student that they only need to see a doctor if they are experiencing serve symptoms, such as difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, pain or pressure in chest or abdomen, sudden dizziness, confusion, severe or persistent vomiting, and if flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough.
  • And lastly, please encourage your student to stay home and rest for at least 24 hours after their fever has gone. Drinking lots of water, washing their hands, wiping down and cleaning their rooms, and resting, are all ways to prevent your student from getting the flu.

Please also share these on-campus resources and information with your student:

  • Nursing Hours
    • Nursing services such as wart treatment, wound care, shots, and TB tests are offered on a walk-in basis only.  Walk-in hours for Nursing Services are:
      • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 8:00 - 11:00 AM, 2:30 - 4:00 PM
      • Wednesday: 9:00 - 11:00 AM, 2:30 - 4:00 PM
  • After-Hours Nurse Advice
    • Call (805) 756-1211 to reach an after-hours nurse advice line. Your student may discuss any health related concerns privately and confidentially.
  • Health Center Portal
    • Your student’s connection for scheduling appointments, filling out health forms and receiving messages from their on-campus health care provider.
  • Flu Vaccine
    • The 2018-19 flu vaccine will be available at the beginning of September at no charge to your student! Encourage them to visit the Health Center during our regular nursing hours (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 8:00 - 11:00 AM, 2:30 - 4:00 PM; Wednesday: 9:00 - 11:00 AM, 2:30 - 4:00 PM).

There’s No Base like BAEC

For some Cal Poly students, the Black Academic Excellence Center offers more than just academic support

By Diego Abeloos, Educational Communications Specialist, Student Affairs

Steve Ross doesn’t mince words when it comes to describing the environment in the Black Academic Excellence Center (BAEC – pronounced “base”). He’s quick to point out that while everyone is welcome at the center, they should be prepared to hear about the African-American student experience.

“BAEC celebrates Black culture, thoughts, history, and ideas at Cal Poly,” said Ross, who serves as the center’s program coordinator. “The goal is not to create a space separate or isolated from the larger campus community, but to engage the campus community in dialogue through the lens of Black culture and identity.”

Valentina Stafford, a fourth-year student with a double major in Kinesiology and Ethnic Studies, noted that BAEC helped change her perspective about Cal Poly and gave her an on-campus community to call her own.

Stafford was on the verge of leaving Cal Poly because she had trouble finding her group of friends during her freshman year. A friend from her hometown in Illinois then introduced her to BAEC. Still, she admitted feeling hesitant at first about entering the center.

“The thing you have to remember is that it’s the Black Academic Excellence Center. Anyone who enters that space, they need to know that it’s a very special space because it’s a small community,” said Stafford, who identifies as Latina. “I didn’t want to overstep my boundaries. But the reason I feel comfortable here is because everywhere I’ve lived, it’s always been very diverse.”

A home away from home

While BAEC originally began as a source of academic support for African-American students, it has since morphed into much more.

Academically, the center offers a wide range of support services to help students navigate college, including workshops on resume and cover letter writing, handling stress, time management and more. In addition, the center provides personal and academic advising and a computer lab, and it hosts monthly “couch conversations” to build stronger relationships between students and faculty members, among other efforts.

More than that, however, the center is a social hub for African-American students and their peers. On any given day, Ross noted, the center will bustle with the sights and sounds of students talking, eating lunch together or simply joking around. The center also regularly hosts social events like bowling, movie nights and Kwanzaa celebrations, among others.

“After a long day of classes or studying, the first place I go to destress is BAEC,” said Gabby Cole, a fourth-year biomedical engineering student. “The best part is that you never know what you're walking into. Sometimes, it's the perfect study environment. The next time, there's a debate going on about last night's game, the season finale of Insecure, or even as personal as exchanging stories about our diverse backgrounds and heritages.”

Stafford said she’s seen that community pull together in times of need too, whether it’s a family tragedy or everyday issues like advising younger students on class schedules and professors.

“I always feel like there’s support there – you can’t get that anywhere else,” she said.

Connections to culture and identity

Social hub aside, the center also strives to infuse black culture into the learning and social aspects of the center. For instance, the center has a library of more than 250 books on the civil rights movement, African culture, and fiction and non-fiction novels by African-American authors.

Fourth-year history major Jerod Adams said the center and its community of peers have helped him gain a greater understanding of his culture and his identity. Adams, a Los Angeles native, was first introduced to BAEC by his friend and resident assistant.

“I told him that I was having problems when it came to being black at Cal Poly and dealing with my identity on campus,” Adams said. “BAEC has helped me find friends who have become my family and who can go to with my struggles. Being a part of BAEC has helped me stay at Poly and understand how I can express my culture.”

Ross also seeks to add culture in his role as an organizer for Cal Poly’s annual Black Commencement. Each year, the ceremony features the singing of the black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” along with speeches by former Cal Poly graduates, a keynote address, and its traditional rite of passage ritual. Each graduate also receives a Ghanian kente cloth, purchased by retired College of Science and Mathematics Dean Philip Bailey.

“Our students are not just celebrating this achievement with their families and friends from home but also the students they’ve bonded with here in their time at Cal Poly,” he said. “Many of the students share how they were able to be successful because of the community they were able to build during their time at Cal Poly.”

Stafford, meanwhile, offered some simple advice for those hesitant to try out the center: Just do it.

“You can have a great time and meet amazing people – people who have shaped my time at Cal Poly,” she said. “So, go in there because you never know how it could change your life.”

Redefining Boldness: It's Time to Take Action and Change the Status Quo!

The Center for Service in Action is excited to announce the 17th Annual Change the Status Quo Conference on February 22 and 23rd, 2019 with the theme Redefining Boldness. This conference aims to empower students to use the Learn by Doing spirit to challenge social norms, ask critical questions, demand solutions and make lasting social change. Through guest speakers, inspiring workshops, and engaging sessions, students will gain the knowledge needed to learn how they can be bold and take ownership of their role in moving the needle with regard to social change. Now is the time to shift our culture, now is the time to look deep within our biases, now is the time to disrupt our patterns, to change systems… now is the time to redefine boldness and change the status quo.

New this year, Change the Status Quo is excited to offer our first Whiteness Symposium.  This is a series of workshops designed specifically for white people to build self- awareness, knowledge of power, privilege, and difference, and skills for anti-racist practice and community building. Participants will be able to examine their own identities and biases while also working with other white people to take on work for racial justice.  Activities will include personal reflection, small and large group dialogue, and experiential activities exploring topics such as the meaning of whiteness, power and privilege, resolving guilt and shame, examining structural and institutional racism, and the lifelong practice of developing anti-racist practice and identity.  

Attendees are welcome from on Cal Poly campus and off; this conference is designed to bring people together to discuss and demand change. Students, staff, faculty, community members and other institutions are encouraged to attend!

This conference promises to be an exciting opportunity to discuss social justice issues with keynote speakers, workshops, breakfast and lunch, and the opportunity to see a student-led conference devoted to issues in social justice. 

Encourage your student to register today!

Please contact serviceinaction@calpoly.edu with any questions or inquiries.

Ever wish there was a how-to guide on parenting college students? While there might not be a manual on raising young adults, there are several helpful resources, articles and books to help you support your student. Each quarter, our office will recommend a recent and relevant book or article for parents and supporters of students of all identities and backgrounds.

Winter Quarter Reading Recommendation: “The Gift Of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed” by Jessica Lahey

In the tradition of Paul Tough’s How Children Succeed and Wendy Mogel’s The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, this groundbreaking manifesto focuses on the critical school years when parents must learn to allow their children to experience the disappointment and frustration that occur from life’s inevitable problems so that they can grow up to be successful, resilient, and self-reliant adults.

Modern parenting is defined by an unprecedented level of overprotectiveness: parents who rush to school at the whim of a phone call to deliver forgotten assignments, who challenge teachers on report card disappointments, mastermind children’s friendships, and interfere on the playing field. As teacher and writer Jessica Lahey explains, even though these parents see themselves as being highly responsive to their children’s well being, they aren’t giving them the chance to experience failure—or the opportunity to learn to solve their own problems.

Overparenting has the potential to ruin a child’s confidence and undermine their education, Lahey reminds us. Teachers don’t just teach reading, writing, and arithmetic. They teach responsibility, organization, manners, restraint, and foresight—important life skills children carry with them long after they leave the classroom.

Providing a path toward solutions, Lahey lays out a blueprint with targeted advice for handling homework, report cards, social dynamics, and sports. Most importantly, she sets forth a plan to help parents learn to step back and embrace their children’s failures. Hard-hitting yet warm and wise, The Gift of Failure is essential reading for parents, educators, and psychologists nationwide who want to help children succeed.
