Open House 2017

You're invited to Cal Poly's Open House April 6 - 8, 2017. This annual event showcases the Cal Poly campus to new students, their families, and the community while offering a glimpse to life as a Mustang.

Open House weekend begins with Club Preview Night at the world-famous Downtown San Luis Obispo Farmers’ Market on Thursday, April 6th from 6-9pm. Explore downtown San Luis Obispo and gain a glimpse into life at Cal Poly and on the Central Coast.

The weekend continues on April 7th for Admitted Students' Preview Day.  We kick off the day with our University Welcome where we hear from campus leaders, first-year students, and faculty about their Mustang Legacies. Continue throughout the day experiencing Cal Poly’s “Learn by Doing” philosophy through sessions from your academic college and interactive classrooms and experiences. In the evening, we invite you to engage with other prospective students as well as current Cal Poly students at Friday Nite Invite. Additionally, parents and supporters are invited to join New Student & Transition Programs for Coffee House in learning about what’s next for new students on their Cal Poly journey.


Join us in Celebrating the Mustang Legacy as Open House concludes Saturday, April 8th with the Poly Royal Parade, Campus Showcase, Poly Royal Main Stage and other premier special events including Poly Royal Rodeo, Poly Royal Truck & Tractor Pull and more as the campus community comes together to celebrate.
