Week of Welcome Board

The Week of Welcome Board is the team of students that manage and support WOW Leads and WOW Team; together, they are responsible for putting on the Week of Welcome, Cal Poly's second half of its new student orientation program. They plan a week of events, programming, and activities designed to help new students feel at home at Cal Poly and in the San Luis Obispo community and form lifelong friendships with fellow students. Board plays an integral role in the Cal Poly experience for over 5,000 incoming students and manage a team of over 900 student leaders.
