Sponsor Our Programs

 

About Sponsorship

 

New Student and Transition Programs organizes and executes three flagship programs: Open House, SLO Days, and the Week of Welcome. These events are centered around orientating and transitioning new students into Cal Poly through academic advising, awareness presentations on issues students may face during their time here, and fun events that help students feel welcome and included into the Cal Poly community. The three programs cater to around 5,500 new students and over 3,000 supporters and community members each year.

 

Sponsoring our programs provides your business with an opportunity to support both Cal Poly and new students as well as gain recognition both on campus and out in the San Luis Obispo community. Our program offers several different sponsorship options to fit every interest level and budget. Take a look at our different package options below and feel free to reach out to orientationmarketing@calpoly.edu with any questions.
