Sponsor Our Programs

 

About Sponsorship

 

New Student and Transition Programs is responsible for the planning and execution of Cal Poly's three flagship programs: Open House, SLO Days, and the Week of Welcome. The program is run by a small professional staff, a student-led executive council, and over 1000 student volunteers. We strive to give back to the community through volunteering, partnering with local businesses, and providing sponsorship opportunities through these programs. 

 

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.
