Parents & Supporters at SLO Days Letters

Welcome Parents and Supporters!

Parents and supporters of new Cal Poly students are encouraged to attend SLO Days 2023. Our supporter tracks are wonderful ways to meet other parents and supporters, learn more about Cal Poly, and receive guidance on the best ways you can support your new Mustang. 


Supporter registration will be available in the beginning on April.

At the time of registration, students will be able to sign up a maximum of two supporters to attend SLO Days for an additional fee. Remember to secure your overnight accommodations for your SLO Days Session.

Week of Welcome

Unlike SLO Days, the Week of Welcome is only for students. However there are a few events parents and supporters can attend after helping their student with move-in. 

Parent and Family Programs will host Evening with the President on September 15 from 5 - 8 pm. Please the Parent and Family Programs website for more details closer to the event. 

Following the Evening with the President, supporters are welcome to attend Big Fall Welcome in Alex G. Spanos Stadium hosted by New Student and Transition Programs. The event kick-offs at 8 pm, so please make your way to the Stadium's North-West entrance on California Blvd around 7:45 pm.

Students will receive important email updates and information in the days and weeks leading up to your session.
