Welcome to Orientation Stories

by Carolyn Sutherland

Whether you've been through Open House, SLO Days, WOW, or all three, you're probably familiar with Orientation at Cal Poly. But what you may not be familiar with is the people behind the scenes – the magic that makes our programs so special. As Mustangs, we can all look back on our experiences in Orientation fondly – we made best friends, we created unforgettable memories, and we became familiar with this place we all call home. But Orientation does so much more than simply foster these experiences.

To better acquaint folks with the people behind the scenes, we've decided to implement what we're calling "Orientation Stories." These stories are meant to illustrate the ins and outs of our team - as told by those that are most familiar with it.

These "stories" will cover a wide variety of topics – from Open House, Spring Training, SLO Days, WOW, and everything in between. As we share, we hope you enjoy learning more about our program and get a glimpse into our family. Enjoy, Orientation Stories.
