Experience Open House
From your own home
Congratulations on being accepted to, or waitlisted for, Cal Poly for the fall 2021 quarter! While we are disappointed we can't invite you to campus to experience Cal Poly in person, we are excited to bring Cal Poly to you virtually. The events of our weeklong virtual Open House will help you to get to know campus, answer your questions and, hopefully, make your college decision a little easier.
Our virtual Open House kicks off with a special university welcome for accepted students from our campus leadership, including President Armstrong. You will also hear from current students and alumni about their time at Cal Poly and how important Learn by Doing has been for them in their education and careers.
While Learn by Doing is part of all six of our academic colleges, each on has their own set of programs, degrees and opportunities. During these session, you will be welcomed by our Provost, Cynthia Jackson-Elmoore and will be able to learn more about your specific college and all of the resources it offers.
If you need a little guidance as to what college houses your major, we can help. Individual department sessions for each college are listed in the full schedule.
Welcome to Life on Campus
Join Keith Humphrey, our Vice-President for Student Affairs, and other special guests to learn about student life on campus and the many resources we offer including housing, dining and more.
