Cal Poly's Annual Open House, April 17-19, 2020

To ensure you are able to learn more and ask questions about Cal Poly from the comfort of home, we've made Open House virtual — and you're invited!

We're kicking it all off Friday evening, April 17, with a welcome reception featuring President Armstrong and special guest speakers, followed by a line-up of sessions you can pick and choose from to customize your virtual Open House experience.

Please keep in mind that you'll need your Cal Poly username to access and register for each event you choose to attend — and be sure to explore Cal Poly virtually to view tours, attend information sessions and find other ways to connect with current Cal Poly students.

Our Big Events include:

  • University Welcome, Friday, April 17th at 4pm, where the week 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.
  • College Welcomes, Saturday, April 18th, where you can learn more about your specific college and the resources they offer. While Learn by Doing is part of all six of our academic colleges, each on has their own set of programs, degrees and opportunities.
  • Welcome to Life on Campus, Sunday, April 19th, 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.

Whether you're a new or current student, family member, community member, or a returning alumnus, we're excited to see you virtually at this year's Open House!
