"Choose your number 1 (highest) preference for host pairing"

You will be paired with a current Cal Poly student participating in a cultural organization as your host for the weekend. They will house you in their dorm/apartment and will mentor you throughout the weekend. In order to make the best pairing possible, we ask that you rank each of the categories you could be paired by in order of preference. Your number 1 preference should be the category you most wish to be paired by out of the five categories (ethnicity, major, organization, transfer student, LGBT).

"Bus service from San Francisco and Los Angeles"

This is a need-based, free service for students needing assistance in transportation for the weekend. There is limited space available, therefore only students will be allowed on the buses. Please describe your need for this free service and a confirmation email will be sent to those who qualify and have a seat reserved. There will be only one pick up/drop off location from each location and it is your responsibility to get there on time for departure.

"Transportation to and from SLO Airport or Amtrak Station"

This is a free service for students arriving at the SLO Airport or Amtrak Station. We will ask for a copy of your plane or Amtrak ticket at a later time to confirm pick up and drop off times. Note that there is a Cal Poly Amtrak Bus Stop (SLP) right on campus that would not require this service.

"Friday night Parent Panel and First Generation Student Workshop"

Parents, guardians, and educational advocates will have the opportunity to learn more about what to expect when their student begins college. We understand there may be generational and/or cultural gaps that can make explaining the importance and process of obtaining higher education very difficult. These panels and workshops serve to answer questions and comfort those whose student may be attending Cal Poly in the Fall.
