Being a Part of the Cal Poly Mustang Family

Experience San Luis Obispo

Although your student will be the one living on the Central Coast, you should also call San Luis Obispo your second “SLO-me.” Explore the hidden gems of Cal Poly’s campus including the Leaning Pine Arboretum, the Architecture Graveyard, and the Shakespeare Press Museum. Hike up to the “P” for a gorgeous view of the SLO skyline - a great family photo op. 

An added bonus, SLO is sunny and 75 nearly all year around! Hit the beaches for a paddle boarding excursion or soak up the sun while hiking one of San Luis Obispo’s many trails. To truly get the feel of the greater San Luis Obispo community, stroll through Downtown San Luis Obispo Farmers’ Market on a Thursday night and enjoy live music and local food. For some adult fun, explore San Luis Obispo’s extensive list of local wineries and breweries within 15 minutes of campus.
