Orientation Month of Giving

Orientation Month of Giving is a month-long event focused on fundraising for Cal Poly’s Week of Welcome. The Week of Welcome (WOW) is a 60+ year long tradition at Cal Poly taking place in September leading up to and around New Mustangs' first days of classes. Students start off their careers as Mustangs during move-in, kick off the year with the Big Fall Welcome, explore the Central Coast, learn about their roles as part of the Mustang Nation, start on their Journey to Academic Success, and make life-long connections.

Your gift supports the legacy of our traditions and program, directly impacting the leadership experience of our over 900+ WOW Leaders in the 50+ hours of training they receive and 50+ hours given back dedicated to new students.
