Celebrate Cal Poly Founders Day with Alumni
On March 8, 1901, Governor Henry Gage signed legislation establishing Cal Poly. This exciting announcement came after a group of local citizens led by journalist Myron Angel had been lobbying for a state school in San Luis Obispo since 1894.
To commemorate this special day in Cal Poly's history, alumni communities and networks are hosting gatherings across the US on March 8, 2024. Join us to network with fellow alumni in your area, meet alumni volunteer leaders and show your Cal Poly pride!
See below for the available events organized by volunteers in the community.
Don't see your community on the list? Kick off the new year by getting involved with Cal Poly alumni! We are always looking for enthusiastic alums to volunteer their time hosting events, supporting their community and sharing their Cal Poly pride.
