Program Description:

International Poly Hosts Overview

The International Poly Hosts Program helps foster connections between Cal Poly international students and the Cal Poly community. A Poly Host is a Cal Poly staff or faculty member who has volunteered their time to get to know one, two or even three Cal Poly international students. International students will get the opportunity to experience life in the local community through occasional visits with their Poly Host. These visits can include various types of activities, such as an informal dinner at the Host's home, going out to see a movie together, meeting at a coffee shop and/or celebrating a family or holiday occasion together. A Poly Host will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of other cultures while also having the opportunity to share their culture. Matches are typically made within a couple weeks after submitting an application. Otherwise, you will be placed on a wait list.

This application is only open to Cal Poly Staff/Faculty

This program is only open to all current Cal Poly staff/faculty. Unfortunately, we are not accepting applications from outside community members at this time. You will be required to log in to your Cal Poly account in order to complete the application. If you have any questions, please email intlservices@calpoly.edu. Thank you for your interest in supporting our international students!
