The Pre-Collegiate Symposium is an event sponsored each year to give sophomores from a select group of Partner high schools an opportunity to visit Cal Poly for an overnight stay. Visiting students are hosted overnight by a current student who lives on campus. In addition to staying overnight in one of the residence halls, the program offers a variety of activities including tours of the campus, workshops presented by the academic colleges and games in the University Union. The event generally takes place during the month of February. Currently enrolled students can serve as hosts (see Vista Host Program for details) or as paid Student Leaders.
