Tours and Visits
The CAFES Ambassadors strive to promote a higher education in agriculture at Cal Poly by helping at campus events, traveling to high schools, junior colleges and career shows, and giving group tours of our agricultural facilities. Please scroll down the page for more information about our services. If you would like to schedule a tour, request the CAFES Ambassadors visit your school or career show, or need more information about Cal Poly CAFES events, call or e-mail us using the following contact information:
The CAFES Ambassadors schedule group tours upon request, we will do our best to accommodate you but two weeks notice is appreciated. Tours are generally given of the dairy, equine and horticulture units. We may be able to accommodate tours of other agricultural units, but because of access and biosecurity reasons not all areas are open to the public.
If you are interested in a major at Cal Poly, contact the department specific to your prospective major. This information can be found at cafes.calpoly.edu/departments-majors. Your prospective department can set up an appointment for you to get more information or meet with a faculty member.
If you do schedule a tour, remember that Cal Poly is located in the coastal hills of San Luis Obispo. Please notify us of any accommodation you may need for travel on campus and/or a campus walking tour. We ask that you wear close-toed shoes in case the ground is wet and suggest you bring hand sanitizer, especially if you are bringing elementary students, in the case that your group is permitted to pet some of the animals.
The CAFES Ambassadors are available to visit your high school, junior college or career show at your request.
