Whether you’re a Cal Poly alumnus and have lived in San Luis Obispo for 35 years or you’re a freshman and have lived in the dorms for three weeks, the city of San Luis Obispo is your home.
Working with the city and neighborhood associations, we’ve come up with a way to allow students and long-term residents alike to spend time together without much of the anticipated awkwardness.
Good Neighbor Week has been the brainchild of the Student Community Liaison Committee (SCLC) for some time. In the Laguna Lake neighborhood today and Friday, there will be events that allow students and long-term residents to learn about preparing for natural disasters, eat great food at a potluck, play in a bounce house, watch “The Incredibles” and leave having made friends with the neighbors that share our community.
The Disaster Preparedness course will take place today 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the pavilion at C.L. Smith School, 1375 Balboa St. Coffee and dessert will be served as the San Luis Obispo Fire Department gives a few tips on safety and how to be prepared for major natural disasters.
The potluck (that means lots of food!), bounce house and movie will be this Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. also in the pavilion. All of the activities will be open to all age groups so everybody will be able to enjoy the vast quantities of food, bouncing our hearts out, and laughing alongside our neighbors and new friends.
Todd Maki is ASI president and a mechanical engineering senior who hopes to bounce with you this Friday.
