In case you were wondering, Cal Poly starts the fall quarter on September 12th. The week before is when the Week of Welcome (WoW) happens and we see the groups of Wow-ies in downtown SLO and other places.
Cuesta College started their classes this week as well as the Lucia Mar School District. Most other school districts start classes next week. I guess the days are gone when K-12 school started after Labor day.
