Cal Poly, San Luis City Leaders Send Letter To Businesses Asking Them To End Graduation Day Bar Crawls

Posted on Saturday, May 3, 2014 12:29am

Bars in one Central Coast City are being asked to end a tradition of opening early on graduation weekend for a local university, because of problems caused by intoxicated students.

Cal Poly San Luis Obispo officials, and San Luis Obispo’s mayor jointly sent a letter to the city’s downtown business association, asking for their help.

In the letter, the officials say that intoxicated students have disrupted what is supposed to be a special day for graduates, and families.

The letter says while officials understand they are asking a lot, they are hoping businesses will consider the request.

Cal Poly’s commencement ceremonies begin at 9 a.m. on June 14th and 15th.

In the past, some bars would open as early as 6 a.m. for pre graduation pub crawls.
