Tuesday, December 2, 2014

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, non-profits, families, businesses, and students will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Bringing together hundreds of non-profit organizations, #GivingTuesday is a special call to action on a national day of giving, with the goal to inspire philanthropy every day. For the first time, Cal Poly College of Engineering has partnered with#GivingTuesday to conduct a 24-hour giving campaign to support the Learn by Doing promise. On this day, your gift will contribute to the essential elements of a Cal Poly Engineering education: projects, labs, and clubs. Without your support, the Cal Poly Engineering experience would not be what is it today.

Help us Help our Heroes

Thank our servicemen & servicewomen

Thanksgiving break is just around the corner and we hope you are ready for some time off! As the holiday season approaches, the MEP and the CENG Advising Center will be collecting goods to send to our servicemen and servicewomen abroad. Many of the troops spend this time away from their families and it is our hope to provide some additional support during this season. This is a great way to show your appreciation for your troops and provide them with essentials that aren’t easily accessible to them.

We will be collecting items until December 11.

If you would like to donate, we will have two drop off locations:
The MEP (Building 40, Room 115)
CENG Dean's Office (Building 192, Room 301)
