 About the GrC Alumni Chapter:

An affinity chapter of the Cal Poly Alumni Association since January 2003, the GrC Alumni Chapter is inviting you to become involved in an exciting group formed to provide interaction and information between alumni and students of the Graphic Communication Department at Cal Poly.

Join us in building an organization to unite and network with our entire 2,800+ alumni. We sponsor social events, fundraising events to support students and our own alumni activities, and many other activities!

The annual Doc Stapleton Memorial Golf Tournament, hosted in partnership with Catalyst Paper, raises funds to support two annual $1,000 scholarships, the Doc Stapleton Memorial Scholarship and the Shelley Gore Memorial Scholarship. We also donate annually to support Mat Pica Pi.
