What is Connections?
Connections is a social resource network providing peer connections to Cal Poly students. Due to COVID-19, some Connections programming is currently virtual. If you are a Cal Poly student seeking disability-related services, please visit the Disability Resource Center (DRC) website. For campus updates on COVID-19, visit Cal Poly's Coronavirus Information page.
The Connections umbrella of programming comprises:
Gatherings to promote campus community and help students meet new people and form friendships. Students are invited to socialize in a low-pressure, welcoming environment, where they can engage as much or as little as is comfortable. Being registered with the DRC is not required.
A weekly group that provides a chance for students with autism to spend time around neurodivergent peers with no expectation of performing neurotypicality.
A weekly group for students who experience chronic invisible illness to share experiences, resources, and support in a safe environment of peers.
