If you are a CRP major and not on the email distribution list, please send an email from your Cal Poly email address to crp@calpoly.edu to request to be added.

Recruiting: If you are interested in sharing an internship or job announcement with the CRP student body, please email your information to crp@calpoly.edu and we will distribute it to our student body. Thank you!
