Help send Graphic Communication students to the world's leading trade fair for print technologies!

We've reached our initial goal of $15,000! Thank you so much to all of our generous donors— we want to build off this success, so we've increased our goal to $20,000, which would allow us to send more students to Drupa!


Cal Poly Graphic Communication (GrC) is a nationally recognized program accredited by the Accrediting Council for Collegiate Graphic Communications (ACCGC). Fully committed to Cal Poly’s Learn-by-doing motto, GrC prioritizes students’ success by developing their career preparedness through an ever-evolving curriculum and extra-curricular activities. Hands-on laboratories, career days, and sending students and faculty to conferences present precious learning opportunities that our industry partners and alumni generously support.

Drupa is the leading trade show for the printing and graphics industry. It takes place every four years in Düsseldorf, Germany, and is a must-attend event for everyone involved in the printing, packaging, and graphics industry.

This year, we want to bring students to Drupa!

At Drupa, students will hugely benefit from meeting and connecting with professionals worldwide and learning about the latest trends, techniques, and technologies. Specifically, Drupa showcases the latest and most innovative printing technologies and equipment, some of which are employed in learning activities at Cal Poly GrC, including digital prepress, print production, converting, and packaging. Students and faculty will have the opportunity to see and experience the latest developments, which will further their understanding and knowledge in the printing and graphics industry.

Your contributions to this fundraising will allow a student team to travel to Drupa to learn and experience the industry uniquely. As always, any amount is appreciated.
