Linking Club, Team, and Personal Web Pages

At this time, the following types of web pages are not being linked from the main Cal Poly WWW pages: club, team, or personal home pages for Students, Faculty, and Staff. Club pages are linked through the ASI Clubs and Organizations page. A couple of suggestions for getting your personal home page linked up is to do it through a campus Club or Organization you are affiliated with or to see if your major department has a home page for Students, Faculty, or Staff.
