Remembering Cal Poly Students Who Have Passed Away


Dear Cal Poly Community:

We are heartbroken to report that one of our students, Noah DeVico, passed away, October 13, 2020, after an accident in San Luis Obispo. He was a first-year industrial engineering student from Camarillo, CA.

Noah's sudden and tragic passing is devastating news to share. The university remains in contact with his family to offer our support, and our thoughts are with them and Noah's friends during this difficult time.

The will be a local memorial held on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at 1:30PM at 835 Serpa Ranch Rd, San Luis Obispo,CA. 93501, hosted by Grace Fellowship.
