Chris Cortez  President

Chris Cortez President

Hello everyone, my name is Chris and it is an absolute honor to serve as ASP’s President. I am a third year student majoring in CRP and minoring in Geography. I transferred to Cal Poly in Fall 2017 from Santa Ana College. Growing up, I’ve always had an interest in cities and the built environment around me. I was constantly intrigued how cities were established and how they grew to be what they are today. I wish to carry forward ASP’s continuous efforts in promoting professionalism, inclusivity, and diversity in our student body. I am from Garden Grove and I enjoy going to Disneyland, taking my dog to the beach, and spending time with family and my girlfriend. I grew up in a haunted house and breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Feel free to say hello if you see me anywhere on campus!

Hello there! I am Nick Johnston, a third year City & Regional Planning Major pursuing minors in Construction Management, Real Property Development, and Sustainable Environments. Professionally, I am most interested in international development planning, housing, and the design-build realm. Outside of class I enjoy taking advantage of the awesome open space in San Luis Obispo: concurring the Nine Sisters, splashing around in the surf, and biking everywhere. I look forward to serving ASP in the capacity of Vice President this year.

I am so excited for this year, I know ASP already has some great ideas! I can't wait to meet and welcome all of our new members. If you see me on campus, please come say hi.
