Katelyn Lee

Hi, my name is Katelyn, and I’m a junior from New York City majoring in Bioengineering! As a member of Lloyd house, I serve as the SocD (Social Director) and head LASR (Lloyd Alley Social Rep). When I’m not planning events for Lloyd, you can find me singing with the acapella group, Fluid Dynamics, tutoring in the Caltech Y RISE program, or researching paper-based diagnostic tests with the Pierce lab. I am an avid runner and museum-goer, and I love to read, tinker, and do crosswords.

Our days were spent snorkeling with turtles, sea lions, and schools of fish, and our nights were spent sitting on the bow of the ship, talking all together under the stars. It was truly a spring break I will never forget.

I remember hugging my parents as they happily shouted, “I knew it! I knew it!” It was an extremely exciting moment, and the rest of the day was really just a blur of my friends and family congratulating me on the acceptance.

Musings on a Small School

Whenever I tell someone that Caltech has an undergraduate population of less than one thousand people, their first reaction is disbelief. “Really?” they exclaim. “You must know everyone! How can you get a real college experience with so few undergrads?”
