Page house alley event number 199835892: bubble soccer!
One of our UCCs, Chi Chi, rented a set of “bubbles” for 24 hours, and we went HAM on them. We only spent about an hour playing soccer with them, and spent the rest of the time fooling around.
And they were so much fun to play with. We obviously started with running into each other and trying to knock each other over. Momentum was really hard to keep track of, and small people kept sending bigger people flying across the field. Let me know in the comments if you know why that could be ;)
We got a lot of time to fool around with the bubbles, then got down to a game. we got about 25 people to come out and had a class vs. class tournament. I think the seniors won.
I took my alley event (about 5 people came with me) to see Mad Max: Fury Road on Thursday night. I loved the movie, and it was fully subsidized by my house and Caltech Housing! Alley events are such a good way to get out of the bubble or even just take a quick weekend break.
Caltech may be a small campus, but it has a large variety of food options. There are three main dining locations on campus — The Lee F. Browne Dining Hall, the Hameetman Center (which houses our beloved Red Door Cafe), and the Broad Café.
As a Caltech student, I obviously have a love for STEM. But for me, that love is incomplete without the bigger picture—the role that STEM can play in helping society. That connection between science and humanity served as the initial motivation for one of my primary passions: organizing for environmental justice.
Now that the 2021 baseball season has come to close, I want to take a little trip down memory lane to the 2019 Major League Baseball (MLB) playoffs. To set the scene, after an exciting wild card game win, the Washington Nationals (my team) began a five game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers win the first and third game of the series, and the Nationals win the second and fourth game, making game five a do-or-die situation. The final game took place at Dodgers Stadium, a mere 20 minute drive from Caltech. I pounced on this opportunity, going to the game with my fellow baseball-fanatic and Caltech student, Arya.
