So, what exactly does it take to get through 3 (almost 4!) years of Tech?
1. Friends (taken at Lloyd’s Casino Night, 2010).
7. . . . and doing it all over again in the spirit of Christmas.
I could break it down even more (such as: dancing to your favorite song at 2am, late-night food runs, professors who are always willing and excited to hear about your future, jumping into the ocean, wearing a frilly sundress mid-winter, the beautiful sunny weather!!. . . ), but the point is:
Tech is more rigorous than anything you will have ever encountered before, but your experience here will last a lifetime. Enjoy it, and don’t let being occasionallyoften swamped in work ruin the fact that this is a truly unique and amazing place to call home.
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.
