Every year, Avery hosts faculty for Faculty Dessert Night. We invite our favorite faculty over for dinner and a talent show, followed by dessert. Shared here are just some exclusive highlights from this year’s event.
1. This face.
2. The faculty. Graduate and post-doctoral students were also very much welcome. The graduate student in the red and black dress knew all the lines of “Let It Go,” and, it turned out, most of the songs from the Frozen soundtrack.

4. I don’t have a picture, but Professor Harry Gray signed my copy of his book! (It was the very slim book that we used in Ch 1a and 1b. I was hesitant to ask at first, but he was really friendly and even included a short and sweet message to me. I’m never selling this, or else I’d be a terrible chemistry major. (:
5.Much talent such wow.Alina, Roel, Jon, and Jalani are all in acappella groups on campus. They each sound amazing on their own, too.
Depending on the house and style of room that you choose, rooms can look pretty different at Caltech. Generally, the south houses (Blacker, Dabney, Fleming, Ricketts) have similar options, and the north houses (Lloyd, Page, Venerable) are similar in their room styles as well. Rooms in Bechtel and Avery tend to look different from the north and south house rooms as well. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing an example of what a Fleming (south house) single generally looks like, and how I’ve chosen to decorate mine.
Now, based on the title you may be wondering what kind of story this will be. As you will soon find out, it’s a story of adventure born out of the pure, dark chaos that fills the minds of sleep deprived Caltech undergrads.
I’m starting a new miniseries on the blog – Film Club! Each episode, I’ll share a short clip from a popular piece of media, and then completely dissect and overanalyze it, because let’s face it, I’m doing it in my head already anyway. You say “buzzkill.” I say “science.” We’ll kick things off with a clip from Gravity Falls I discussed a bit in my previous post: Season 2 Episode 12, A Tale of Two Stans. If somehow you haven’t watched this show yet (?!)… spoilers incoming!
