Finals week has come to a close, not with a bang, but not with a whimper either. It was closer to a “meh,” really. Regardless, its time to wrap up third term and the year, and what better way than graduation?
Cue the pictures (thanks to a resident junior, Nina Budaeva)!
A happy Daniil Kitchaev of Blacker House with a happy tassel.
Russel Newman of Lloyd House moving his tassel. Those things look fun.
So yeah, just a picture post this time around. Its been quite a blast this last year with the seniors, now alumni. Now they disperse into the real world, respected degrees in hand. With that, I hope they can come back and remember this place, for all the good times and bad. As Elon Musk said, “You are the magicians of the 21st century…go out and make some magic.”
Until next time,

What do you remember feeling when you found out you had been accepted to Caltech?
In short: I was completely shocked. Caltech had been my first-choice school for years (warm weather, great science, what’s not to love?). However, I didn’t ever think I’d get in: nobody had gotten in from my high school in the living memory of any teacher and my guidance counselor had told me point blank that it was a longshot.
It’s crazy to think that it has been four years now since I was applying to college. I remember it vividly. This week we’re spending some time reflecting on our personal admissions processes, and how we ended up at Caltech. There’s one question though that I wanted to spin out into a separate post: “what advice would you give to the admitted class of 2025?” And I think the best way to do this is to tell a more detailed story than I did in my other post.
