  • It takes about 2 minutes to get to school from the nearby subway station, but as soon as you get into the park, it's worth the walk. The campus is green and the lawn is well renovated, surrounded by the rice-yellow walls of the library and the teaching of the university.

  • With all the research I have done about Caltech it is amazing I want to be a Google intern while going there I hope it is as good when I go or better. --------A little rain makes me appreciate the sun shine
  • As I walked in, the large and masculine beavers began frolicking in my direction. They showed me a variety of blueprints, including ones for robots going to Mars. They made noises like "kee" and "keek" as they grinned brightly. Soon, the pungent aroma of the headmaster became clear. The massive beaver let out a great "kee" as he picked me up and threw me through the roof, where I landed outdoors in their Jet Propulsion Laboratory. When I landed, I saw four beavers in lab coats working on a rocket. Unfortunately, the rocket was pointed at me. They launched it the second I touched down. I was out cold. When I woke up, I felt shorter, harrier, fatter, and a craving for wood. I looked down and saw two beaver paws. I had become one of them.
  • Probably the smartest place on earth. Looks super awesome. Get the tour. I love to ride my bike through all the time.
  • Clearly a world class faculty club that allows associate memberships. Beautiful "Athenaeum" architecture, world class chefs, stunning surroundings inside and out, wide variety menu, great service.....clearly an experience to strive for.
  • I had an amazing tour of the campus. I was treated to visit several lab's and was amazed by what I seen.
