Residential Life Activities and Events

The Residential Life staff implements and supports events and programs designed to enhance the overall educational experience at Caltech. By promoting a comprehensive range of co-curricular activities that reflect the interests of the student body and Caltech community, we strive to engage students in the traditions, social life, cultural expression, and intellectual opportunities provided at Caltech. These events and activities also provide opportunities for students to learn about issues and topics that deal with everyday college life and extend learning and growth to the residence hall environment.
