Techer /tek’ er/: a student at Caltech
Caltech is a scholarly and creative community where history and tradition coexist with a passion for innovation, intense intellectual curiosity, and a healthy amount of fun, where it's relatively easy to find your niche, be known for yourself, and connect with people as colleagues and friends.
Techers are by definition ardent scientists or engineers, but they also have a surprisingly wide range of other passions: sports, music, dance, drama, community service, cooking, art, and much more. Whatever your interest, there's probably a group of Techers who share it.
Undergraduate life tends to revolve around Caltech's distinctive student Houses, where Techers eat, study, and socialize together. And more than 150 clubs and organizations provide opportunities to take a break from academics.
