First day of being a Techer:
I came into to PFW thinking that everyone at Caltech would be very stressed out from the well-known, heavy load of work from the previous night. I was surprised to see that just about everyone on campus was cheerful and still excited about PFW and their work. I started the day by wondering around to get a feel of campus and then visiting the Elowitz lab to attend someone’s thesis defense. This was a great experience in that I got to talk to a couple of alumni, and professors I want to work with, about how they feel about Caltech.
Aside from that, Caltech and the general Pasadena area has been splendid (especially this perfect weather)! I look forward to my first night of being a Techer and some of the social aspects of the school.
