Fall 2020 Orientation
Hello and welcome to the California Institute of Technology! We are delighted that you are pursuing your graduate studies at Caltech. Though we wish we could greet you all in person on campus, our hope is that you will still find many opportunities to learn about Caltech and engage with your incoming class through the various events planned. We have scheduled fully remote orientation programming for all incoming PhD and MS students. Please peruse this website to learn more about the many events you will attend during Orientation Week.
Under the "Orientation Schedule 2020" tab, you will find the schedule of all live events. Live events, such as the Faculty and Student Panels, are required viewing. However, these events will be recorded and made available if you are unable to attend live.
Explore the "Breakout Rooms" tab to learn more about opportunities to meet with small groups of your peers and upperclassmen. Each Breakout Room will cover a topic of interest to incoming students. We strongly encourage you to attend at least one group.
The "Orientation Modules" tab will bring you to a playlist of required educational videos. Please plan to view each video by the end of Orientation Week. Each of these videos will introduce you to a resource on campus, all with valuable information that will help you during your time at Caltech.
Again, welcome to Caltech! The Graduate Studies Office stands ready to support you. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about orientation or your graduate studies, generally. Go Beavers!
