More than 1,500 Caltech alumni and guests returned to campus May 15–18 to celebrate Caltech's Alumni Reunion Weekend, featuring the 77th annual Seminar Day. Techers took part in more than 80 events and activities over the four-day weekend, including class and house reunions, social events, tours, networking opportunities, lectures, family activities, and more.
The 77th annual Seminar Day, held on May 17th, featured presentations by Jamie Bock, Caltech professor of physics and principal investigator with BICEP 2, Carver Mead (BS ’56, MS ’57, PhD ’60), and the presentation of the Distinguished Alumni Awards.
"The primary way that an institution like Caltech impacts the world is through its people, especially its students, and alumni—you," said Edward M. Stolper, interim president of Caltech. "We celebrate your achievements and welcome you back to campus."
"Reunion Weekend and Seminar Day are the premier events for the Caltech Alumni Association," said Heather Dean (BS ’00, MS ’00), president of the CAA for 2012-13. "We thank all the alumni who returned to campus as well as the volunteers and friends who helped to make this weekend such a success."
