Dinner with Techers

Building the Caltech Community, one meal at a time
Our first Dinner with Techers in October, 2017: Marie Csete (PhD '00) hosts students for dinner at her home.

Dinner with Techers pairs students with Caltech alumni for small, intimate dinner parties. Our goal is to promote a welcoming and connected Caltech community, bringing students and alumni together in an informal setting. Whether you’re a student who wants to learn more about #LifeAfterCaltech, or an alumnus/a who wants to support current students, Dinner with Techers is the way to do it.
