Thank you to everyone who attended the 2018 Reunion Weekend and 81st Annual Seminar Day. We were excited to welcome over 1,350 alumni and friends back to campus for four days of festivities.
Throughout the weekend, alumni revisited their Caltech intellectual experience, reconnected with their fellow Techers, relived memories, and discovered what has changed—and what hasn’t—since their time on campus.
Undergraduate class years ending in "3" and "8" celebrated their 5th – 70th reunions, and the Class of 1968 was inducted into the Half Century Club at a special luncheon. House reunions were also celebrated.
The weekend line-up included Seminar Day, which offered alumni the opportunity to once again become immersed in a full day of life-long learning alongside current students and faculty members. Featuring the latest discoveries from Caltech scientists and engineers across all six divisions and JPL, and spotlighting undergraduate and graduate research, attendees got a firsthand look at the Institute's revolutionary contributions to science and society.
During Seminar Day's General Session, keynote speaker Michelle Feynman shared what it was like “Growing up Feynman”; in addition, this year’s recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Award—Gary Demos (BS '71), Gary A. Flandro (MS '60, PhD '67), Jessica Tuchman Mathews (PhD '74), Arthur B. McDonald (PhD '70), and Ronald H. Willens (BS '53, MS '54, PhD '61)—were honored.
