Tony Parker, a project manager in Facilities Design and Construction, and Vince Riley, a Super Lead in Athletics, Physical Education, and Recreation, have been awarded the 2012 Thomas W. Schmitt Annual Staff Prize. The prize recognizes staff members within the Caltech community whose contributions embody the values and spirit that enable the Institute to achieve excellence in research and education.
The young faces you see on campus today are not new prefrosh. They are students participating in Caltech's annual Take Our Children to Work Day. Sponsored by Caltech Human Resources,today's event is an opportunity for children and teenagers—fromfourth graders to high school seniors—to explore future career possibilities and learn more about what goes on at Caltech.
In typical Caltech fashion, the Development and Institute Relations (DIR) department today welcomed their new boss, Brian Lee, with a prank: every member of the 100-person team wore a tie to make the former East Coaster feel at home in California.
Caltech may not have a formal art program, but that doesn't stop faculty, staff, and students from getting creative in their free time. The community's finest paintings, photographs, and drawings are now on display as part of "Off the Clock: Art on Your Own Time." The exhibition, which also includes jewelry, woodwork, textiles, and pottery, is the seventh annual event to feature Caltech artists. It is available for viewing from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14, through Thursday, February 16, in Dabney Lounge.
