Caltech Up Close
Caltech Up Close, our fall fly-in program is back in person this year. The program focuses on the experience of students from underrepresented and/or underserved backgrounds in STEM. These backgrounds may include but are not limited to sex, gender, first-generation to college, race/ethnicity, low-income, DACA/undocumented, and rural students.
Through Caltech Up Close 2022, participants will uncover what life as a student-scientist is like in Pasadena, CA. This year's program will take place October 8 - 10, 2022 and during the multi-overnight visit, participants will:
- Explore Caltech's 124-acre campus
- Connect with campus community members, including faculty and current students
- Discover undergrad academics, research, and internships, as well as student life
- Analyze application tips and requirements
- Grasp admissions and financial aid processes
- Experience a glimpse of life in Southern California
The undergraduate admissions office is working with Student Wellness Services to ensure all participants adhere to Caltech's COVID-19 Safety Policies, thus continuing our common objective of maintaining a safe environment for the entire Caltech community.
