A Message from the Dean of Graduate Studies

Dear Graduate Students,

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation. I speak for everyone at Caltech when I say how proud we are of your hard work and commitment. You are joining a prestigious list of alumni, and we look forward to hearing of your future contributions to your field.

In recognition of all your accomplishments, we have planned a variety of activities.  We hope you will attend as many of these events as your schedule allows and offer your friends and family a chance to celebrate your achievements.

The commencement website outlines many of the planned activities.  These include a reception, celebration luncheon, and of course, the graduation ceremony.  After the commencement exercises on Friday, the Athenaeum will be open for lunch for you and your guests.

We hope you have enjoyed your time at Caltech as much as we have enjoyed sharing the journey with you.  We will be on the Beckman Mall on June 16th to congratulate you in person!
