Peaceful, yet dynamic

So pleasant to walk around the University's campus and not only looking at the buildings but also the people who perform such a great task in leading the way to future discoveries. I mostly liked the pond with the turtles as well as the coffee shop area.

A beautiful campus and a scientific mecca
Dec 2019
A bastion of science and the home of the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL). A seat of tremendous knowledge and some of the world's brightest minds.

Beautiful Campus

CalTech as it is popularly called has a beautiful campus. There is a lot of greenery as well in the midst of all the buildings. Certainly would very highly recommend to visit the CalTech campus to anyone.

Top ranking of world universities in superb campus
Oct 2019
We chose a Sunday afternoon to stroll around this esteemed campus. It was remarkably tranquil without the normal bustle of student life.

It’s a wonderful and extensive space, no doubt inspiring the research and study undertaken here. Lovely architecture is to be seen, combined with copious greenery and flora.

The Kerckhoff Biological Sciences Laboratories building is gorgeous with much decorative features. As the highest edifice the Millikan Library is impressive with a fine water feature fronting.

The chemist and inventor Arnold Beckman had a major influence on the Institute. While a Professor here he founded Beckman Instruments, whose instruments featured and continue to feature in laboratories worldwide.

An eponymous Auditorium is another landmark building, an architectural gem.

Wonderful college.

Cal Tech is one of the top Universities in the world but it is not the best "tourist" spot. By all means come by when you are in Pasadena and see it when you are close by but one does not need to make a special trip from LA or Hollywood.

This is one more amazing university of California and Los Angeles. It is related to NASA and most of projects of JPL. You can find interesting events in this university, always. Parking is available, too.

A beautful campus
Apr 2019 • Family
We visited the campus for a parent event. It is a beautiful campus to walk around and see the sites. Of course, the history of the campus is interesting and it's amazing that so many great minds have chosen CalTech as their place to work, collaborate, and receive their education.

Beautiful campus

This campus, regardless of the new buildings still has some of the finest Art Deco architecture. You won't see Albert Einstein anymore but you'll get the feel he had been there.
