Caltech Y Celebrates 90th Anniversary

The Caltech Y is celebrating 90 years of providing a variety of social services to members of the Caltech community. 

Greg Fletcher, Program Director for the Caltech Y, was happy to offer the following information on their October 5th birthday celebration:

Dinner and Concert Featuring ALLRISE – An estimated 1500 people gathered in San Pasqual Mall for a campus wide dinner provided by dining services and to listen to the melodic hard rock sound and thought provoking lyrics of the band ALLRISE.  Selected by L.A. Weekly as one of L.A.’s top five bands, ALLRISE brought their signature driving energy and got the party started.

Open Air Movie: An Inconvenient Truth – Following the concert, an audience of 125 students, plus our new Caltech President Chameau and his wife, stayed to view Al Gore’s startling expose into Global Warming in Sherman Fairchild Amphitheater.  With passion, wit, and urgency Gore presented the argument that we must see this issue as a moral challenge facing us all.


The Library is pleased to be able to offer the SFL Amphitheatre for movie events.  Please contact Marie Noren (626-395-3411) if you are interested in using this service. 

The Caltech Y will continue to coordinate special events and activities each term.  Please visit their web site at to find out more about this wonderful organization!
