Techers take over our Instagram account
The Caltech Alumni Association asked Techers to take over our Instagram account (@caltechalumni) and share their experiences and perspectives after graduation. From pursuing a passion for medical research to chasing nature photos while foraging for food along the way, alumni are showing us the diversity of their experiences in their lives after Caltech.
We invite you to share a glimpse of your life with us, your fellow alumni, and current students by using the hashtag #LifeAfterCaltech on social media.
