Traditions are abundant

Traditions
Traditions are in abundance in almost every college and university, but in Caltech they are not centered around ancient hymns or sports charms. In many student dormitories, “houses”, common dinners with seating, which are served by students, waiters. In addition, each of the houses during the school year holds an “interhouse” party. Moreover, each house has its own unique traditions. So, students living in the Flems shoot their cannon several times a year; for every Halloween, Dabney House throws a huge pumpkin from the roof of the Milikan Library building, the highest point of the campus; before the winter holidays, students from Lloyd decorate the library building with light garlands, creating a “light fir”.

Practical jokes
Draws have long been accepted at Caltech, often caused by rivalry between student dormitories. University pranksters – they are called “Techers” – periodically indulge in insane outings outside campus. Traditions are abundant famous rallies:

1961: Caltech students changed the layout of the inscriptions that fans of the Washington University team had to lay out cards on the game of the inter-university Rose Bowl rugby championship. In the end, instead of supporting their university, Washington fans put the word “Caltech” over their heads.
1984: Students got into the electronic scoreboard settings during the regular Rose Bowl Game, which ultimately highlighted the devastating result in favor of Caltech against the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (in fact, they played the University of California at Los Angeles and the University of Illinois)
1987: Caltech students changed the famous “Hollywood” lettering on Hollywood hills to “Caltech”
2005: During open days at MIT, Caltech students distributed over 400 T-shirts with the name of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on the chest. Opening the package, the potential MIT-Schnick found the inscription on the back of the T-shirt: “After all, not everyone can enter Caltech”.
2014: “The Jokers’ Club” in huge letters displayed the inscription “PASADENA” in the hills, clearly visible from the stadium where the next Rose Bowl game was played; after the first half, the Pasadena inscription changed to a bright orange Caltech.
2014: The Pranksters Club presented MIT first-year temperature-sensitive mugs – after hot water was poured in them, the MIT emblem on a black background was replaced by the inscription Caltech on a red one.

Location
Caltech’s main campus, about 50 hectares in size, is located in Pasadena, California, about 18 km northeast of downtown Los Angeles. It is within walking distance of Pasadena’s very popular student districts, the Old Town and the main leisure and recreation center, the Playhouse area.
