LAFC v. Minnesota United FC Soccer Game - October 4, 2023
"I had such a great time taking a break from doing sets to watch a super fun, high-energy soccer match. We had a blast coming up with our penalty kick celebrations as well. It's amazing to see events like this being put on for us for free and I would love to see more of them!"
- Camilo Garrido
"I had a great time at the game! Getting to 6 total goals combined between the two teams is more than I could ask for, especially because the local team won. Especially seeing two goals in the first 5 minutes made for a super fun environment."
- Albert S. Chen
"Thanks for hosting the LAFC game. I thought it was a great way for me to meet other soccer-loving underclassmen and get off campus for a bit."

Hadestown at the Ahmanson Theatre - October 13, 2023
"Hadestown was so incredible—with all the build-up and light work, and the unavoidability of the tragedy, I left the theater in a daze. That's the catharsis of Greek theater for you. In the following days, the final twist of "and we tell the story anyway" keeps coming back to me. Studying here is tough, but we knew that coming in. And yet, we do it anyway. We attend lecture, grind out sets, again and again, despite—even because of—the challenge. And on top of all that, we find the time to watch musicals, to go on hikes and paint murals and orchestrate string ensembles, and there's something beautiful about that. Thank you and the OSE so much for this experience."
- Albert Y. Huang
"I just saw this email while I was humming "Wait For Me" (from Hadestown) and that felt very fitting. I loved this event! I didn't manage to take any good photos, but I'm so glad that Caltech sponsored a completely free trip for us because I never would have seen this musical otherwise and it has changed my brain chemistry a little. Thank you so much for organizing this trip, and I'd gladly support any other art and culture-related events Caltech holds in the future!"
- Ling-Yi Wu
"I had a great time! I appreciate Caltech investing in opportunities now for students to explore opportunities off-campus and in the arts."
- Gabi Twombly
"I enjoyed visiting the Ahmanson Theater because I was able to enjoy the arts with my friends from Caltech. It was nice being able to get off campus and to explore the arts for a day."
- Turner Bumbary
"LA is such a hub of art and culture. Unfortunately, being international students without cars it can be hard to get all the way down to LA from Pasadena, so we loved the opportunity to check out this phenomenal musical!"
