Even from my brief experience at Caltech for Pre-Frosh Weekend, I was impressed at how seriously my future upperclassmen work hard and play hard. Most amazing was how they respected each other and the Honor Code, which dictates the way the Caltech community operates. They're incredibly inspiring and each super passionate, and I look forward to the next four years with them.
