East Coast Chapter

The East Coast chapter is made up of members located in New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Boston, Washington D.C., Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Both alumni and non-alumni converge for three main events a year, hosted mainly in New York City. This chapter was formed to offer our members' opportunities to build professional and personal networks outside of the local chapter and remain informed and connected with the latest innovation and discovery taking place at Caltech.
