LAURA HU, EXCOMM PRESIDENT

         It has been a joy and inspiration to serve as the Caltech Y’s student ExComm president, during anunprecedented time. 2020 has been full of unique challenges. Caltech and institutions around the world have transitioned to online models, fundamentally changing the ways in which we learn and engage.

Laura Hu

         Amidst the challenges, we have seen versatility and new opportunities. During a time that can be isolating, the Caltech Y provides avenues of connection. ExComm and student leadership have continued to meet regularly and plan new programming adapted to the virtual environment. Technology has brought together alumni and speakers from all over the world, speaking on an array of timely topics interacting with pressing social issues. Students have also been motivated to serve their communities, leading to a record-number of participants in the Caltech Y’s tutoring programs. With these programs and others such as the Science Policy Symposium, virtual Community Service and Advocacy Fair, and Adventure 101 series, the Caltech Y continues to build community around our five pillars of leadership, service, adventure, civic engagement, and perspective.

        Although my senior year at Caltech has occurred in unexpected ways, I am thankful for the consistent presence of the Caltech Y, linking both in-person and online experiences. Like for so many others, the Caltech Y has been a central part of my experience at Caltech. This is made possible by your support. Thank you for your commitment to students and the Caltech Y, and we are thankful for theopportunities to stay connected.

I have been able to access the outdoors and go to a lot of places I wouldn't have known about or been able to go without the knowledge and support of the Y. Being a part of the community at the Y is among the best choices I have made at Caltech.
