The Caltech Architectural Tour Service (CATS)

Contact: Romy Wyllie (626) 794-7773

CATS is a group of Women's Club member who give architectural tours of the Caltech campus. We also hold a one-hour study session followed by a one-hour business meeting in the Athenaeum on the first Tuesday of each month starting at 10:30 am - beginnng October 1, 2013. In addition to gathering information on the campus buildings, we take occasional field trips to places of architectural interest. Anyone can join - all you need is an interest in the campus and some flexible time. We have a complete script of our tour material and give personal training to new members. If you are remotely interested, why not come to our meetings and find out more about us? Call or email Romy for more information.

Community tours are given on the fourth Thursday of each month at 10:30 am, starting at the Athenaeum. The tour lasts from 1.5 to 2 hours and is open to all members of the Caltech community and visitors to the campus.
