Unlike MIT, it is a tiny University, sometimes confused with a McMansion from a Hollywood star. Despite it's location, it's students rarely get out of the campus, since they have an incredible amout of work. Procrastination doesn't exist in Caltech, lest they want to stay 4 days without sleep working on their assignments.
Their Core Curriculum consists of Math and Sciences, and nothing else. Caltech is extremely focused on Engineering and Science, they have some Nobel Laureates, many of their students end up working for the NASA or on Silicon Valley, but at the expense of getting their soul sucked out.
