Pasadena is internationally known for the Rose Parade® and the Rose Bowl Game® but residents and thousands of students know another side of Pasadena – The Unique College Town. With six colleges/universities based in the foothills of Pasadena, there’s a lot of learning going on in this town. From artists to theologians and everything in-between, we’ve got intellectual stimulation for everyone. And what would a college town be without a little bit of friendly competition?

The second annual Pasadena Collegiate Field Tournament kicked off this April challenging our local institutions to bring their A-Game, and indeed, they did. After a fun filled day of singing, dancing, star wars reenactments, Lego car races, Frisbee tosses, tons of potatoes (literally), and good ole capture the flag, the schools ignited on Pasadena City College’s Robinson Field.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the tied-for-first winners of the 2011 Pasadena Collegiate Field Tournament – Fuller Theological Seminary and the California Institute of Technology. We’d like to thank all of the colleges that participated in this year’s event and invite you to take a closer look at the institutions that make Pasadena a truly unique college town.
