Carnegie Mellon academics keep the student body very busy but when we have free time, many of us like to watch or participate in activities or organizations on campus. Since there are so many things happening on CMU’s campus, it is easy to miss an activity that you would be interested in. Here are a few things on campus you may have missed but may be of interest to you:
Athletics: Our athletic program is phenomenal and this year, our teams are looking to break school records. Our football team is 7-2, CMU volleyball is 27-3, both of our men’s and women’s soccer teams are nationally ranked, CMU tennis is undefeated, and our men’s and women’s golf teams are unbelievably good. Now, our winter sports are about to start their season. Our swimming and diving team, our track team, and our men’s and women’s basketball teams are looking to continue building our reputation as a dynamic sports school. We even added a softball team to our list of varsity teams! For all game schedules, player statistics, and highlight footage, click here!
TNGL: Toyz Nation Gaming League is an organization that fosters diversity in STEM related fields by hosting “hackathons”, holding gaming tournaments, and connecting its members to tech companies like Intel, Google, and Facebook. Check this group out here if you want to learn more.
CMU Badminton Club: This club provides a free environment for players of all levels to come and play badminton. Players who wish to improve their skills by participating in tournaments will also have the chance to do so. The club provides equipment (shuttlecocks, nets) free of charge and offers racket rental, re-stringing and re-gripping services! Click here for more information!
CMU Cyphers: Do you like to freestyle? This group might be for you. Every Friday from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, this club provides a place for rappers and non-rappers alike to come together and develop their freestyle skills as well as other forms of verbal, artistic expression.

SPIRIT: A group that promotes a sense of fellowship and diversity within the Carnegie Mellon community by acting as a liaison between its members and the university. SPIRIT is involved in everything from Buggy (see below) to fashion shows. To learn more about SPIRIT, click here!
Buggy (Sweepstakes): An annually held race during Carnegie Mellon’s Spring Carnival in April. It is a competition in which teams build and race composite vehicles to promote hands on engineering, athleticism, school spirit and tradition. There are over 10 organizations that compete. Each organization is composed of different teams based on skill and athleticism. Ask around campus or go to cmubuggy.org for more information!
Movies in the UC: Nearly every weekend, AB Films screens movies in McConomy Auditorium in the Cohon University Center. The movies are free for CMU students with an ID and $3 for the public. Tickets can be purchased 30 minutes before each film show time at a table set up outside McConomy. To learn more about AB films, click here!
