For a final project for a class, I was instructed to give a ~ 5-minute inspirational speech for upcoming freshmen. I reflected upon this incident from elementary school and how the meaning hit me almost a decade later. After giving that presentation, I felt inspired to turn it into a webcomic.

The GBA, Tepper’s student government body, has the mission to enhance the student experience at Tepper while fostering the program’s unique culture. As the outgoing GBA VP, it was my final duty to run the […]
Never has a single word been capable of frightening so many students across the nation, but a particular group are more terrified of this word than anyone else: freshmen.
I have only been in Pittsburgh for 4 months, but this is now my home! I stayed in the city during the Thanksgiving break and explored my new home. If you’re staying “home” for the holidays, or have family visiting during the next few weeks, below I put together a friendly list of (some) things […]
In high school, I believed that I needed to attend the college that would teach me the most, the one that would provide me with the material necessary for whatever career path I chose. Similarly, I used to dismiss soft skills, believing that those who believed in such strengths could only pretend to accomplish work […]
Hold onto your seats because the Tepper Staff Committee is hosting its first annual Gingerbread House Making Contest!
When I came to CMU, I heard about this class, 15-112: Fundamentals of Programming and Computer Science. Infamous for its workload and the stress it generated, I believed that I would never take the class, even though it also enjoyed the title of one of the most useful classes in the University. Eventually, after nearly […]

My first mini at Tepper felt like a whirlwind. One of my challenges at the start of business school was learning to […]
Like many people who grew up in the States, I grew up watching Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Although I do not have clear memories of specific episodes, I remember the calmness and serenity of his voice and his neighborhood. This past August, I learned that the WQED station near my residence was where my childhood show […]
Last weekend was the Diversity Weekend at Tepper. My favorite event! Exactly a year earlier, I was an attendee still not sure whether an MBA was right for me. A Tepper student guided me through school during the Friday social event; Dean Dammon presented during the dinner on Saturday; and Leanne Meyer and Jarred Lazear provided […]
Let’s face it – a full time MBA at Tepper is a lot of work! Balancing classes, homework, recruiting work, networking events and case competitions takes a toll on you. However, Tepper also knows how to take care of you! The Graduate Business Association – Tepper’s administrative student body – recently hosted an entire week […]

One of the Tepper Ph.D. students’ more recent traditions: Hallo-Wine! Combining Halloween hijinx with wine tasting. Tons of fun and some great costumes this year too!
As the winter begins to brew, many students across campus are beginning to get sick. The cold weather isn’t the reason though! Although many people think the cold is the prime influence, the cold just allows germs to thrive and replicate in that environment. That is why it is very important to bundle up, get vaccinated, and eat right.
