Dear Future Self, I wanted to recap the experience of attending classes in unique environments, namely DC and San Jose. You arrive to a previously unknown place and are subsequently surrounded by all the familiar faces that you’ve come to know over the past few months. Your cohort and you have bonded in a way […]
407 students. 6 colleges. 74 projects. 24 hours. Welcome to TartanHacks. This past weekend, CMU ScottyLabs hosted TartanHacks – one of CMU’s largest hackathons. ScottyLabs is a club on-campus devoted to helping students learn about and explore interesting topics in technology. They organize educational events, workshops, community activities, as well as TartanHacks throughout the year. […]
The Quant Club at CMU holds an annual competition sponsored by Goldman Sachs called the Quantathon. As an aspiring computational finance student, I participated in the Quantathon this year with my friends Kunal Rajani (TSB ’22) and Vivek Rao (TSB ’21).
“Carnegie Leadership Week”- a full week where you can grow as a leader, meet with your community, and learn from the experiences of alumni and peer. Cherry on top: free food, friends and loads of fun!
This post is not sponsored; I just really love these stationery products mentioned and would recommend to anyone who shares sentiments that I express in this post! I’m a visual learner. Techniques like color-coding, drawing diagrams, and being shown graphs help me cement information into place. Therefore, throughout high school and college, I have found […]
Today, I stopped by a former professor’s office to ask if he wanted to meet for coffee. Immediately, he responded affirmatively, and we spent the next half hour enjoying the caffeinated warmth, which combatted the numbing cold outside. I’d intended to meet with him and a few professors since last spring, but I hadn’t reached […]
❄ Arctic temperatures in Pittsburgh and no lectures for the day means I get to catch up on recruiting, homework, and of course – blogging. ❄ You may have read my classmate’s, David Baars, blog about the Business & Technology club (B&T) trek to Silicon Valley (if you haven’t, you can find it here) back in the fall […]
Winter break is over and school is about to start up very soon! But before the first day of spring semester I wanted to highlight the annual gingerbread house contest that was held back in December.
Learning outside of class via activities and events is as important as the learning we get within the four walls of our classrooms – something I learned during my Sophomore fall !
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.
Tepper’s MBA program held elections for the new President and Vice President of the Graduate Business Association (GBA) last month. 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 […]
