Students from the economics department met with them to tell their stories of why they chose Carnegie Mellon and what the university means to them. The senior members of the VSA strategy team learned that students come here from all over the world […]
Of CMU’s various schools, each major has a specific guideline of classes, especially for freshmen, to enroll in. As a Tepper student, I have Business Computing, Principles of Macroeconomics, and Multivariate Analysis. For one of my free class spaces, I decided to take 15-112, the infamous introductory programming course. To my slight surprise, it’s been […]
One of my biggest regrets freshman year was not leaving my comfort zone more. I often pushed myself too much physically and mentally. Ultimately, this caused me to feel as though I almost wasted my first year. Luckily, the new year calls for a new school year, thus a new beginning. My roommate invited me […]
Start out the new year by doing something new. Whether it’s working out more or procrastinate less, how about explore more? This month I’d like to start the year featuring one of my new favorite cafes. You might know of it from its satellite location right on campus at the third floor of the Gates […]

What better way to start off the new semester than with some pastries and conversation? Welcome back everyone and good luck with your classes!
You wake up to a beautiful Sunday morning and reach for your phone to check your messages from last night’s shenanigans. Suddenly, you’re gripped by a familiar, almost nostalgic, terror: the terror of realizing that you have again waited till the last minute to do your homework for your Tepper Part-Time Online Hybrid MBA. […]
Tepper alumni, faculty and current Ph.D. students attended the 2018 AEA/ASSA (American Economic Association/Allied Social Science Association) Annual Meeting, which took place in Philadelphia this year. We had a great alumni turnout at this year’s ASSA/AEA 2018 Tepper Reception!
Now that I’m 1/8th of the way through and absolutely a college veteran, I want to recollect on my classes and experiences going through the first half of the first year. I took five classes this semester; Global Business, Principles of Microeconomics, Differential and Integral Calculus, Interpretation and Argument, and Introduction to Philosophy. Funnily enough, none […]
Every year, the Student Dormitory Council (SDC) hosts the Almost Midnight Breakfast the night before reading day. Faculty and staff put on their serving caps and aprons to serve free all-you-care-to-eat breakfast food for hungry and stressed out students. The goal? Bring joy to finals week and allow students a time to relax and de-stress with food and […]
‘Tis the season for gingerbread men, holiday preparation, gift-giving…and finals. Most of us are wanting a fast-forward button that skips over the end of the semester and straight into winter break, but unfortunately, we must finish off strong regardless of whatever offers or admissions we may have that are waiting for us. Get a Chrome […]
