As we’re all approaching the end of this semester, I am drawn to reflect on the experiences I’ve had during my first semester here at Carnegie Mellon as an international undergraduate student.
As a new member of the Tartan Student Fund, I was excited to engage in something novel and different from clubs of my high school. Tartan Student Fund was just that. The club consists of groups of team members working together to pitch various stocks of their choice to the entirety of the fund, with […]
‘Tis the season for Common Application. High school seniors everywhere are frantically applying to colleges and are all faced with one grappling question: “What do you want to do with your life?” Growing up, I was so sure I wanted to become a medical doctor, just like all of my uncles. I would go through […]
One of the Tepper PhD student’s more recent traditions: Hallo-Wine! Combining Halloween hi-jinx with wine tasting. Tons of fun!
Congratulations to the CMU INFORMS Student Chapter for winning the INFORMS 2017 Student Chapter Annual Magna cum laude Award!
Mental health is a daunting topic yet something I am passionate about. In the spring semester, CMU put up big posters with prompts such as “CMU Stress Culture Doesn’t Exist. Thoughts?” where students could put their thoughts. Additionally, former president Subra Suresh had talked about expanding Counseling and Psychological Services, CaPS, so that it is […]
A perspective on diversity weekend 2016, from class of 2019 MBA candidate Ben Strickhouser: I was lucky enough to be invited to attend Diversity Weekend because of my military service in the U.S. Navy. Diversity Weekend was my first visit to Tepper. At this point in my MBA search I had already visited all […]
Partners Club celebrated the end of Mini 1 by taking boys, babes and babies on Pittsburgh’s land and water tour. The tour takes place aboard a cute ducky boat/bus that can travel not only on the road, but also in the river. The tour was followed by a happy (and hearty) hour downtown and students […]
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 […]
I started to feel that college was limiting my capability to exercise. With the load of work and the constant press for time, it seemed like a luxury to exercise and still have enough energy to go through the day.
Multiple exams, lack of sleep, and overwhelming amounts of stress pretty much summarize midterm week. Midterm week is an amazing part of the semester where you must finish two papers, study for multiple exams, and give a presentation within a few days’ time. What a blast! Excuse my sarcasm but midterm week really is demanding. […]
Twas the time of the year, already seven weeks into the semester. Despite the unusually mild autumn, we are in the midst of the autumn season. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, with its comfortable weather, picturesque landscapes of the changing leaves (the type that one would need to resist the […]
What better way is there to unwind from a busy week than to attend a Penguins game with Tepper students? On Saturday, October 7th, around 10 undergraduate Tepper students and 2 faculty members attended the Penguins ice hockey game against the Nashville Predators in the PPG arena. This was an especially exciting game as the […]
In early September, there was the annual Carnegie Mellon University Activities Fair. The fair this year was on the cut, and with the 280+ organizations present plus all the attendees there, it was a sight.
From when we moved in on Aug. 19 through PlayFair on the 27th, Orientation week was a blast for incoming UBA students.
