Last month, I had the exciting opportunity to host two students for Celebration of Diversity Weekend. When I was a prospective student, I also visited CMU through these weekend programs, which they have at several times throughout the year. I was able to tour the campus, talk to faculty and students, attend a class, live in […]
“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!
One of the most important parts of college, melding together academics and student life, is the clubs you join during your time there. Whether it be a club sport (from running to badminton to fencing to table tennis), a cultural affinity club (from ASA to SALSA to SPIRIT), a common interest club (from parkour to […]
Amidst the cold, snowy winter and the numerous welcome back events designed to divert and distract from this harsh January weather, a new semester has started at CMU. Along with it, of course, is the fact that all 1,572 of my fellow freshman and I have now officially got an entire semester of college under […]
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.

The funny thing about the universe is that sometimes, just sometimes, you get exactly what you want right when you need it the most. As many a first-year collegiette can probably relate, what I had been longing for more than anything during all of last week was to come home to a lovingly cooked meal, […]
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.
It’s crazy how fast time flies by, and especially how it flies by while campus gets preoccupied by classes, extracurriculars, and socializing. It’s already been a week since Pittsburgh was struck by the tragic act of hate claiming 11 beautiful lives. While the many in the community are still taking things in, it was really […]
There’s nothing quite like walking back to your dorm room after a late night lecture, study session, or review session that makes you feel like you’ve really, truly made it to college. And there’s nothing quite like walking across the Randy Pausch Bridge after dark that makes you feel like you’ve really, truly made it […]
