Though I’m not in the School of Drama, I’ve starred in a wide range of theater productions. My resume features roles in Hamlet and As You Like It, adaptations of childhood favorites like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and more. Casting directors have been begging me for years to star in the new Batman movie, but I’m so committed to my Carnegie Mellon education that I’ve turned them all down.
“I know this seems like a scary commitment, but you need this.” I let the words sink in: I needed to dedicate 10.5 hours every week to an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Basically, my therapist wedged me between weekly therapy and hospitalization. Was I happy with myself? No. But routine comforted me. I felt like […]
This year, Carnegie Mellon University launched a new undergraduate business class called “Business Science”. A required class for first-year Tepper students, the course focuses on studying business through three distinct lenses: economics, operations research, and organizational behavior. I interviewed Professor Routledge, who teaches the class, about his new course. Where did the idea for […]
Below are pictures from Tuesday’s screenings at the Kenner Global Languages and Cultures Room of the final videos for the 82-284 Multicultural Pittsburgh class. Feel free to stop by the room when it’s available and the desk attendant and/or Prof. Caspar himself can help get you on the headsets!

Perhaps most common of all is the vision that all business students walk around wearing suits all day, keeping their business cards on hand, and, as one poster in Carnegie Mellon’s Overheard meme page so eloquently put it, preparing to […]
“If you want to increase your success rate, double your failure rate.” This quote looks nice in an inspirational tweet or illustrated in an Instagram photo, but truly embracing failure as a part of life is a whole different story, especially for someone who is not familiar with failure. Now, I’m not encouraging reckless behavior. “Doubling your failure rate” does […]
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 […]
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 […]
