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.
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, […]
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 […]
When one typically thinks of an undergraduate “business school,” several images often come to mind. 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 […]
When I came to CMU, I heard about this class, 15-112: Fundamentals of Programming and Computer Science. Infamous for its workload and the stress it generated, I believed that I would never take the class, even though it also enjoyed the title of one of the most useful classes in the University. Eventually, after nearly […]
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 […]
It was a regular Saturday morning in Pittsburgh. Students were making their way across each of the city’s campuses, laughing and talking with their friends, planning what they would be wearing for the Halloween parties coming up.
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 […]
In the first few months of their college experience, college freshmen experience a lot of change and freedom. For example, they live with friends, do everything by themselves, and escape their helicopter parents that are worried at home.
“Transitioning,” “adjusting,” “change”: much like the buzzwords “holistic” and “midterms,” “making the transition to college” is one of those phrases that brings along with it a lot more stress than it actually should. Contrary to my own expectations heading into my freshman year at CMU, I did not spend my first few days wandering around […]
Hello World! My name is Meet Wadhwa and I am an Undergraduate Business Administration student in the class of 2022 at the Tepper School of Business.
Back when I was a freshman, I would walk by the TOC and see everyone dressed professionally. I remember feeling terrible and asking myself, “Why aren’t you dressed up today? I went earlier this week and I went once last week but am I trying hard enough?”

From the encompass career fair right now and Tepper meet up networking session yesterday to the Technical Opportunities Conference (TOC) and many company […]
Students from undergraduate Business and Economics mingled outside the new Tepper building while the undergraduate Business advisors served up Millie’s ice cream and various student groups advertised their organizations to prospective members.
