The Quant Club at CMU holds an annual competition sponsored by Goldman Sachs called the Quantathon. As an aspiring computational finance student, I participated in the Quantathon this year with my friends Kunal Rajani (TSB ’22) and Vivek Rao (TSB ’21).
Last week (Feb. 1-2), I participated in my first-ever hackathon-style competition. Am I a bit late to the game? Sure. It seems like everyone in this university popped out of the womb as hackathon stars and fluent in three coding languages. However, it took a bit of time for Tepper to announce their take on […]
“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 […]
This post is not sponsored; I just really love these stationery products mentioned and would recommend to anyone who shares sentiments that I express in this post! I’m a visual learner. Techniques like color-coding, drawing diagrams, and being shown graphs help me cement information into place. Therefore, throughout high school and college, I have found […]
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. I’d intended to meet with him and a few professors since last spring, but I hadn’t reached […]
We’ve all been there: we get stuck in our ways and everything seems uninspiring, important, and insignificant. Despite going to a college that loves saying “my heart is in the work,” I fall into a rut all too often. At least for me, it often boils down to feeling like I’m re-living the same day […]
Although we’re three weeks into 2019, I still have a bit of “new year new me” spirit left in me. Maybe it’s because it’s syllabus week (as if such a thing exists at CMU). Maybe it’s Maybelline. In high school, I was much more organized. That fell off the tracks in college, especially last semester. […]
Winter break is over and school is about to start up very soon! But before the first day of spring semester I wanted to highlight the annual gingerbread house contest that was held back in December.
Learning outside of class via activities and events is as important as the learning we get within the four walls of our classrooms – something I learned during my Sophomore fall !
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 […]
