“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 […]
The Tepper School of Business has retained VSA Partners as its new branding firm. Students from the economics department met with them to tell their stories of why they chose Carnegie Mellon and what the university means to them.

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 […]

The advent of a new year means an opportunity to become a better person and an opportunity to resolve to transform and move in a positive direction. In the light of this, resolutions are good to chart out a path to reflect on and indulge in whats important.
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 […]
Every year, the Student Dormitory Council (SDC) hosts the Almost Midnight Breakfast the night before reading day. Faculty and staff put on their serving caps and aprons to serve free all-you-care-to-eat breakfast food for hungry and stressed out students. The goal? Bring joy to finals week and allow students a time to relax and de-stress with food and […]
‘Tis the season for gingerbread men, holiday preparation, gift-giving…and finals. Most of us are wanting a fast-forward button that skips over the end of the semester and straight into winter break, but unfortunately, we must finish off strong regardless of whatever offers or admissions we may have that are waiting for us. Get a Chrome […]
For most people, Thanksgiving is their time off to return home to see family and eat their share of turkey and mashed potatoes at the dinner table. However, many international students just don’t have the luxury to do the same due to the many constraints that they face.
A diverse group of leaders composed of undergraduates, graduate students, alumni, and faculty members of the Carnegie Mellon community come together to combat campus issues and brainstorm new ways to enhance the CMU experience!
This past Thanksgiving weekend, the Carnegie Mellon Basketball team hosted their annual DoubleTree Invitational tournament. Chatham University, Baruch College, University of Mary Washington, and Carnegie Mellon University competed for first place.
