As we’re all approaching the end of this semester, I am drawn to reflect on the experiences I’ve had during my first semester here at Carnegie Mellon as an international undergraduate student.
As a new member of the Tartan Student Fund, I was excited to engage in something novel and different from clubs of my high school. Tartan Student Fund was just that. The club consists of groups of team members working together to pitch various stocks of their choice to the entirety of the fund, with […]

‘Tis the season for Common Application. High school seniors everywhere are frantically applying to colleges and are all faced with one grappling question: “What do you want to do with your life?” Growing up, I was so sure I wanted to become a medical doctor, just like all of my uncles. I would go through […]
Majoring in business, I thought that my extracurricular activities should center mostly around my major and help me find my concentration.

After all the assignments and home works throughout the busy strenuous week we all lead, what could be better than a weekend to relax and explore our beautiful city? There’s just so much to do in Pittsburgh to make your weekend worthwhile.
Multiple exams, lack of sleep, and overwhelming amounts of stress pretty much summarize midterm week. Midterm week is an amazing part of the semester where you must finish two papers, study for multiple exams, and give a presentation within a few days’ time. What a blast!

Twas the time of the year, already seven weeks into the semester. Despite the unusually mild autumn, we are in the midst of the autumn season. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, with its comfortable weather, picturesque landscapes of the changing leaves (the type that one would need to resist the […]
What better way is there to unwind from a busy week than to attend a Penguins game with Tepper students? On Saturday, October 7th, around 10 undergraduate Tepper students and 2 faculty members attended the Penguins ice hockey game against the Nashville Predators in the PPG arena. This was an especially exciting game as the […]
From when we moved in on Aug. 19 through PlayFair on the 27th, Orientation week was a blast for incoming UBA students.
