Cèilidh - Carnegie Mellon University

Cèilidh Weekend – October 9-12, 2014 Updated!

This fall will mark the fifth year for the blended celebration of Homecoming and Family Weekend. Once again, the Office of Alumni Relations & Annual Giving and the Office of Orientation & First Year Programs are working closely on Cèilidh Weekend to create a celebration for the entire CMU community – students, parents, alumni, faculty, and staff.

Stay tuned to the website for schedule and registration information as it becomes available in early fall. While we are working on details now, a few weekend highlights will include:

  • Alumni Awards
  • Class of 1964 50th Reunion
  • Platinum Reunion (celebrating the classes of 1944, 1949, 1954, and 1959)
  • All Campus BBQ
  • Academic Meetings/Programs
  • Alumni Interest Group Receptions
  • And much, much more!

Cèilidh Weekend 2013 was the best-attended Cèilidh Weekend yet! 

Alumni, parents, students and friends enjoyed awards ceremonies, lectures, campus traditions like the chili cook-off, an exciting football game (which the Tartans won in double overtime), reunions, and the first President's Address from Dr. Subra Suresh.
