CMU Celebrates Today’s Women Making Tomorrow’s History

CMUwomen banner

Throughout the month of March, Carnegie Mellon University is commemorating Women's History Month by highlighting women and programs that are making a difference.

Our #CMUwomen have long resumes. Check out who we highlighted today: Lisa Murphy, a junior psychology major with a 3.78 GPA, tied an NCAA Division III record when she made 18 consecutive shots in November 2015. She is also currently third in the nation in points per game for the entire season. In the 2014-2015 season, she led the nation in field goal percentage and is on pace to repeat the accomplishment this season. Last week, she was named the National Player of the Week for Division III basketball for the second time, which is the first time a female has earned the award twice in the same year. When not playing basketball, Murphy spends her time as a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council and secretary of Psi Chi, the International Psychology Honor Society. She has interned with the Children's School at Carnegie Mellon, spent time as a summer camp aide at Life Changing Fitness Kids in Falls Church, Virginia, and volunteered for Special Olympics.
