The Gathering-Silicon Valley Campus - Carnegie Mellon University

The Gathering

In addition to Orientation, both local and remote students are required to return to Silicon Valley for an all-class gathering.  The Gathering is designed to bring students together to (re)connect and actively review and reflect on issues in the industry. The 1-1.5 day schedule will feature a number of workshops and teambuilders, an engaging panel discussion, opportunities to reevaluate and recharge, and more!

  • January Gathering: This Gathering is specifically geared to 2nd year part-time Software Engineering students, 1st year full-time Software Engineering students.  The theme for this Gathering is 'Organizational Change and Change in the Industry'.
  • Summer Gathering: Geared for 1st year part-time Software Engineering students, 1st year full-time Software Engineering and Software Management students, and 1st year part-time Software Management students, this Gathering will focus on 'Improvisation and Creativity'.
