Carnival West in action!

CMU says "thanks!" to all of the students, alumni, family and friends who came out to the Silicon Valley campus April 12 — some for the very first time — to celebrate Carnival West while our colleagues at the main campus marked the 100th year of Spring Carnival traditions in Pittsburgh. Now in its fourth year in California, Carnival West has developed its own traditions, including the very popular Lego Buggy Racing and an annual Egg Drop Challenge.

SV Campus Director Bob Iannucci carefully monitors the finish line for Lego Buggy Races:
