What is Summit?

Bhangra? Glass Blowing? Balloon Animal Making? Archery?

SUMMIT is a three day program at the end of winter break. It’s a chance for students to share and explore new skills and hobbies around Carnegie Mellon University and the Greater Pittsburgh Area. You may not have the time to explore during the school year so this is your chance! Check out courses and photos from past years to get a better idea about what you'll experience!
