Connect with All Kinds of Tartans

Engage with us on campus or wherever you are in the world.

We get it. One of the best things about a campus visit is meeting new people in-person and that's just not always possible. That's why we also offer online opportunities for you to meet up with other Tartans including students, faculty and admission staff.

Serious Fun for the Playful Kind

Painting the Fence is one of Carnegie Mellon's most beloved traditions. The Fence sits in the middle of campus and acts as a billboard for student groups. Traditionally, the Fence must only be painted between midnight and sunrise, in its entirety, using only paintbrushes. Want to keep the message up longer? Two students keep watch around the clock or they risk another group staking their claim!
