About Turn Tartan Experience
The Turn Tartan Experience is designed to immerse you in all things Carnegie Mellon. You'll have the opportunity to hear from faculty, talk to current students, and ask any questions you may have about the life of a Tartan. Review session offerings below and be on the lookout for Fall 2024 registration!
Turn Tartan Experience helps prospective students get to know our campus, learn about academic and artistic opportunities, meet faculty and hear from current students about their Carnegie Mellon experience. Please see detailed schedules below for sessions and classes offered as part of the Fall 2023 experience.
*While Turn Tartan Experience does not have an overnight component, students will be able to sit in on specific classes and take advantage of departmental office hours on Monday, November 6. Students and families are required to find their own overnight accommodations.
