Family Weekend/Scotty Saturday 2017

CMU celebrated Family Weekend Oct. 13-Oct. 15, including the second annual Scotty Saturday on Oct. 14.

Family weekend annually brings students, their families and friends together to experience the vibrancy of CMU's campus through a variety of events, academic programming and open houses. On Saturday, the Tartan football team played Geneva College at CMU's Gesling Stadium.

Scotty Saturday's signature event, the Festival on Scotty Saturday included CMU performances, a marketplace, Tartan swag, and arts and crafts.

The theme of Spring Carnival also was announced during the event and is "Myths and Legends."

Hannah Nourie, student body vice president for organizations, said Scotty Saturday is a celebration of what makes the CMU community so special.

"This event is truly in the spirit of Carnegie Mellon," Nourie said. "It's a combination of our interdisciplinary spirit and showcases our diverse student body interests and passions."
