Young Alumni Featured in Real Life Story Series

The Real Life Story Series (formerly Show+Tell Story Series) brings young alumni with exciting and diverse experiences back to campus to tell their stories. From start-up successes to crushing failures (and their eventual turnaround), these stories give students the real truth about life after Carnegie Mellon.

Events, which take place in the Connan Room, University Center, are open to the university and greater Pittsburgh communities, and begin with an informal dessert reception at 6:30 p.m. Stories start at 7 p.m. All stories are filmed and available via iTunesU.
