Learn Through Living
From Greek Life to Bagpipe Club to intramural sports, the Carnegie Mellon experience goes beyond academics. More than 150 student organizations offer you the opportunity to pursue old hobbies and explore new ones.
Carnegie Mellon students are encouraged to combine what's learned in the classroom with activities outside the classroom. One example: Buggy races. A Carnegie Mellon tradition, Buggy gives students the opportunity to design and build aerodynamic and cylindrical vehicles that compete on a campus road course during Spring Carnival.
Committed to diversity, Carnegie Mellon also offers students opportunities to connect with their peers through multicultural organizations like SPIRIT, an African-American awareness organization; cmuOUT, a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender group; and Hillel, a Jewish student organization.
The Carnegie Mellon experience is about giving you, the student, not only an unparalleled academic experience but also a home away from home, opportunities to explore new cultures, and friends you'll keep for a lifetime.
