This is life at CMU. CMU students are change makers, doers, artists, industry starters, disrupters, entrepreneurs, thinkers and leaders. They are also learning about themselves as humans, building relationships with each other, experiencing the ups and downs of life, carving paths for themselves on campus and in the world, and engaging in the CMU experience in unique and personal ways. Parents and family members are an important part of the Carnegie Mellon experience for our students. Whether you live across town or on the other side of the globe, there are many ways to stay connected with your student and our community. Here on the Carnegie Mellon University’s Student Affairs blog, we share stories and information about our students and campus community that are helpful and relevant to our CMU parents and families.
