Carnegie Mellon University is a research institution founded by steel magnate Andrew Carnegie in 1900. STEM field majors account for the majority of students at CMU, followed by business and drama. CMU commits millions of dollars to its students through the Presidential Fellowships scholarship program and has been called a “New Ivy” by Newsweek. Carnegie Mellon University has been rated as the third Best College for Computer Science in America by Niche and #25 in National Universities by U.S. News & World Report.
It's expensive, but the culture and opportunities are top-notch for anyone willing to work hard and delve deep into their studies-whatever they may be. Sports aren't huge. Also, the plays and other performances are unbelievably outstanding.
Carnegie Mellon is an amazing university and provides endless opportunities to its students. The experiences one will find here as a first year are incredible and I would never trade this year for anything. Everything from the people to the majors to the clubs are so diverse that no matter who you are, you can most definitely find your place here.
