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.
A jam-packed, fast-and-furious four years. All programs are very passionate about what they do and their students show it through a commitment to a fairly rigorous courseload. Definitely time to get the well-rounded college experience, though.

A prestigious university that's strong in all departments, such as business, engineering, computer science, and the arts. Located in an up-and coming city, CMU is lively and entertaining for a college student looking for a small town feel. Academics are rigorous but extremely rewarding.
