This school, like every other, is what you

Aug 12 2010Psychology
This school, like every other, is what you make of it. There is plenty of fun to be had if you want to have it. Fun will not find you unless you make the effort to meet people and make new friends. People here are not your typical/generic college students, they are very unique and often strange. And that is such a good thing. People here will open your eyes to the world beyond what you've experienced.

CMU is the perfect school if you are

Jul 05 2010Biology
CMU is the perfect school if you are somewhat of a nerd and enjoy working hard. The academics are not impossible, but you will spend most of your time studying. Luckily, there are a lot of places to get academic help, and professors are very approachable. There is a great advising system and career center, and a lot of other resources for students. Most science, computer science and engineering majors don't party much and usually spend their weekend nights hanging out with friends, watching movies, playing games etc. Housing is okay, and thanks to the recent change in the campus dining vendor, the food can be good (though expensive).

Overall, I highly recommend CMU to motivated, slightly geeky/nerdy students. I'm very happy with my choice to attend Carnegie Mellon. I've made great friends and have learned more than I ever thought possible in one year.

CMU is a good school

CMU is a good school. BUT, you have no fun, and the work is sometimes not very challenging. Quite literally, there is little to no social scene at this school. College is meant to be a time of growing both in academics and social situations. Well, I was in quite a few clubs, and even with that the social scene was atrocious. I would recommend NOT to go to CMU if you wanna have one bit of fun in college.
