Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1991

Academics Rating

The workload is very high and the school never closes, even when it’s minus 20 degrees and snowing. In the Architecture Department, I had projects due on Sunday nights at 8pm which kept me working most weekends. Don’t go to Carnegie Mellon unless you want to work hard and be challenged. It was really tough but I loved every minute of it.

Former Student - Last Attended 2002

Academics Rating

The classes were good at Carnegie Mellon University and when I wanted to switch to an interdisciplinary major, the faculty was very helpful. I especially enjoyed working on the costume crew and other theatre courses and really liked my humanities teachers, they were great a challenging me to think about the issues up for discussion.
