接通下，是稍稍伙伴等太关怀的事体 — 在校生评价。
The professors here don’t care about their students. Sure, they all want
us to theoretically learn the material, but they don’t really try to
help. They think that a ‘C’ is okay to give to a hardworking student
because “it’s passing”, but they fail to realize what we’re all really
here for: TO GET JOBS. News flash! Getting a job is hard to do when your
GPA makes you look like an idiot.
You will learn so much by coming to CMU. You will leave knowing that
your time here was worth it, no matter what your GPA is, and no matter
what opportunities you are offered after.
The professors are all great and very qualified. Registration process
can be a bit stressful because you’re randomly assigned a time to
register and waitlists suck, but people forget to use their academic
advisers and they are incredibly helpful. Workload gets very heavy so
time management is crucial. The first few weeks of classes are light
then midterm season hits and it doesn’t really end until finals. Most
people study in Hunt or Wean library, and the school just put up some
new study spaces in the university extension. Other students study in
empty classrooms, which I like. I prefer to have more private rooms
(because classrooms are taken during the day), but the school doesn’t
have many of those.
CMU is a very unique place. There are numerous places to study (as so
many CMU students spend the majority of their time doing just that), but
the cold can discourage many from venturing anywhere but the closest
places. The athletic facilities are Ok, the library is really only used
to studying, and its really difficult to get a seat at most places
around lunchtime in the UC
Pittsburgh is a great college town. There’s shopping, dining,
recreation, parks, etc… but the weather usually shuts down most
people’s travel plans due to the sheer miserable-ness of getting
anywhere. Anything you need to buy is easily within range, and there’s
pretty much something for everyone if you take time off studying and go
I often like to go out to explore Pittsburgh, which is a beautiful city,
with my friends and you get to know the place better and experience what
life really is like for a college student. It’s not too urban like
downtown, but not too suburban. It is a very college town since many of
our neighbors are other universities.
What sucks is the lack of dining halls. The food plan is used at
different vendors on campus, and it’s difficult to find a spot to eat
once you have your food. The two best places to eat are The Exchange at
Posner Hall and Tartan Express, a recently added, school-sponsored food
哈尔l的The Exchange，还有Tartan Express，一个近日猛增的food truck。
I love the food around the area as there are many different options.
Deluca’s and Pamela’s are by far the best two diners I’ve been to in my
entire life. Those two places alone make Pittsburgh’s food rating five
stars for me. Pamela’s for pancakes and home fries. Deluca’s for omelets
and breakfast burritos.
Health & Safety 健康与平安
They provide escort services at night which is really great!
Their is no pressure to drink even though it is common practice at CMU.
I feel pretty safe on campus and all the incidents I’ve heard of
occurred within the community but off-campus. There are emergency phones
located on the outskirts of campus just in case and Pittsburgh is
actually considered one of the safest cities.
It really depends on what dorm you end up in, some are right on campus
(like Donner) and others are quite a trek (Rez on Fifth). Sizes and
whether or not you have AC/kitchen/etc.
Housing is rather expensive for the quality we get in return.
Depending on where you live will depend on your experience in Campus
housing. Overall, CMU needs to renovate some of the older dorms and
build more campus dorms as well. A lot of forms do not have AC and some
have extremely small rooms, but they are in good, safe locations.
Overall Experience 总体体验
Carnegie Mellon does a great job at offering various resources to
students, whether these resources be related to academics, professional
development, or well-being. I especially appreciate my school’s efforts
in promoting health these past two years.
I love this school. You get a great mix of career, academics, social
life, and city life. I think your experience here is what you make of
it. Sometimes, it can be a little stressful but that good times are
definitely worth it.
Carnegie Mellon is awesome, and there are a lot of great opportunities
to explore into whatever realm of education that you see fit.
Party Scene 高校派对
There are parties, but they usually suck (bad music, bad alcohol,
sometimes bad people), and they are constantly being shut down by the
campus police who apparently have nothing better to do. If you’re old
enough, you can go to bars, where they’ll have none of the
Parties are usually in houses, unless you bother to count frat house
parties, which will always suck to some degree. The best parties usually
turn out to be medium sized ones with people you know. The party scene
would have a better impact if it didn’t consistently suck and if campus
police didn’t shut down anything remotely fun-sounding.
CMU is not a school for parties. Most everyone spends their nights
studying or relaxing in dorms. Bus transportation is free but hardly
anyone goes out unless it’s the weekend.
Most parties are off-campus and hosted by members of group
organizations. These gatherings tend to be tailored to that particular
Parties are there if you want to go to them, and if it’s not a party
there’s just a group of people getting together and drinking. There are
a ton of bars around Pittsburgh but it’s really hard to get around if
you don’t have a car.
Student Life 学校生活
I’m in a sorority – which was totally unexpected by friends and family –
and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I personally love greek life and
am very grateful for all the people I’ve met through it. However, I do
recognize issues with some frats being too big and not having the best
brother/sisterhood. You don’t have to join greek life to have fun at
school, but if it’s something you’re at least considering or curious
about I definitely recommend that you go to some of the rush/pre-rush
events to get a feel for the community.
The UC just got renovated and this included the addition of a new gym
with fantastic cardio and weight lifting machines! There are a lot of
athletes around campus but no one really pays attention to the games.
There is great diversity at CMU and the students/faculty are very
CMU Greek Life is very different from other schools. Their is not the
typical stereotypes about frats, everyone in Greek life is very
inclusive of those not in Greek life. A lot of the social events are
mainly Greek though.
Not a lot of school spirit in terms of supporting the sports team. Their
usually are crowds for certain sports though (Football and Soccer). I
wish there were more athletic facilities on campus.
Recruiters are always on campus. Jobs are not given to you, but they are
not hard to find. You just have to be persistent and determined. I have
friends that have found internships every year they have been at CMU. We
have top companies from every industry on campus and at career fairs as
well. The alumni network is also very supportive. Many alumni come back
to recruit and they are always trying to give CMU students an edge. The
alumni network is a little small though compared with other top schools.
CMU will get you a job. Every graduate that I know has multiple job
offers and many are well above the average for their fields. It’s not
uncommon for a student to be picking from several 6 figure options.
We have a couple of big job fairs every year which invite big companies,
as well as a few networking events. If you’re looking for opportunities,
you will eventually find them.
