  • Went here for a work thing. Enjoyed the campus and the buildings. Kids were super nice and you can see how enthused they are to attend this school. Very nice!  more »
  • We are looking at Pitt and Carnegie as College choices, both are situated next to each other and both are worth the time to park and walk around campus. Carnegie is unique and has a beautiful campus. ...  more »
  • This place has an amazing reputation in undergraduate and graduate studies. And the area is very very nice to visit.  more »

  • Awesome place, especially of you're a Comp Sci major. They offer a research program in Software Engineering called REUSE, look it up if you're interested!
  • Do people in the liberal arts deserve to make more money than Engineering students just because they go to CMU and places like this. Is there some kind of massive delusion that actually studying really hard and working over eighty hours Per week should deserve much less pay. Students in the humanities and arts are usually lazy and uptight and trying to hide the fact that they do not want to work very hard. I am surprised by the level of stupiditet going on in general in the entire country. The arrogance that people use liberal arts degrees to basically turn others who even cant afford to work two or three jobs and cant attend community College so these people can even assert some kind of superiority complex and constant social comparison because they got into this school is ridiculous. And what is the Big deal about art. There is enough. You really dont need a degree in art. Its not like something bad is going to happen if someone didnt know what they were doing. Its not like an artist is better than a nuclear power company employee. Who cant make mistakes at work. Does anyone get it. Plato is right about the allegory of a Cave. You dont need a degree to read a book and enjoy learning. You dont need some kind of validation of others that what you say has any meaning if someone else told you exactly what to say and you got some kind of grade you are therefore better than someone else. And you dont know what the sine of thirty degrees is all about yet you must be better because your bank account says so
  • In 1990 Carnegie Mellon U. appeared on PBS as students were working on robotics operating a pizza shop. Some former family friend's sent their daughter to CMU it was a big deal for them. Their daughter was a C average student with a portfolio who chose to study costume design at CMU for 4 years. I would much rather study robotics and would love to walk into a calzone shop and see robots in action making dough and assembling and baking the calzone. I don't care for the world my mother inhabits and those former family friends bug me what they do to improve their prestige and status [what a waste of time, honestly]. "Now Tommy you need to wear this costume for this play." The fabric needs to go here and not there and be this color. Why should I care. I don't like the humanities and art is not such a big deal to me that I'd like to NOT learn and figure out a single about science/technology. I think my mother is bored by the Hubble telescope. We don't really get along. Does anyone from that documentary remember the robotics project. I have no idea why engineering students are required to take humanities classes meanwhile the humanities students dont have to take a single challenging class
  • CMU is a fantastic school. I went there 40 years ago but come back to visit every year, and it just keeps getting better. Now, everyone will say that about their Alma Mater, but honestly, the level to which CMU improves year to year is on par with any of the top-rated schools. The education you get here is excellent, and will serve you well if you apply yourself. It is also high-stress, so this kind of education is not for the faint-of-heart, but when you survive long enough to graduate, there is NOTHING you can't do!
  • Went on a tour, the tour guides were very unfriendly, didnt tell us anything and the atmosphere did not feel friendly and welcoming, more so it felt stressful. Never been so unimpressed! The campus is okay though.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
