CMU's Academic Senate is the university’s primary policy-making body for a wide range of issues involving academic life at CMU. Much of the work of the senate takes place through an elaborate network of... Continue Reading →

PROGRAM BOARD PT. 2

Last year as a freshman I got involved with this organization early on and fell in love with it. Read last year's blog here.

I not going to lie I wasn't too 'fired up' for a history class but now that I am just weeks away from completing the course I can say that it was definitely beneficial (I guess the advisors know what they're doing). The course was very similar to the 'American History' class we all took... Continue Reading →
