Hi, I am a junior in high school and am interested in Carnegie Mellon. Would you mind me asking you a few questions about the campus?
Sure! What questions do you have?
Thanks! I have several.
Does Carnegie Mellon have a really great fine arts program?
What are the dorms like?
Do the prefessors teach the Freshman classes?
How many students are usually admitted into the Freshman class?
If you can answer these by Tuesday, that would be great. Thanks again!
I'll do my best -
I am not enrolled in the College of Fine Arts, but I do know that CMU's program is pretty highly ranked. I would suggest doing some research or asking someone else who is more knowledgeable on the subject...
The dorms vary in quality depending on how much you are willing to spend on housing. I would say it's similar to looking at apartments - if you're paying a lower rent, the apartment won't be as nice; if you're paying a higher rent, the apartment will be much nicer.
Professors do teach the Freshman classes. Because CMU is a small, private college, one of the benefits is that there are many professors in relation to the number of students.
I'm not sure how many students are admitted into the Freshman class... but I'm sure a quick google search would help! Also, try browsing the CMU Admissions site - http://admission.enrollment.cmu.edu/
Thanks so much for your time!! This will help in my research to have some student reviews. Best of luck in college!

To say that sports are popular at Carnegie Mellon would be a bold-faced lie. It's unfortunate that the students who are recruited to the school's 16 varsity sports practice daily without much recognition from the rest of the student body. It is hard to pinpoint exactly why interest in varsity sports is so low, especially because so much of the campus is active through club and intramural sports and athletic classes. The intramural leagues are actually quite competitive, and host playoffs in basketball, wallyball, badminton, tennis, indoor soccer, and more.
Nevertheless, it is considered to be a great turnout to sporting events if one-third of the seating is filled. Some of the more "popular" sports (meaning more than 3 dozen spectators show up) seem to coincidentally be the sports that throw a lot of off-campus parties. Coincidence?
