All my professors have been very smart and care a lot about their students, however, not all have been great teachers. 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.

Carnegie Mellon University is a truly diverse community with highly intelligent people who strive to achieve realistic goals that enhance the quality of life. The campus is beautiful and peaceful located near other universities and a city. Great professors and lots of opportunities for extra help. Awesome student life activities. Various housing opportunities on and off campus. Truly a school that you will be proud to call your own.

Carnegie Mellon is a great place, full of really talented and smart MIT rejects. It's very nonstop and you need good timemanaging skills. You meet a lot of people and will learn a lot about yourself.

Carnegie Mellon is a great school, and it will only get better as time goes on because it is uniquely suited for educating the 21st century worker. Also, you can even create your own major to help you find your career path. I give it a 4/5 star rating though because classes can be really tough, and you feel overwhelmed. However, that also pushes you to learn more. Not only that, you can easily make friends who are very willing to help you with your assignments. The advisors here are helpful to a certain degree. Like any college, this school has good and bad professors. You just learn from upperclassmen which professor's class you should take.

I love this school. 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.

Carnegie Mellon is a champion in the academics and no doubt anyone who comes here will be challenged to their limit. As I sit in class I'm sitting among kids who code apps in their free time, run their own businesses, or build robots for fun. You cannot find this kind of enthusiasm anywhere else for academics!

I love the focus on community at CMU and the strength of the programs. Great University. Wonderful administrative and academic staff. My application and audition experience was positive. They have a great preparatory process for incoming freshman.

Carnegie Mellon has a multitude of opportunities for almost every student. Challenging environment, support if you seek it and use it, and lots of student activities to join. Any idea you have or thing you want to pursue, you likely can. However, their CAPS program requires a complete overhaul, as everyone on campus knows that if you need actual help, you find care elsewhere.

Carnegie Mellon truly knows how to push all their students. I am excited to attend this university and pursue an education with one of the best set design colleges in the country!

Carnegie Mellon has great campus, dorm and the professors are absolutely dedicated and top class. I like the professors the best, they helped me even in off times and are really good at replying to emails. In addition, the on campus wi fi is excellent, even in the middle of the field, I am able to get 20 mbps of wi fi. The buildings are also very high tech and comfortable, especially the Gates center.
