Tartans are naturally bold, collaborative, curious and passionate. It's no wonder that CMU offers a great breadth of academic, athletic and social opportunities for students.

Follow our Tartan Ambassadors on a virtual tour through campus with a series of videos, exploring a few ways we support your academic journey. You can also find out answers to commonly asked student questions, directly from our Tartans
