Institutional formation

The Carnegie Technical Schools were founded in 1900 in Pittsburgh by the Scottish American industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who wrote the time-honored words "My heart is in the work", when he donated the funds to create the institution Carnegie's vision was to open a vocational training school for the sons and daughters of working-class Pittsburghers many of whom worked in his mills Carnegie was inspired for the design of his school by the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York founded by industrialist Charles Pratt in 1887 In 1912 the institution changed its name to Carnegie Institute of Technology CIT and began offering four-year degrees During this time, CIT consisted of four constituent schools: the School of Fine and Applied Arts, the School of Apprentices and Journeymen, the School of Science and Technology, and the Margaret Morrison Carnegie School for Women

The Mellon Institute of Industrial Research was founded in 1913 by brothers Andrew Mellon and Richard B Mellon in honor of their father, Thomas Mellon, the patriarch of the Mellon family The Institute began as a research organization which performed work for government and industry on contract and was initially established as a department within the University of Pittsburgh In 1927, the Mellon Institute incorporated as an independent nonprofit In 1938, the Mellon Institute's iconic building was completed and it moved to its new, and current, location on Fifth Avenue

In 1967, with support from Paul Mellon, Carnegie Tech merged with the Mellon Institute of Industrial Research to become Carnegie Mellon University Carnegie Mellon's coordinate women's college, the Margaret Morrison Carnegie College closed in 1973 and merged its academic programs with the rest of the university

The industrial research mission of the Mellon Institute survived the merger as the Carnegie Mellon Research Institute CMRI and continued doing work on contract to industry and government CMRI closed in 2001 and its programs were subsumed by other parts of the university or spun off into independent entities


The main campus in Pittsburgh as seen from the 36th floor of the Cathedral of Learning

Carnegie Mellon's 140-acre 57 ha main campus is three miles 48 km from downtown Pittsburgh, between Schenley Park and the Squirrel Hill, Shadyside, and Oakland neighborhoods Carnegie Mellon is bordered to the west by the campus of the University of Pittsburgh Carnegie Mellon owns 81 buildings in the Oakland and Squirrel Hill neighborhoods of Pittsburgh

For decades the center of student life on campus was "Skibo Hall", the University's student union Built in the 1950s, Skibo Hall's design was typical of Mid-Century Modern architecture, but was poorly equipped to deal with advances in computer and internet connectivity The original Skibo was razed in the summer of 1994 and replaced by a new student union that is fully wi-fi enabled Known as University Center, the building was dedicated in 1996 In 2014, Carnegie Mellon re-dedicated the University Center as the Cohon University Center in recognition of the eighth president of the university, Jared Cohon

A large grassy area known as "the Cut" forms the backbone of the campus, with a separate grassy area known as "the Mall" running perpendicular The Cut was formed by filling in a ravine hence the name with soil from a nearby hill that was leveled to build the College of Fine Arts building

The northwestern part of the campus home to Hamburg Hall, Newell-Simon Hall, Smith Hall, and Gates Hillman Complex was acquired from the United States Bureau of Mines in the 1980s

In 2006, Carnegie Mellon Trustee Jill Gansman Kraus donated the 80-foot 24 m-tall sculpture Walking to the Sky, which was placed the lawn facing Forbes Ave between the Cohon University Center and Warner Hall The sculpture was controversial for its placement, the general lack of input that the campus community had, and its aesthetic appeal

In April 2015, Carnegie Mellon University, in collaboration with Jones Lang LaSalle, announced the planning of a second office space structure, alongside the Robert Mehrabian Collaborative Innovation Center, an upscale and full-service hotel, and retail and dining development along Forbes Avenue This complex will connect to the Tepper Quadrangle, the Heinz College, the Tata Consultancy Services Building, and the Gates-Hillman Center to create an innovation corridor on the university campus The effort is intended to continue to attract major corporate partnerships to create opportunities in research, teaching, and employment with students and faculty

Campus architecture and design

The campus began to take shape in the Beaux-Arts architecture style of Henry Hornbostel, winner of the 1904 competition to design the original institution and later the founder of what is now the Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture

There was little change to the campus between the first and second World War A 1938 master plan by Githens and Keally suggested acquisition of new land along Forbes Avenue, but the plan was not fully implemented The period starting with the construction of the Graduate School of Industrial Administration building 1952 and ending with Wean Hall 1971 saw the institutional change from Carnegie Institute of Technology to Carnegie Mellon University New facilities were needed to respond to the University's growing national reputation in artificial intelligence, business, robotics and the arts In addition, an expanding student population resulted in a need for improved facilities for student life, athletics and libraries The campus finally expanded to Forbes Avenue from its original land along Schenley Park A ravine long known as "The Cut" was gradually filled in to campus level, joining "the Mall" as a major campus open space

Hamerschlag, Roberts, and Scott Halls are three of the teaching facilities of the College of Engineering

The buildings of this era reflect current attitudes toward architectural style The International Style, with its rejection of historical tradition and its emphases on functionalism and expression of structure, had been in vogue in urban settings since the 1930s It came late to the Carnegie campus because of the hiatus in building activity and a general reluctance among all institutions of higher education to abandon historical styles By the 1960s, it was seen as a way to accomplish the needed expansion and at the same time give the campus a new image Each building was a unique architectural statement that may have acknowledged the existing campus in its placement, but not in its form or materials

During the 1970s and 1980s, the tenure of University President Richard Cyert 1972–1990 witnessed a period of growth and development The research budget grew from roughly US$12 million annually in the early 1970s to more than US$110 million in the late 1980s The work of researchers in new fields like robotics and software engineering helped the university build on its reputation One example of this approach was the introduction of the university's "Andrew" computing network in the mid-1980s This pioneering project, which linked all computers and workstations on campus, set the standard for educational computing and established Carnegie Mellon as a leader in the use of technology in education and research On April 24, 1984, cmuedu, Carnegie Mellon's Internet domain became one of the first six edu domain names

In the 1990s and into the 2000s, Carnegie Mellon solidified its status among American universities, consistently ranking in the top 25 in the national US News & World Report rankings, and in the top 60 ranking 55th in 2013 amongst universities worldwide Carnegie Mellon is distinct in its interdisciplinary approach to research and education Through the establishment of programs and centers that are outside the limitations of departments or colleges, the university has established leadership in fields such as computational finance, information systems, cognitive sciences, management, arts management, product design, behavioral economics, energy science and economics, human-computer interaction, entertainment technology, and decision science Within the past two decades, the university has built a new university center Cohon University Center, theater and drama building Purnell Center, business school building Posner Hall, student union and several dormitories Baker Hall was renovated in the early 2000s decade, and new chemistry labs were established in Doherty Hall soon after Several computer science buildings, such as Newell Simon Hall, also were established, renovated or renamed in the early 2000s decade The university has most recently completed building the Gates Hillman Complex and continues renovating historic academic and residence halls

The Gates Hillman Complex, which houses the School of Computer Science

The Gates Hillman Complex, opened for occupancy on August 11, 2009, sits on a 56-acre 23 ha site on the university's West Campus, surrounded by Cyert Hall, the Purnell Center for the Arts, Doherty Hall, Newell-Simon Hall, Smith Hall, Hamburg Hall and the Robert Mehrabian Collaborative Innovation Center It contains 318 offices as well as labs, computer clusters, lecture halls, classrooms and a 255-seat auditorium The Gates Hillman Complex was made possible by a $20 million lead gift from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and an additional $10 million grant from the Henry L Hillman Foundation The Gates Hillman Complex and the Purnell Center for the Arts are connected by the Randy Pausch Memorial Footbridge

On April 15, 1997, Jared L Cohon, former dean of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, was elected president by Carnegie Mellon's Board of Trustees During Cohon's presidency, Carnegie Mellon continued its trajectory of innovation and growth His strategic plan aimed to leverage the University's strengths to benefit society in the areas of biotechnology and life sciences, information and security technology, environmental science and practices, the fine arts and humanities, and business and public policy In 2006, following negotiations between President Cohon and South Australian Premier Mike Rann, CMU opened a campus of the Heinz College in the historic Torrens Building in Adelaide, Australia President Cohon's term ended on June 30, 2013, after which he returned to the faculty at Carnegie Mellon

On July 1, 2003, Carnegie Mellon launched "Insp!re Innovation", a $1 billion comprehensive fundraising campaign Half of the campaign goal is intended for the endowment to provide long-lasting support for faculty, students and breakthrough innovations The campaign brought in a total of $119 billion, with $5785 million going toward Carnegie Mellon's endowment It also enabled the university to establish 31 endowed professorships, 97 endowed fellowships and 250 endowed scholarships On September 7, 2011, William S Dietrich II, the former chairman of Dietrich Industries, Inc, a subsidiary of Worthington Industries, Inc, pledged a gift of $265 million, effective on October 6, 2011, upon his death In response to this gift, Carnegie Mellon renamed the College of Humanities of Social Sciences as the Marianna Brown Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences after William Dietrich's mother

New York's Mayor Michael R Bloomberg, and New York University's President John Sexton on April 23, 2012, announced a historic agreement between New York City, New York's MTA, and a consortium of world-class academic institutions, and private technology companies, that will lead to the creation in New York of a Center for Urban Science and Progress CUSP The Center for Urban Science and Progress CUSP is an applied science research institute which will be a partnership of top institutions from around the globe, led by New York University with a consortium of world-class universities including: The University of Warwick, Carnegie Mellon University, the City University of New York, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and the University of Toronto

Main article: Carnegie Mellon University traditions The Fence
  • The Fence – In the early days of Carnegie Tech, there was a single bridge which connected Margaret Morrison Women's College with the Carnegie Institute of Technology The bridge was a meeting place for students In 1916, the bridge was taken down and the university filled in the area The administration built a wooden fence as a new meeting place The students did not understand why anyone would want to meet at a fence Administration was about to give up and tear it down but that night a fraternity, as a prank, painted the entire fence advertising a fraternity party Ever since, painting the Fence has been a Carnegie Mellon tradition The Fence at Carnegie Mellon lies at the center of campus, in the area known as "the Cut" Students guard the fence 24 hours a day, and, as long as two vigils are maintained, no other student may "take" the fence The fence can then be painted by the group that has it, but only between midnight and 6 am Only hand brushes may be used; the use of spray paint or paint rollers is considered vandalism and results in a fine The previous paint cannot be stripped, and each new painting adds a new layer The original wooden fence finally collapsed in the 1990s due to the weight from over 1' of surrounding paint, and was immediately replaced with an identical one manufactured from concrete Today the fence is considered "the world's most painted object," by the Guinness Book of World Records
  • Spring Carnival – Usually held in April, Spring Carnival is the biggest event of the school year In addition to classic carnival attractions, the Spring Carnival features the "Buggy Sweepstakes" and "Booth" a competition between various organizations to build small, elaborate booths based on a theme chosen each year
Two pushers exchange the buggy for Kappa Delta Rho on the first hill of Sweepstakes
  • Buggy Races – Buggy, officially called Sweepstakes, is a race around Schenley Park It can be thought of as a relay race with five runners, using the buggy vehicle as the baton Entrants submit a small, usually torpedo-shaped, vehicle that is pushed uphill and then allowed to roll downhill The vehicles are unpowered, including the prohibition of such energy-storing devices as flywheels They are, however, steered by a driver who is usually a petite female student lying prone, arms stretched forward to steer via a turning mechanism Space is so tight inside the buggies that the drivers usually cannot change position beyond turning their heads
A Mobot competing in the annual Mobot challenge
  • Mobot – "Mobot,' a portmanteau for "mobile robot," is an annual competition at Carnegie Mellon that made its debut in 1994 In this event, robots try autonomously to pass through gates, in order, and reach the finish line There is a white line on the pavement connecting the gates, and the line is normally used to find the gates, though it is not mandated by the rules that the robots follow the line
  • Bagpipers – As one of only a handful of colleges offering a bachelor's degree in bagpipe music and the only to offer a Masters, Carnegie Mellon University's Pipes and Drums features the sounds of Scottish bagpipes and performs at University events Director of the Pipes and Drums is champion piper Andrew Carlisle from Northern Ireland, a highly decorated solo piper and longtime member of nine times World Pipe Band Champions Field Marshal Montgomery The ensemble actively competes at Highland Games in Grade Three in the Eastern United States
  • The Kiltie Band- Carnegie Mellon's Kiltie Band, dressed in full Scottish regalia including kilts and knee socks, performs during every home football game
  • Autographing the Green Room – Seniors in the College of Fine Arts sign the Green Room's walls and ceilings before leaving the university Supposedly, Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter broke university tradition by signing the Green Room during her freshman year With the construction of the Purnell Center in 1998 the School of Drama no longer occupied the old Green Room, so this tradition has gone away


Carnegie Mellon offers conventional housing for its students through single-gender, coeducational, and special interest options Students can choose from a variety of housing options The three options for first-year students are standard, prime, and apartment-style living Standard is a typical college dormitory setting, a long hallway with a series of double two people to a room Prime offers more privacy through suite-style rooms Apartment-style living is available through the Residence on Fifth and Shirley apartments Upperclassmen have additional options for housing which include town houses and a larger variety of one or two bedroom apartments There are 20 residential buildings on campus and five off campus in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh

First-year students are assigned to the dedicated first-year residence halls on campus including: Morewood E-Tower, Residence on Fifth, Shirley Apartments, as well as Boss, Donner, Hamerschlag, McGill, Mudge, Scobell, and Stever houses Approximately a third of upperclassmen choose to continue living on campus through university housing Options for upperclassmen include: Morewood Gardens, West Wing, Doherty, Fairfax, Margaret Morrison, Neville, Shady Oak, Shirley, and Woodlawn Apartments as well as Henderson, Resnik, Roselawn, Spirit, Tech, Webster, and Welch houses

Fraternities and sororities

Main article: Fraternities and sororities at Carnegie Mellon University

The Greek tradition at Carnegie Mellon University began over 100 years ago with the founding of the first fraternity on campus, Theta Xi, in 1912 The Panhellenic sorority community was founded in 1945, by Chi Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Kappa Kappa Gamma The Chi Omega chapter at Carnegie Mellon transformed into an independent sorority, Zeta Psi Sigma, and has since become Alpha Chi Omega There is one Asian American interest sorority – alpha Kappa Delta Phi colony, and one Asian American interest fraternity – Lambda Phi Epsilon

Currently, Carnegie Mellon University has thirteen active fraternities: Alpha Epsilon Pi, Alpha Sigma Phi, Delta Tau Delta, Kappa Sigma, Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Sigma Tau Gamma, Delta Upsilon colony, Phi Delta Theta, and Lambda Phi Epsilon

In addition to participating in campus traditions such as Buggy and Booth, the fraternities and sororities hold an annual fundraiser called Greek Sing, one of the largest Greek events of the year Each year, the organizations vote on a cause to support and raise money through ticket sales, ad sales, corporate sponsorships and donations Each organization performs a 13-minute-long original show or a rendition of a popular show In Spring 2010, Greek Sing raised over $42,000 for St Jude Children's Research
