GCS Release Showcase + Share Your Course Projects

Happy Last Day of Classes!

Well, this brings brand new meaning to the word "bittersweet," doesn't it? We should be eating burritos and harrassing you to get your projects out of Phys Comp. But things didn't work out that way.

We miss you so much but we are just so proud of how you have stood strong in the face of this crisis and supported each other. Congratulations on all that you have achieved and overcome this year. We will see you again.

IDeATe Student Directory

student-directory.pngLast year, the IDeATe Design for Learning students proposed a great idea: a student directory on IDeATe students are from all over the university, take many different types of classes, and all pretty proud of the fact that they're doing such interesting work at Carnegie Mellon. It would be great to be able to recognize each other and show others that this is part of their student experience. We're happy to announce that the directory is now live and has profiles and contact information for the students who have opted to contribute to it. Take a look and let us know at if you'd like to be included.
