CMU Athletics

Victory celebrations, grueling practices, countless bus trips, team-building meals — Carnegie Mellon University Athletics give student-athletes much more than four seasons of memories.

They inspire treasured bonds that expand beyond their final season and impart lifelong lessons of teamwork, responsibility, commitment and leadership.

CMU student-athletes hone their bodies and minds to excel both on and off the field, court, pool, course or track as they balance innovative coursework with extensive travel schedules and preparations for tough match ups.
