Carnegie Mellon hosts Marhaba Tartans for newly admitted students
DOHA, QATAR: Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q), a Qatar Foundation partner university, welcomed newly admitted students at the Marhaba Tartans event.
Each year, CMU-Q hosts the admitted students to learn more about the university, including academic programs and student experience. This is the first time Marhaba Tartans has been in-person since 2019, and the sessions were also live-streamed for those who could not attend.
Michael Trick, dean of CMU-Q, noted that admission to the CMU-Q Class of 2026 was exceptionally competitive. “Students, you are among a very select group, and I want to congratulate each and every one of you. You have worked hard in high school, you have shown us that you are curious, driven and creative. You have earned your place in the Class of 2026.”
In 2022, application numbers rose by 17%, with more than 1600 students vying for 115 spaces in the first-year class. The admitted class includes many students who have won notable national awards, and a number are considered among the best in their respective countries. The admitted class includes students from 105 high schools in 43 countries.
