Thousands of students, alumni, faculty, staff, children and parents visited Carnegie Mellon "To Be a Kid Again" during our annual spring carnival, April 15-17.
The ECE students on the committee who brought this year's childhood festival to life were junior Divya Jesuraj (Assistant Chair and Treasurer), graduate student Fred Merkle (Midway Co-Chair), sophomore Chris Marshall (AB Tech Co-Chair), and senior Matt Theisz (Telecom Chair). They planned an eclectic schedule which mixed familiar campus traditions — the Kiltie Band, buggy races, booths, and Scotch 'N Soda theater — with today's music, games, and fireworks. Meet one of the key players from the committee:
Funnel Cakes! And the booths — I loved Sig Ep Street, but everything else was cute too.
About 4-5 hours a week. Plus ALL of carnival 4/9 — 4/18.
ECE Professors David Greve and Ed Schlesinger — "They made me realize my potential this semester as a Hardware Design Engineer. They provided laughs and guidance and insight and among all this [carnival] work it was great having something else that took up more time."
