CMU graduates are ready to lead – The Morning Sun

This week, more than 2,000 will graduate from the current Central Michigan University Chebius and join the CMU Alumni family – a network of more than 235,000 individuals who live, learn and lead around the world.

This will be the university’s first indoor in-person opening ceremony since 2019, as loved ones gather at Mount Pleasant to celebrate. Three ceremonies will take place on Saturday, December 18th at the McGuirk Arena and a live broadcast of each concert will be available to those not attending.

As the 2021 class prepares to enter the labor market, many of them will begin working in positions they previously secured. Here are just a few stories about our alumni, who are fire up to take the next step in their careers and life journeys.

Profession: Business Strategy Analyst for Delta Airlines

Tips for Carnegie Mellon University students: Take advantage of the opportunities available to you as a student at Carnegie Mellon University. Engaging in an RSO that will not only pique your interest but will allow you to gain experience in the field of your choice. My participation in Alpha Kappa Psi, the fraternity of mixed professional business, is what allowed me to develop the skills I needed to get my internships. It was these same exercises that allowed me to gain valuable skills that I will use at Delta Airlines. Carnegie Mellon University is full of organizations that will help set you apart from other students and put you in a position to make your dreams come true.”
