The weather might have been wet in January during the Pacific Northwest Networking Trip to Portland, OR and Seattle, WA sponsored by the Robert Day School of Economics and Finance at CMC. Nonetheless, it was also “raining” connections for the group of students that participated in the event, which was inaugurated in 2013 with a networking trip to Seattle.

A big benefit of enrollment at CMC is the opportunity to hear the amazing array of speakers (and subjects) featured at the Marion Miner Cook Athenaeum almost every day of every week.

But for Shivani Pandya ‘18 and four of her sophomore friends (Lauren Giurata ’18, Nisha Behrman ’18, Janine Ivy ’18 and Melissa Muller ’18), that benefit also presented a challenge.

For many graduating high school seniors, there is nothing quite like the feeling of exhilaration (and relief!) on being accepted into a college or university of their choice. And for college-bound students who have staked their hopes on Early Decision acceptance from a particular place of higher learning, the experience can be even more exciting.

Early decision is a common policy used in college admissions in the U.S. for admitting students to undergraduate programs in which candidates consider a certain institution to be their top choice.

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff:

Yesterday, I spent the day and evening with about forty students in my office, actively listening to their personal and shared experiences, deep concerns, and imaginative, constructive suggestions.

CMC Model UN Team

CMC’s Model United Nations (MUN) Team had some pretty big shoes to fill at this year’s TrojanMUN Conference held last weekend (Oct. 29-Nov. 1). After all, last year CMC’s MUN team ranked 6th in the nation. CMC’s MUN team also won the “Best Delegation” designation at TrojanMUN last year.

“We won Best Large Delegation, which is the highest delegation award that each conference gives out,” says CMC MUN team member, Naina Mullick ‘17  “Additionally, a number of delegates won individual awards for their performance in committee.”
