The 4th CMU Summit (April)

On April 25 and 26, 2015, we held the 4th CMU Summit on US-China Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

This year, we opened four panels: Information Technology, Finance & Capital Market, Energy, and Innovation & Entrepreneurship.

We invited entrepreneurs from well-known corporations, including AT&T, IBM Waston, Cisco, BNY Mellon, etc. We also invited distinguished scholars from universities to share their insights.

Ross Park Mall Free Shuttle (November & April)

In November 2014 and April 2015, we provided free shuttle service to Ross Park Mall for CMU students. Ross Park Mall is a shopping mall located in the north of Pittsburgh, hosting nearly 160 retailers including anchor stores such as JCPenney, Macy's, Nordstrom, and Sears. We collaborated with the mall to provide students with discounts. The shuttle service brought great convenience for students who didn't own cars or preferred group shopping. Departing in the morning and returning in the evening, the students had enough time to purchase whatever they wanted.

Spring Festival Gala (February)

In order to celebrate the Chinese Spring Festival, and to promote the communication between Chinese and western cultures, we held a Spring Festival Gala on Feb 22 in UC Rangos Hall.

It was the first time we used a WeChat official account as a means of promotion. Our articles received many likes and reposts, and attracted an audience of 550.

It was also the first time we painted the fence in front of Doherty Hall. Our members created a beautiful and appealing fence on a chilling snowy night. Many passers-by were attracted to our fence and curious about our event.

NBA Night (November)

In November 2014, we organized a trip to Cleveland to watch the game between Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks. We bought group tickets that were cheaper than the retail price, and provided round-trip transportation between Pittsburgh and Cleveland. Around 40 students participated in this event (the tickets were sold out in one night!); everybody was excited and crazy during that night. We also had the luck to witness Cleveland make its first nine three-point attempts, an NBA record for the most threes in a quarter without a miss!

We treasure this kind of moment shared with the students and we'll try to increase the number of tickets we can get next time, in Fall 2015.

Halloween Party (October)

In order to provide students around Pittsburgh with an opportunity to relax from homework and enjoy Halloween, CMU CSSA hosted a Halloween dress-up party at the Static Night Club on the night of October 31st. CMU CSSA cooperated with Static, reserved its entire second floor, and offered cheap tickets with a free drink. More than 150 students, mostly from CMU and Pitt, attended the event.

Dr. Xiaoliang Wei's Lecture (October)

Dr. Xiaoliang Wei gave an inspiring and exciting talk at CMU on October 7th. He used to be a teacher at the famous educational institute New Oriental, and is now CEO of SmartStudy, a start-up that just received an investment of 10.6 million dollars from Baidu, a giant search engine in China.

CSSA Orientation (August)

CMU CSSA organized its annual orientation for over 350 new Chinese students in the UC McConomy Auditorium. Representatives of the CMU Office of International Education (OIE), AT&T and the law office of Andrew Wood, LLC participated in our event, and delivered informative presentations to the new Chinese students. AT&T offered special discounts exclusively for CMU students, and 8 AT&T staff members helped new students to set up and active their mobile phones remotely after orientation. Light refreshment and drinks were provided to all attendees after the event.

Airport Pickup (August)

From August 4th to August 8th, CMU CSSA provided airport pickup service for around 200 incoming students.

We would like to express our thanks to the CSSA staff who stayed at the airport until midnight every day, and to the drivers who carried the incoming students to their residences from campus and even directly from the airport!
