CMU Swim & Dive Team
The Carnegie Mellon Swimming and Diving team is an incredibly driven group of student athletes. We compete in the UAA conference, one of the most competitive conferences in Division III. Day in and day out, we push ourselves to new heights in the pool, gym, and classroom. Our history of academic excellence is complemented by a history of success in the pool. The Tartans’ record boasts undefeated seasons, top performances at conference championships, and incredible swims at the national level. We live by our unofficial slogan “It's a great day to be a Tartan” (#GDTBAT).
Every year before spring semester, we have the privilege to dedicate a week and a half to just swimming. With no classes, exams, or homework to distract us, we have a unique opportunity to truly puts our hearts in the work. Traveling and training as a team allows us to not only capitalize on our individual strengths, but come together and bond as a team.
While the trip has immense benefits for each of us, it carries a cost of almost $900 per swimmer. We need your help to rein in this cost, and by donating, your contributions are making it possible for every team member to take part.
Our dedication to our sport is unmatched, and every team member wants to perform at his or her best. We are full-time students and full-time athletes throughout the majority of our season, so this brief window in January allows us the unique opportunity to improve in ways unattainable during the academic year. Contributing to this initiative will help us all reach our goals at the end of the season and enable us to best represent a program and institution that we are so proud to represent
