The student Dormitory council has seven committees and they’re all pretty great. They are Booth, Buggy, Dining, Events, Funding, Housing and Student Life, and Publicity. The chairs of all committees meet with ExBoard once a week, Sundays at 5:00 PM in CUC 329. These meetings are open to the public.

Booth, one of the oldest and most distinct traditions at Carnegie Mellon, brings together teams of students to design and construct individual carnival booths. It is the mission of SDC to give students the chance to follow their curiosities and nurture their interests through this great CMU tradition. Joining the team, you will explore the depths of industrial design, game production, lighting design, sculpture, or any other form of creation that you chose to add. After eight months, during which we will move from designing to prototyping and finally to building, we will debut our one story booth during Spring Carnival, which takes place in mid-April. We’re excited to have the addition of your ideas, enthusiasm, and skills to the team! Booth meets on Sundays at 2:00 PM in Doherty 1212 (email to check the location). To join, email sdc+booth@andrew.cmu.edu
