The Thistle is Carnegie Mellon University's official yearbook.


The Thistle was founded in 1901, just one year after Andrew Carnegie founded the Carnegie Technical Schools for the youth of Pittsburgh. From its inception, The Thistle has chronicled the rich history of the university and continue to do so today. We are proud to uphold such a long lasting Carnegie Mellon tradition.
