About Us

History

Fringe was founded in 1969 by a group of architecture students at  Carnegie Mellon University. At the time, it was the first independent student organization to compete in the history of Spring Carnival at  CMU. Since then, Fringe has evolved into an all-inclusive group of close  friends who participate competitively in a variety of campus traditions  and co-curricular activities. We are heavily involved in buggy, booth  and intramural sports, along with a host of other on-campus events. We  are active all year-round and have membership from across all of the  colleges at CMU.
