Carnegie-Mellon Helped Shape Quinto
<font color=yellow>Zachary Quinto</font> found that even though he could go home again, home had changed.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="">The Tartan Online</A>, Quinto never expected to return home as a celebrity. "I grew up in Pittsburgh," said Quinto. "It's always a pleasure to come back. I don't think I would have ever imagined that [I would be coming back as a celebrity,] no. But it's a great honor, and it's really exciting...Yeah, it's great to be back and I feel like it's a really exciting time and the university has changed so much and grown so much in the ten years that I've been gone."<p>Quinto's roles of Sylar and Spock have garnered him notice at Carnegie-Mellon, as he found out when walking on campus after Homecoming. "Someone was asking me when we were coming back from [Homecoming] and all these people were following us and taking pictures of us and she was like 'Is that normal for you?' and I was like 'No, thatís Carnegie-Mellon! These are my people, in more than one way.'"<p>His time at Carnegie-Mellon helped to shape Quinto and prepare him for the roles that he would play after graduation. "I feel like what CMU has given me was a foundation to be able to sort of digest anything that gets thrown at me," said Quinto, "and it just happens that these two jobs are firmly rooted in science-fiction...As an actor I feel really capable of many other things that I hope to explore and intend to explore as well. I feel like being here prepared me for anything that I end up doing. I wouldn't be where I was if it wasn't for Carnegie Mellon, thatís for sure."<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="">here</A>.<center></center>

Too true. Science fiction nuts are fairly rampant on campus.

I overheard the following exchange in a computer lab back in 2005:

Guy: Wow, the lab's rather empty this evening.
Girl: It's opening weekend for Serenity, remember?
Guy: Oh, right.
