This fall, Harvey Mudd College welcomes 227 exceptional students to the incoming class of 2021.
The College continues its efforts to build a more diverse community, recognizing that such a community strengthens the education and experience for all students. The diversity of the Class of 2021 is a reflection of this ongoing commitment.
The entering class is 22 percent Asian, 21 percent Latino/Latina, 5 percent African or African-American, 31 percent white and 14 percent multiracial. Students entering from public schools make up 56 percent. Women comprise 52 percent, one of the highest gender ratios of any science- and engineering-focused institution.
The incoming class also represents a diversity of talent, including a wrestling champion, app developers, a United States Naval Observatory intern, a student with two patents pending, a pre-professional ballerina and the founder of a longboard company.
