Welcome, Class of 2023!

Message From the Vice President

Thyra Briggs

Thyra Briggs

Congratulations on your admission to Harvey Mudd College’s Class of 2023! We are excited that you will be joining our community. We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you through your applications and cannot wait to get the chance to know you better.

For now, celebrate your admission and enjoy your well-deserved break. Looking forward, we’d love for you to join our Admitted Student Program (ASP) on April 7th-8th. You’ll get a chance to meet your future classmates and current Mudders, as well as our impressive (and impressively friendly) faculty. In the meantime, introduce yourself to your fellow admitted students via our online chats or HMC Class of 2023 Facebook page. If you’d like to see us in person, but are unable to attend ASP, call us and we’ll arrange an alternate time for you to visit.

HMC is an extraordinary place where students and faculty live in an atmosphere of trust. We believe you will be a tremendous asset to this community and we invite you to join us. Again, congratulations on your admission!

Best wishes,

Thyra Briggs
Vice President for Admission and Financial Aid
