Muddy Murals

April 15, 2017

Dorms can sometimes feel very repetitive. The room and layouts are often mirrored, and in a lot of dorms, they are practically the same. However, there is some room for making creative changes that last for more than a year or two of residency in Mudd dorms. One example of this is painting murals. I do not […]

Healthy Habits: Gyms

April 2, 2017

There are many places to focus on physical wellness, which is one of the eight dimensions of wellness, at Mudd. Aside from hiking, skiing, or surfing in the LA area, the five Claremont Colleges have multiple gyms that Mudd students can access.

The Annual 5C PowerDown

March 10, 2017

Every year, the 5C’s compete in an energy conservation challenge called PowerDown. Before the competition begins, a 2-week baseline of energy consumed on each campus is taken. Using this data, the goal of the competition is to reduce electricity consumption by the largest percentage. A monetary prize is given to the college that reduced consumption […]

My Life as an Engineering Junior

February 26, 2017

The engineering life is busy. Between classes, clinic, and extracurricular activities, it can be hard to find some time to just take a break. But even though I have been really busy this semester while living the engineering lifestyle (going to sleep late, spending all of my time in Parsons), I have been really enjoying […]

Spring Semester Activities

February 11, 2017

Sometimes it can be hard to find the time to schedule fun events at Mudd between classes, meetings, Clinic, and more. However, there are many optional activities to participate in every semester, both on- and off-campus. In the few short weeks that we have been back from winter break, I and other Mudders have gone […]

Well, most of January has flown by, which means winter break is over and the spring semester has begun. Normally, I spend the majority of my winter break at home relaxing after the fall semester. However, during the fall, I took a class called Dickens, Hardy, and the Victorian Age, which has a travel component […]

Winding Down for the Semester

December 9, 2016

Another semester is about to end, and Mudders are preparing for finals before winter break. As always, this semester has been a whirlwind, and the end is no different. Here’s a peek at the end of this semester so far. Last weekend, the Sontag Reslife team and I organized a hiking trip for members of […]

A Walking Tour of the 5Cs

November 27, 2016

Harvey Mudd is part of a consortium of schools in California known as the Claremont Colleges. The colleges share resources with the each other, like the books available at the Honnold Mudd Library or the Student Health Center, and are physically close together. They are so close that students from any one of the 5Cs […]

CAP Events

November 12, 2016

It can be hard to get off campus as a first year Mudd student. You aren’t allowed to have a car on campus until your sophomore year, and since many of your friends are frosh, they don’t have adequate transportation either. Mudd students can easily get to a train station or a rental car, but […]

Saturday Nights

October 27, 2016

There is always work to be done at Mudd, but sometimes you just need to take a break and relax. Saturday nights are good for social events, including parties, Late Night in the LAC, and spending time with friends. Parties at Mudd happen regularly, and many of the large ones have distinct themes. Case holds […]
