Faculty Hobby Spotlight

November 29, 2017

Hey guys! I think all of us know from our time as students, past and present, that sometimes it can be easy to forget that outside of school our teachers and professors live ordinary, if not extraordinary lives. I’ve been fascinated at Mudd hearing about some of the hobbies and passions that professors here pursue […]

SCAMFest 2017: My Time with the 9th Street Hooligans

November 20, 2017

Hi guys! Izzy back with another blog. Keeping in a bit of tradition, I’m gonna talk to y’all about my experiences with a capella, which is one of the primary structured things that I do for fun. I’ve written about a capella two other times, once before I was involved, and once right after my […]

HvZ: Surviving the Workload/Apocalypse

October 25, 2017

Hey guys! Today I’m going to be talking about Humans vs Zombies, a 5C game that happens once every semester, spanning the course of a week. The premise of Humans vs Zombies is fairly simple- there are two teams, Humans and Zombies, indicated by bandanas (around the head or neck for zombies, around the upper […]

Decompression Sessions

October 11, 2017

Hey guys! First blog for me so far this year. Coming into my Junior year has been really hectic, and pretty stressful. A lot of Mudders feel similarly, especially around the time of the career fair, when people have to think about interviews and job applications. It’s a lot to take! However, I’ve talked before […]

Game Design at Scripps

October 7, 2017

Hey guys! Although in general we try to blog about the general Mudd experience, you know, classes lots of Mudders take, big open events, things like that, occasionally I like to talk about some more specific to myself, and what I do at Mudd! I’ve talked about this a few times in my blogs, but […]

Shakespeare: Theater at Mudd

April 24, 2017

Hi everybody! Today I’m going to talk to you about one of the classes that I’m taking this semester at Mudd, Shakespeare! Shakespeare is a bit of an anomaly here at Mudd, because half of the class is readings chosen based on some theme, and the latter half is students putting on a play, chosen […]

The All-New Galileo

April 7, 2017

Hey guys! A while back I did a post that was a tour of the Libra complex, the underground part of Mudd’s academic end. However, I had to leave out a major part, Galileo Hall! Galileo is Mudd’s oldest lecture hall, composed of three joinable lecture rooms, Pryne, McAlister, and Edwards. Over the years it’s […]

CAP’ing Off A Great Experience

March 24, 2017

Hey guys! Today’s going to be a pretty short blog about something cool here at Mudd, CAP events! Harvey Mudd is about 45 minutes East of LA, and Claremont is, in fact, in LA County. That means that there’s a lot of cool stuff around! SoCal is a hotspot for concerts, amusement parks, and plenty […]

Ace Space

March 3, 2017

Hey guys, today I’m going to talk about a 7C founded last year largely by Mudders. My friends Caroline and Parnika have become largely involved this year, serving as Chief of Staff and President respectively. Ace Space is a club for a-spec students at the Claremont Colleges. I decided to sit down and talk to […]

On The Way Out

February 21, 2017

Hey guys! Sorry I’m getting this to you a bit later than normal. This week, I sat down with some seniors, to get an idea of what’s it’s like to be on your way out, and to get some unique perspectives from people who have been through the whole process here at Mudd. I interviewed […]
