Beneath Mudd: The Libra Complex

December 2, 2016

Hey guys! The very first blog I ever read from admissions was a tour of some of the lectures halls and some of the newer, nicer spaces here at Mudd. So I decided I’d do something similar, but for an older, and to the casual viewer, more hidden part of the college; The Libra Complex! […]

Ways To Grow

November 7, 2016

Hey guys. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what I want to do with my life, and ho I want to make that happen. I worry, probably a bit too often, all things considered, about falling behind my peers, because I see a lot of people around me with a certain… Drive to get […]

Taking A Break

October 21, 2016

Mudd is a lot of hard work. It’s true, and it’s one of the reasons a lot of people come here. You get the opportunity to push yourself as far as you’ll go, and see what in the sciences you’re passionate about or enjoy. Occasionally, however, it can be a bit much. None of us […]

October 7, 2016

Hey everybody! As you may or may not know, the Hoch-Shanahan (or simply the Hoch), Mudd’s dining hall is generally recognized at being pretty spectacular in comparison to a lot of other college dining halls, with fresh food and lots of options. This week, we even had a visiting Norwegian chef come serve (the lamb […]

September 23, 2016

Hey guys! Time for another blog. Today I thought I’d talk about one of the classes I’m taking this semester, E79, the new version of the class E59, more colloquially know as Stems! This year, Stems has changed, adding a lab portion in to the usual class, and also trying to do reverse classrooms instead […]

Harvey Mudd’s Summer Institute

September 11, 2016

Hey guys! I hope everybody had a good summer! I’m pretty sure I did. Probably. Now I’m back at Mudd, and that means back to blogging. Here at the beginning of Sophomore year, I couldn’t help but think a little about how I got here, and about first coming to Mudd. You may or may […]

Mudd in the Summer Sun

April 29, 2016

Hey guys! Today was the last day in-class for me, so I wanted to talk a bit about what my summer’s gonna be like, and what summer looks like for some other frosh here at Mudd. Many¬†upperclassmen spend summers doing research and internships, but compared to them, a¬†larger group of frosh spend their summers at […]

BLAM to Boston

April 1, 2016

Hey guys! Izzy here with another blog post. Hopefully a short one, though mine always turn out long. :\ This last weekend, our Black Lives group here at Mudd, BLAM, got to go on a trip to Boston for the national conference of the Nation Society of Black Engineers! (NSBE) It was a really great […]
