CAP Events

November 12, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

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 […]
