Meet your senior interviewers!

September 18, 2017

If you’re a current senior planning on applying to Harvey Mudd, you might be interested in signing up for an admission interview. Many of our on-campus interviews will be hosted by one of our senior interviewers. Before you start getting to know them, here’s couple of Mudd-isms to know: HSA: humanities, social sciences, and arts Senior […]

Some Mudders’ Summers

September 14, 2017

Hi all, Long time no see! Mudd’s back in full swing, and it’s taken a bit of time to get into the rhythm of things after summer, but now it’s time for your regularly programmed admissions blogs. In this first post I want to take a bit of time to reflect on what Mudders did […]

What to do with an extra semester at Harvey Mudd

September 13, 2017

Hello! I’m Jeni and I’m currently a sophomore (class of 2020) studying applied chemistry!  I finished my last final as a frosh knowing I wasn’t really done with Mudd for the year. My excitement was short-lived and died off when I remembered I still had 3 weeks of summer math (my roommate wrote a blog […]

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 […]

West Side Story: Meet Shamu

April 24, 2017

Hi all, long time no see, again. I’ve been meaning to be more regular about these but, as it would, life keeps getting in the way! No matter, because today I’m going to share with you a fun little tidbit about dorm culture. HMC prides itself on strong dormitory identities and cultures, and West Dorm […]

A Sneak Peek into Orwin Lab

April 21, 2017

Given the generality of the engineering major, research is a fun and productive way to explore engineering topics not covered by major requirements – E82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 101 and 102. I joined Prof. Orwin’s biomedical engineering research team last January. I stayed on campus last summer to work on the tissue engineered Brain Patch project […]

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 […]

Major Spotlight: Physics

April 8, 2017

At the end of Core, all Mudders are pretty well versed with fundamental physics concepts. We start off our first semester of college with Special Relativity, move on the Classical Mechanics, and then finally end with Electricity and Magnetism. These three semesters teach us that unlike many of our experiences in high school, physics is […]
