The New Stems

September 23, 2016, by Izzy Jones

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 […]

“Summer” in Sydney

September 15, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

The school year is upon us, and Mudd is quickly ramping up for the fall semester. The frosh are on pass/fail, (most of) the sophomores are finishing up core, and the upperclassmen have started clinic. However, like Ramita, I want to spend a bit of time reliving this summer. Well, actually, my summer just started […]

Harvey Mudd’s Summer Institute

September 11, 2016, by Izzy Jones

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 […]

Summer 2016: LA + food

September 8, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

Junior year is upon the Class of 2018! Two more years of this grueling, yet exhilarating, adventure that is college. I spent the first 10 weeks of the break on campus doing biomed engineering research. Watch out for my next blog post for more details on Orwin lab’s tissue engineered Brain Patch project. But before […]

A Pokemon Go Tour of Campus

August 18, 2016, by Maureen

I’ve been a Pokemon fan since Generation 1 (just the games, never cards or the anime). I grew up playing Red on my GameBoy Color (wow, what a dated sentence!), and was so excited when I first saw the trailer for Pokemon Go. The app has not disappointed me (with the exception of some of glitches and update […]

Sophomore Soliloquy

June 1, 2016, by Charlee Van Eijk

Hi readers, happy summer! With sophomore year in the books I thought it would be appropriate to reflect on the experience. This year has been a whirlwind of classes, swim meets, rockets, and all-nighters; chock full of unforgettable experiences and invaluable lessons. While I don’t think I can compress the entirety of the year into a single […]

Mudd in the Summer Sun

April 29, 2016, by Izzy Jones

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 […]

The Final Countdown

April 22, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

Experimental Engineering, or E80, has a long history as a laboratory course at Harvey Mudd College. It was known as E80, Hammer Time, until 2008, when it became E80 The Next Generation. The new course still involved a number of experiments that covered various engineering disciplines but also included a final project where students would gain field […]
