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.

Last weekend I participated in Sanskriti, the annual South Asian Cultural show organized by the 5C club Claremont Tamasha.

Research Opportunities: Part One

April 8, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

Once the class of 2020 started receiving their acceptance letters, their class Facebook page began to fill with introductions and questions about Mudd.

A tour of my off-campus adventures

March 30, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

Four days a week, I venture off Mudd campus for at least 1.5 hours.

March 26, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

For many high schoolers, Spring Break is a good time to, well, take a break from high school and go explore collegiate options.
