Mudd Hacks: The Maddness Continues

November 22, 2017

This year marks the fourth year of MuddHacks, Mudd’s annual hardware hackathon. MuddHacks differs the majority of other Hackathons in that it is focused on hardware rather than software so teams are judged on the final physical product they create. Students solder in the dark of night. Every year teams of 3-5 students work together […]

SCAMFest 2017: My Time with the 9th Street Hooligans

November 20, 2017

Hi guys! Izzy back with another blog. Keeping in a bit of tradition, I’m gonna talk to y’all about my experiences with a capella, which is one of the primary structured things that I do for fun. I’ve written about a capella two other times, once before I was involved, and once right after my […]

Speakers at Mudd: Neurobiologist Dr. Cori Bargmann

November 11, 2017

“I know what I want to do in life,” I texted a friend. “Neuroscience and I are going to be friends.” Dr. Cori Bargmann, a neurobiologist, had just finished her lecture at the Shanahan Center Auditorium. In her seminar, titled “Genes, brains, and flexible behaviors: studying neural circuits across space and time,” Dr. Bargmann chronicled […]

Sushi with Prof Boerkel

November 11, 2017

One of my favorite things of Harvey Mudd’s community is how easily it is to get to know people on campus. In particular, I love how accessible all of our professors are and how excited they are to get know know students beyond the classroom setting. Last week, the HMC chapter of Women in the […]

HMC Cribs

November 6, 2017

Hi all! As usual, long time no see. Seems Mudd has a tendency to make blogging an irregularity for me. Anyway, in this blog I bring you a side of Mudd you probably don’t usually see. I recently saw somebody’s room with a really awesome aesthetic, and it inspired me to share it with the […]

Nooks and Crannies at Mudd: Engineering Edition

November 5, 2017

The iconic photo of the Shan is plastered across every brochure ever but I’d like to highlight the facilities that are present in every department where the learning happens! Beyond what’s featured in print materials, Harvey Mudd has amazing lecture halls, lab spaces, quiet homework spots, and more. This post is focused mostly on engineering! […]

Pause

October 31, 2017

According to my Google Calendar, my every minute is scheduled for today. I allotted three hours for Statistics, two hours for my Chemistry professor’s office hours, and an hour at the Writing Center. The pile of notebooks on my table have too many stars scribbled inside them, one for each thing I am confused about […]

HvZ: Surviving the Workload/Apocalypse

October 25, 2017

Hey guys! Today I’m going to be talking about Humans vs Zombies, a 5C game that happens once every semester, spanning the course of a week. The premise of Humans vs Zombies is fairly simple- there are two teams, Humans and Zombies, indicated by bandanas (around the head or neck for zombies, around the upper […]

Humans of Harvey Mudd: Part 1

October 23, 2017

Harvey Mudd Admissions prides itself in admitting diverse classes. Every year we have a melting pot of cultures, backgrounds, and passions added to our student body. In the class of 2021 alone, we have an International Physics Olympiad gold medalist and the founder of a longboard company. This week, I wanted to highlight the achievements […]

Wheels on Campus

October 12, 2017

Everyone knows that college students can be lazy. In fact, one of the reasons the “Mudd Bubble” exists is because Mudders have a tendency to only travel as far as they need to in order to get all their basic life necessities. Because almost all Mudders live on campus, eat at Mudd’s dining hall (the […]
