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 […]

The All-New Galileo

April 7, 2017

Hey guys! A while back I did a post that was a tour of the Libra complex, the underground part of Mudd’s academic end. However, I had to leave out a major part, Galileo Hall!

There are many places to focus on physical wellness, which is one of the eight dimensions of wellness, at Mudd.

The LAC gym The LAC gym is located in the Linde Activities Center between […]

Hi all, welcome to the third installment in the Mudd Maker series. These blogs are about interesting projects Mudders have built in their free time. Check out the previous blogs here and here!

CAP’ing Off A Great Experience

March 24, 2017

Hey guys! Today’s going to be a pretty short blog about something cool here at Mudd, CAP events! Harvey Mudd is about 45 minutes East of LA, and Claremont is, in fact, in LA County. That means that there’s a lot of cool stuff around! SoCal is a hotspot for concerts, amusement parks, and plenty […]

March 20, 2017

Welcome to all the RD admits!!! As you begin to explore what Mudd can do for you, here’s a look at one of our more non-traditional majors: the Individual Program of Studies (IPS).
