First of all, congratulations to everyone admitted into the class of 2019!

Pranks on You!

April 8, 2015, by Travis

Howdy y’all, Harvey Mudd College is infamous for its pranking prowess on a grand scale.

5C Focus: The Motley

March 13, 2015, by Emma

With all the classes, work, and events on campus, sometimes it’s easy to get off Mudd and explore the other colleges. Scripps, land of beautiful architecture and plentiful flowers, is located right across the street from our dear, warty Mudd.
