Taking a Break from the Academic Heat in Death Valley

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. College students can tell when these spring breaks begin as the campus tours become more frequent and crowded. Though high schoolers are excited to come explore campuses, college students can’t wait to take […]

Today is the day.

March 18, 2016, by Thyra

Today is the day. At 6:30 pm PDT, we will be releasing our decisions. Technically we have been recruiting the Harvey Mudd College Class of 2020 for years, ever since some of you checked that magical box on your PSAT’s saying that you were willing to receive mail from colleges. And today is the day we […]

Dormitory Informatory

March 11, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey guys! Short post today (not really), but I think it’s an important one. So a few times in my blogs, I’ve talked about dorms. Proctors, mentors, intramural sports, things like that, and how different dorms do all sorts of things differently. We’ve gone spring break this next week, and after that is room draw. […]

After getting out of core…

March 4, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

During my first year and a half at Harvey Mudd, I often questioned the need to take all of the required core classes. I knew that part of the Harvey Mudd mission statement was for students to be “well versed” in multiple scholastic areas, like physics, chemistry, and writing, but I did not see the connection […]

Keeping a Creative Balance

February 28, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hi again guys! Today I’m gonna talk a little bit about art at Mudd, and what some of the students here at the school do to express themselves. One of Mudd’s big selling points is that, even though it focuses on STEM courses, it’s a liberal arts school, with a number of humanities requirements. As […]

E72: Engineering Mathematics

February 27, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

Talk to any engineering major and E72 will definitely be on their favorite class list. Co-taught by the engineering and math department, E72 is a half-semester class all engineering majors are required to take along with E80 Experimental Engineering. It features 3 hours of class followed by long homework assignments that focus on applications of […]

This is the second, long awaited installment in a series of posts about who athletes at Mudd are and what it means to participate in a varsity sport on campus. Find out more about these mathletes, starting with my extremely-eager-to-participate roommate and swimmer Bryce Murley ’18.

The Wonderful World of Wellness Peers

February 19, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

Part of the initiative of Harvey Mudd College Wellness is to increase student interest in well-being. In order to do so, a new group of students called the Wellness Peers were formed on campus this year. The idea behind the creation of the Wellness Peers was that students are more likely to listen and want […]

Proctors, Mentors, Dorms, Oh My!

February 16, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey guys! So today I wanted to talk a little bit about proctors and mentors here at Mudd. They’re students who work in the dorms and can help manage the environment, and are often compared to RA’s at other colleges. For me, in my time here as a frosh, it’s been great having a group […]

Hyperlooping with SpaceX

February 10, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

SpaceX’s Hyperloop competition is the kind of thing I expect to hear about on the news or read an online article or two about, so it’s surreal that I get to talk to my peers about their involvement in building a fifth mode of transportation. Last year, 10 Mudders teamed up with engineering professors Orwin […]
