Hey everyone! It has been a while since I have posted as I was home for winter break. It was nice and restful, but it is great to be back on campus. To kick off the new year, I, along with some of the other bloggers, am going to do a series of posts about […]

Breaks at Mudd

January 30, 2015, by Emma

Everyone is back from winter break and getting settled in for spring semester. For me, it’s things like having a two minute commute to class, not worrying about how many layers to wear, and having a smoothie bar at breakfast every morning that make me appreciate the return to college life.
