The Leonard Fund

April 27, 2015, by Calvin Leung

I will never complain about free food. I also love hanging out with my professors and just chatting idly about life, science, and random things. Clearly, Mr. and Mrs. Mark G. Leonard P ’93 were onto something when they established the Leonard fund, a pool of money basically dedicated to students who want to eat food with their professors. This week, we’re having […]

Summer is almost upon us

April 24, 2015, by Bailey Meyer

It has been warming up here in Claremont which, besides being a regular occurrence, in this case means summer is coming. Over ASP weekend, I was asked a lot of questions about what freshmen typically do the summer after their first year at Mudd. Though it is possible to get an internship or a research […]

While Mudd is known as a science and math college, not everyone knows that it also has a diverse range of humanities courses available. With nineteen faculty members, it’s not a small department either, and the classes cover a wide range of topics including history, literature, economics, and art. This semester, I am taking Lit […]

FAQ #4: What are you doing after graduation?

April 21, 2015, by Ji Su

Hi all, I haven’t posted here for a while, because I’ve switched my roles at the Office of Admission. I’ve been working for the past school year as a senior intern. This involves interviewing prospective students, coordinating events for the Admitted Students Program, and helping out with anything around the office! It’s been a lot […]

There’s less than a month left until graduation, which means it’s time to register for courses! While high school seniors are deciding where to go to college (good luck with your decisions, by the way!), Mudders are trying to pick courses for next semester. Course registration is a multi-step process. Every student is given a […]

  The Humanities, Social Sciences, and Arts (HSA) is a third of every Harvey Mudd student’s curriculum. An incredibly important part of our education here, our HSA classes teach us to address problems from multiple dimensions, and get a really well-rounded education.

ASP Memories

April 10, 2015, by Bailey Meyer

Last year, as a pre-frosh myself, I made the decision to attend the Admitted Students Program. I was on the fence about where I should attend college, so I figured the program would help me get a better idea of what Mudd would be like as a student. Obviously, I am now at Mudd, so […]

Pro tips for ASP

April 10, 2015, by Calvin Leung

**The following tips are from a former prospective student who attended ASP, and do not represent the official opinions of the admission office** 3. Bring long pants. For the last two years, the weather at ASP has been overcast. Mother nature likes trolling prospective students–most of the time, the weather is balmy with a cloudless […]

Why Mudd?

April 9, 2015, by Emma

First of all, congratulations to everyone admitted into the class of 2019! We realize that you all have some difficult decisions ahead, and we hope to see many of you at our Admitted Student Program this coming weekend. In the spirit of decision season, I thought I’d ask a few current students (and myself) about […]
