Pause

October 31, 2017

According to my Google Calendar, my every minute is scheduled for today. I allotted three hours for Statistics, two hours for my Chemistry professor’s office hours, and an hour at the Writing Center. The pile of notebooks on my table have too many stars scribbled inside them, one for each thing I am confused about […]

HvZ: Surviving the Workload/Apocalypse

October 25, 2017

Hey guys! Today I’m going to be talking about Humans vs Zombies, a 5C game that happens once every semester, spanning the course of a week. The premise of Humans vs Zombies is fairly simple- there are two teams, Humans and Zombies, indicated by bandanas (around the head or neck for zombies, around the upper […]

Humans of Harvey Mudd: Part 1

October 23, 2017

Harvey Mudd Admissions prides itself in admitting diverse classes. Every year we have a melting pot of cultures, backgrounds, and passions added to our student body.

Wheels on Campus

October 12, 2017

A lot of Mudders feel similarly, especially around the time of the career fair, when people have to think about interviews and job applications. It’s a lot to take! However, I’ve talked before […]

STEM with No Single Right Answer

October 7, 2017

Six weeks into the Common Core and freshman year, I have learned how to describe crystal structures, write epsilon-delta proofs, and, in general, to arrive at correct answers. The Core is an overview of the STEM disciplines at Mudd— math, physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, and engineering — and it helps Mudders seek solutions across disciplines. Yet […]

Game Design at Scripps

October 7, 2017

Hey guys! Although in general we try to blog about the general Mudd experience, you know, classes lots of Mudders take, big open events, things like that, occasionally I like to talk about some more specific to myself, and what I do at Mudd! I’ve talked about this a few times in my blogs, but […]

Shark Wee– nope, just Mudd midterm season.

September 29, 2017

Every school year, once the frenzy of moving in calms and the dust from adjusting to new class schedules settles, we finally get a clear view of the tsunami of midterms coming. While exams at many other institutions are all condensed into one week, at Harvey Mudd, we have them spread out into one “season” […]
