November 27, 2015, by Bailey Meyer

Every year, the class Chemical and Thermal Processes, or E82, takes a trip out to Kramer Junction, California, to see a SEGS, or Solar Energy Generating Systems, complex. The site is the world’s second largest solar thermal energy generating facility and only an hour and a half away from Mudd. I am not in E82 currently, […]

Thanksgiving! A wonderful time for many students here at Mudd, especially those of us here who get a chance to go home to be with our families. For those students who don’t, the Hoch-Shanahan dining hall has a thanksgiving meal each which is popular with the students. I attended, and the lines were massive. I […]

Tour de Foothill

 31 miles. Blood. Sweat. Tears. Last Saturday, on November 14th, my friends Lillian, Richard, Anji and I embarked on a 31 mile bike race across the LA Basin. We played with the idea of going on the bike race for two months, occasionally “trained” (our most challenging training was one 8 mile bike ride), and […]

One of my favorite things to do is learn a new language. In highschool, my options were limited to French, Spanish, and Latin, but here at Mudd I have a lot more choices.

Every semester, Harvey Mudd hosts a series of talks by experts in a particular field, as a part of the Nelson Speaker Series, named after respected and well known Mudd alum Bruce J. Nelson ’74.

More MuddHacks

November 5, 2015, by Charlee Van Eijk

In this post I’m going to talk about two of the projects that came out of MuddHacks, Mudd’s very own hardware hackathon. If you’re wondering what a hackathon is, I aim to enlighten you, and if you already know what it is, I aim to amaze you. I consider myself an adept multitasker, so who […]
