What you don’t see on a tour: Mudders playing games

June 5, 2015, by Misa Kabashima

Our most recent blog post is brought to you by senior intern, Lin Yang. Without further ado, here she is: My name is Lin, and I’m a senior intern here at the admissions office. I was born in China, but went to high school in Davis, CA. I’ll be finishing up my last year at […]

Summer at HMC

May 29, 2015, by Misa Kabashima

The blog’s been a little quiet lately since our seniors graduated earlier this month. Luckily, with the arrival of summer, some Mudders are back on campus. Kaitlin is a rising senior working in our office and she’ll be guest blogging throughout the summer. Here’s Kaitlin and her first blog post: Hello everyone! My name’s Kaitlin […]

Tying Up the Loose Ends

May 5, 2015, by Emma

Much like Calvin, I find myself at the end of the year with a huge assortment of photos. (This is inspired by his most recent blog post here.) Make no mistake, Mudd can be difficult and stressful at times. It’s not all fun and games. However, I find that some of my best memories are made […]

The Year In Review, or, All the Little Things

May 1, 2015, by Calvin Leung

Over the course of the school year I’ve amassed a bunch of pictures of interesting happenings at Mudd. I try to write around the photos I take but there are definitely many pictures which are interesting but couldn’t really be turned into entire blog posts. Here’s to the little things, that aren’t the most photogenic, but brighten my day: alpha particles scattering off gold […]

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 […]

Course Registration

April 17, 2015, by Emma

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 […]
