Major Spotlight: CS Math

October 8, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

At Mudd, finally declaring your major is a big deal. We have until the end of sophomore year – that’s two years – to decide what we want to do, with up to four semesters of the Core Curriculum backing up our final choice. While getting exposure to different fields is a major perk of […]

Copper Chef

Hey everybody! As you may or may not know, the Hoch-Shanahan (or simply the Hoch), Mudd’s dining hall is generally recognized at being pretty spectacular in comparison to a lot of other college dining halls, with fresh food and lots of options.
