Muddy Mudd Midterms

March 2, 2018

Hey everybody. Spring break is in just over a week for us here at Mudd, and that means one big thing: midterms (or finals if you’re in a half semester course). And I’ve gotta say, the weather has done a lot to match the mood the last few weeks! Chipper Californians have become bitter, bundled […]

Foodie Adventures!

February 28, 2018

With a meal plan at Mudd, you can swipe and eat across the 5Cs at 7 dining halls! During my freshman year, I almost exclusively ate off campus at Pitzer and Claremont McKenna. There’s also the option of giving one of your swipes to participate in a dorm BBQ, which doesn’t have to be the […]

Always Together

February 24, 2018

Two weeks ago, I fell behind in my classes. I had a major out-of-school deadline, so I made full use of my safety-net of extensions and excused absences. It was right before midterms, so I had to make up for the lost work *and* be evaluated within a week. When I did get caught up, […]

14 Reasons I Love Mudd

February 23, 2018

Before February ends, I wanted to write a post with the spirit of Valentine’s day. Here are 14 reasons I love Mudd (for a blog post that was intended to go up on Feb 14, but alas Mudd life got in the way) 1) The community. For Valentine’s Day, our school hangs up paper hearts […]

PowerDown with ESW Moss!

February 22, 2018

Hey guys! This week I sat down with Kayla Yamada, a member of ESW/MOSS (Mudd’s environmental club), who is helping put on PowerDown, a sustainability event here at the 5C’s, to learn more about what PowerDown is and how ESW/MOSS does sustainability work on campus. So first, what is PowerDown? PowerDown is a 5C competition […]

Semester in Review: Falling into Spring

February 14, 2018

Last semester was the beginning of the end of core. Beyond looking forward to having full control of my schedule, I wanted to highlight some memorable moments 1.5 semesters into college! Surviving Summer Math: This was definitely one memorable way to start off my “third semester”. Typically, sophomores take Math 60 & 65 (multivariable calculus and […]

‘Shopping’ Electives

February 7, 2018

New semester, new schedule, a host of decisions. When it comes to registration, I feel a lot of pressure to find the ‘perfect’ class. I hope my classes will help me see the world differently, stretch my writing and speaking skills, clarify What I Want To Do With My Life, begin to understand how non-scientists […]

The Couch Controversy

February 5, 2018

Red tinted close up of a new couch.

Hey guys! This week I’m talking about a topic that’s really hot here on campus right now. Couches. As Mudd’s largest common space, the Platt living room is a space well known to any Mudder. During the lunch hours and at night, Platt is packed with students studying, working together, relaxing between classes, or taking […]

Disneyland with Wellness!

February 2, 2018

Although Claremont is less than an hour away from LA, I think Mudders tend to forget how many cool places there are in the world outside the 5Cs. For example, we’re only a 40 minute drive from the happiest place on earth but I actually haven’t been there at all for the 1.5 years I’ve been here […]
