Today is the day. At 6:15 pm PDT, we will be releasing our decisions.

And today is the day we […]

The Annual 5C PowerDown

March 10, 2017

Every year, the 5C’s compete in an energy conservation challenge called PowerDown. Before the competition begins, a 2-week baseline of energy consumed on each campus is taken. Using this data, the goal of the competition is to reduce electricity consumption by the largest percentage. A monetary prize is given to the college that reduced consumption […]

The Quest for Off Campus Study Spaces

March 5, 2017

When midterm season lasts two weeks (or more),  I often find myself really frustrated with many of my usual study spots. My room feels too small, the Shan seems too far, and Platt is too dark — I can keep going; really any excuse to procrastinate. For the first time since freshman year, I decided […]

Ace Space

My friends Caroline and Parnika have become largely involved this year, serving as Chief of Staff and President respectively. Ace Space is a club for a-spec students at the Claremont Colleges. I decided to sit down and talk to […]

Skiing SoCal

February 26, 2017

The engineering life is busy. Between classes, clinic, and extracurricular activities, it can be hard to find some time to just take a break. But even though I have been really busy this semester while living the engineering lifestyle (going to sleep late, spending all of my time in Parsons), I have been really enjoying […]

On The Way Out

February 21, 2017

Hey guys! Sorry I’m getting this to you a bit later than normal. This week, I sat down with some seniors, to get an idea of what’s it’s like to be on your way out, and to get some unique perspectives from people who have been through the whole process here at Mudd. I interviewed […]

Popping the Mudd Bubble

February 14, 2017

Mudders joke that we too often get stuck in the “Mudd bubble,” so engrossed in school work that we don’t ever leave campus. Even though we’re so close to the other four Claremont Colleges, you’ll find students complaining about 15 minute walks (in beautiful, 70 degree, SoCal weather) to classes at Pomona. Since sophomore year, […]
