Wheels on Campus

October 12, 2017

Everyone knows that college students can be lazy. In fact, one of the reasons the “Mudd Bubble” exists is because Mudders have a tendency to only travel as far as they need to in order to get all their basic life necessities. Because almost all Mudders live on campus, eat at Mudd’s dining hall (the […]

Decompression Sessions

October 11, 2017

Hey guys! First blog for me so far this year. Coming into my Junior year has been really hectic, and pretty stressful. A lot of Mudders feel similarly, especially around the time of the career fair, when people have to think about interviews and job applications. It’s a lot to take! However, I’ve talked before […]

STEM with No Single Right Answer

October 7, 2017

Six weeks into the Common Core and freshman year, I have learned how to describe crystal structures, write epsilon-delta proofs, and, in general, to arrive at correct answers. The Core is an overview of the STEM disciplines at Mudd— math, physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, and engineering — and it helps Mudders seek solutions across disciplines. Yet […]

Game Design at Scripps

October 7, 2017

Hey guys! Although in general we try to blog about the general Mudd experience, you know, classes lots of Mudders take, big open events, things like that, occasionally I like to talk about some more specific to myself, and what I do at Mudd! I’ve talked about this a few times in my blogs, but […]

Shark Wee– nope, just Mudd midterm season.

September 29, 2017

Every school year, once the frenzy of moving in calms and the dust from adjusting to new class schedules settles, we finally get a clear view of the tsunami of midterms coming. While exams at many other institutions are all condensed into one week, at Harvey Mudd, we have them spread out into one “season” […]

Some Mudders’ Summers

September 14, 2017

Hi all, Long time no see! Mudd’s back in full swing, and it’s taken a bit of time to get into the rhythm of things after summer, but now it’s time for your regularly programmed admissions blogs. In this first post I want to take a bit of time to reflect on what Mudders did […]

What to do with an extra semester at Harvey Mudd

September 13, 2017

Hello! I’m Jeni and I’m currently a sophomore (class of 2020) studying applied chemistry!  I finished my last final as a frosh knowing I wasn’t really done with Mudd for the year. My excitement was short-lived and died off when I remembered I still had 3 weeks of summer math (my roommate wrote a blog […]
