PowerDown!  

February 27, 2015, by Ramita Kondepudi

No lights in our room after sundown for 3 weeks: my roommate, Marissa, and I decided that we would take on the challenge proposed by the 5C Power Down competition. Every year, the 5Cs compete for the Green Cup, the prize for a month of the most water and energy conservation/reduction in consumption.     […]

Professors at Harvey Mudd

February 13, 2015, by Ramita Kondepudi

One of the reasons I chose Harvey Mudd was the unique student-professor interactions. The low student teacher ratio, small class size, and great faculty makes the learning experience smoother and more enjoyable. The professors are always there for us – office hours, problem set questions, late night emails. They genuinely want students to succeed no […]

The Office of Institutional Diversity

December 13, 2014, by Ramita Kondepudi

Harvey Mudd has several offices that correspond with different aspects of student life. The Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) is one of these. A warm space with lots of candy and Deans Sumi and Angelica always ready to talk to you about anything, the OID is very popular among students who just want to hang […]

Augmented Reality Snake: A Hackathon Project

November 25, 2014, by Ramita Kondepudi

A few weeks ago, students from all of the 5 Claremont Colleges came together to participate in a 12 hour hackathon. The first place winners of the Hackathon are two Mudd freshmen – Hamzah Khan and Daniel Johnson! I interviewed them to hear more about their experience with computer science and the Hackathon. Hamzah Khan […]

Introducing Robespierre the Rhino and Timer the Squirrel

November 7, 2014, by Maury Quijada

Meet Robespierre the Rhino and Timer the Squirrel! Robespierre and Timer are two endearing, unofficial mascots that the Office of Admission has adopted in early Spring of 2014 to promote school spirit and display a piece of Harvey Mudd to prospective students. You might be wondering, though: why a rhino and why a squirrel? It turns […]

Being a Proctor through the Eyes of Katie Shepherd

October 7, 2014, by Maury Quijada

One of the unique characteristics about Harvey Mudd College is the way that the College supervises residence life. Throughout the years, Mudd has developed the concept of a Proctor, who is essentially a senior Mudder who lives in a dorm and is primarily responsible for the safety and well-being of the residents in that dorm. Most dorms at Mudd have […]

Teal Dot!

October 2, 2014, by Ramita Kondepudi

The Harvey Mudd community is fairly closely knit; everyone looks after each other. With only 200 students per class, we’re all getting to know each other well. Keeping students equipped with dealing with uncomfortable and dangerous situations is a priority for not only Mudd, but all of the Claremont Colleges. Last September, even before the […]

The First Few Weeks at Mudd

September 16, 2014, by Ramita Kondepudi

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be here, writing for you, on behalf of Harvey Mudd’s Admissions team! My last three weeks have consisted of a pre-orientation hike, four days of orientation, and now eleven days of real school. I’ve loved pretty much every minute of the last three weeks but before I go further, […]

FAQ #3: What are you doing for the summer?

July 25, 2014, by Ji Su

One of the most frequently asked questions during the tours is ‘What do Mudders do during the summer?’ To answer that question, this week I’m sharing a variety of internships and research projects that students are involved in – both on campus and off campus. This week’s blog features three students, all doing internships/research off campus. There […]

The Claremont Wilderness

July 4, 2014, by Risa Egerter

Hey everyone, I’m Risa! I am one of the summer Senior Interns in Admissions. I’ve been having a very relaxed summer so far working part time in Admissions and part time in my research lab (Bioengineering with Professor Orwin). For research I am working with antibody arrays to characterize the cytokine response of several types […]
