Ask the Senior Interns: Round Two

Hey y’all! We’re continuing our Q&A with the Senior Interns today, this time focusing more on what people get up to when they’re not in classes or working on homework/projects! Click here to read the first half of this blog, that goes more in depth about academics and jobs! Name: Sol Cruz Dorm: CASE IS […]

Ask the Senior Interns: Round One

Happy August! It’s Hannah again, on behalf of all the Senior Interns working in the (virtual) Admissions Office this summer. The start of August means that there’s only three weeks before the next school year starts, at which point most* of us will leave Mudd and start our futures elsewhere. Before that happens though, we […]

Loving Locusts and Modeling Math (aka my math thesis)

Hey y’all! It’s Hannah, back with another blog! Last time, I talked about how much I loved being a theatre major, but I also want to highlight some parts of the STEM side of my major, starting with my experience doing a thesis! As a math/comp bio (aka mathematical and computational biology aka MCB) major, […]

My Trek Through Theater Tech (and down to Pomona)

Hi y’all! My name is Hannah and I’m going to be writing some blog posts this summer, although I just graduated from Mudd two months ago! I previously wrote some blogs two years ago, when I worked on campus and gave admissions tours over the summer, and now I’m back (metaphorically, since I’m technically still […]

Before your freshman year at Mudd, you fill out a long questionnaire about everything from when you go to bed to what you like to read. Those answers are used to place you in a dorm and with roommates. It worked out incredibly well for me. This year, I was in a Drinkward triple with […]

Reflections on My Freshman Year

I made the decision to come to Mudd almost exactly a year ago, at the end of April. It’s kind of crazy to think that its been that long. I’m not quite done with freshman year (I’ve still got finals left), but I thought I’d share a little bit of my reflections on the year! […]

Core at Mudd: Electives

As I build my schedule for next semester, I’ve been thinking about some of the choices of classes I made for the past two semesters. During the first three semesters at Mudd, we take the Core Curriculum. Especially in the first two semesters, almost all of our classes are part of Core. However, you do […]

Books Everywhere: The Libraries I Frequent

One of my absolute favorite things to do is read. The libraries I have access to are thus very important to me! At Mudd, I visit two different ones. Honnold/Mudd Library The Honnold/Mudd Library is the Claremont Colleges Library, and I mostly use it for academic purposes. It’s the third largest private library in the […]
