[Y HMC?] with Savanah Diaz

Hello, my name is Savanah! I first heard about Mudd during my senior year of high school and I would say I applied on a whim. Being from south Florida, California schools weren’t on my radar until I checked out the HMC website and fell in love with the idea of a liberal arts college […]

[Y HMC?] with Alyssa Okimoto

Hi! My name is Alyssa Okimoto and I’m a rising senior majoring in chem-bio at Mudd. I heard about HMC in my freshman year of high school when one of Mudd’s Admission officers visited my school. Even as a freshman I knew I wanted to focus on the sciences, but I didn’t want to give […]

Before that happens though, we […]

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!

Roommates: Living With Other People!
