Across the Claremont Colleges, it’s possible to take Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. While all of […]

Harvey Mudd sits in a rather geographically rich area. The beach is about an hour to the west, Joshua Tree National Park is two hours to the east, and the San Gabriel Mountains can be seen from campus.

ASHMC is Harvey Mudd’s student government, consisting of an executive board, senate, and honor board. Each class elects their own presidents, every dorm elects its own presidents, and the student body collectively votes for executive and honor board members.

Sophomore year begins!

Fall semester is upon us, and for me, sophomore year begins!

While Mudd is known as a science and math college, not everyone knows that it also has a diverse range of humanities courses available.
