My Experience at CUWiP (Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics)

February 11, 2019

I’m gonna start this off by saying wow, Santa Barbara is beautiful. Luckily, this was where CUWiP was this past year (for our region). CUWiP stands for Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics, and it is a conference run by the American Physical Society. It is a national event with multiple locations throughout the country.

The Weekly Routine of a Mudd Frosh!

February 8, 2019

Hello! It’s Mason again, here to talk about my weekly routine at HMC. I know it’s a capital-T Thing to talk about your daily routine, but I don’t get up every day and do the same thing, so I feel like my life is much better described by a weekly routine than a daily one. So, […]

Adventures Close to Home Part 2: Potato Mountain

February 7, 2019

One of the best weekend hikes, in my opinion, is Potato Mountain. I have done this hike a couple of times, and it always offers great views without taking a long time. The last time I went on this hike was right before Thanksgiving break. It was such a great opportunity to go on a […]

I have officially begun my first “non-core” semester at Harvey Mudd. With the end of what feels like a significant chapter of my time here, I have been reflecting on what I learned from core… and I mean like what I reaaaally learned.

Hi guys! Today I’m making a post just to say goodbye! I’ve been writing blogs for the admissions office since my freshman year, and I’ve written dozens of blogs over the last 4 years. But next semester I’m going to be doing a new job, and therefore won’t be bringing you all blogs anymore! It’s […]

N+1: Optimism in Spite of Physical Reality

January 25, 2019

Hey everybody! Today I’m going to talk about a Mudd dining hall tradition, N+1. Let me describe what I believe is a fairly relatable dilema: You’re walking into the Hoch Shanahan Dining Hall, the premier location for food-eating on Mudd’s campus, and you see some friends sitting together. You go over to them… Only to […]

Being the BBQ Frosh!

January 4, 2019

Hello! It’s Mason again with another post! About two weeks after the start of school, at my dorm’s very first dorm meeting, I volunteered to be Atwood dorm’s BBQ Frosh – but what does it mean to be the BBQ Frosh?  Well, in summary, it means that I’m the freshman responsible for organizing Atwood’s weekly […]
