Resistors, Capacitors, Inductors, Oh My! (aka Summer in Beijing)

September 26, 2016, by Charlee Van Eijk

你好, School is back in full swing, so I figure I should tell you all about my summer before I forget it entirely. After a brief stint at the admissions office I spent the majority of summer in Beijing, China, taking three courses at Peking University. I studied electrical engineering, Chinese history, and introductory mandarin. […]

The New Stems

September 23, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey guys! Time for another blog. Today I thought I’d talk about one of the classes I’m taking this semester, E79, the new version of the class E59, more colloquially know as Stems!

Summer 2016: Research

September 19, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

As junior Mudd engineers, we are in the midst of the E80 series. Ranging from E82 Chemical and Thermal Processes to E86 Materials Engineering, we receive a broad, yet in-depth, technical education that upholds the definition of our general engineering degree.

“Summer” in Sydney

September 15, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

The school year is upon us, and Mudd is quickly ramping up for the fall semester. The frosh are on pass/fail, (most of) the sophomores are finishing up core, and the upperclassmen have started clinic. However, like Ramita, I want to spend a bit of time reliving this summer. Well, actually, my summer just started […]

Harvey Mudd’s Summer Institute

September 11, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey guys! I hope everybody had a good summer! I’m pretty sure I did. Probably. Now I’m back at Mudd, and that means back to blogging. Here at the beginning of Sophomore year, I couldn’t help but think a little about how I got here, and about first coming to Mudd. You may or may […]

Summer 2016: LA + food

September 8, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

I spent the first 10 weeks of the break on campus doing biomed engineering research. Watch out for my next blog post for more details on Orwin lab’s tissue engineered Brain Patch project. But before […]

Tip of the Month: Interviews

September 1, 2016, by Raissa

Interviews can seem daunting but they don’t have to be. At the end of the day, it’s just another conversation with a slight twist. You may already know that the best conversations are often the product of a person’s willingness to share and to ask questions. Do interview, if you want to share and ask […]

A Pokemon Go Tour of Campus

August 18, 2016, by Maureen

I’ve been a Pokemon fan since Generation 1 (just the games, never cards or the anime). I grew up playing Red on my GameBoy Color (wow, what a dated sentence!), and was so excited when I first saw the trailer for Pokemon Go. The app has not disappointed me (with the exception of some of glitches and update […]
