Rating HMC (Harvey Mudd Critters)

June 5, 2018

Hi everyone! I’m Briana, a rising senior engineering major. I’m from Eastvale CA, only about half an hour’s drive from Mudd. Abundant wildlife might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Harvey Mudd. After all, we’re located in Claremont, a small suburban city. If you take a walk though, […]

Tip of the Month: Planning those summer visits to colleges…

June 1, 2018

I am often asked to identify the best time to visit a college. There are two answers to this question. The first answer is to see the campus when everything is in its usual flow because this allows the guest to visit classes, to see people interacting, to stop someone in the dining hall, dorm, […]

Backpacking in Kings Canyon with the Adventure Club

May 21, 2018

Hi everyone! My name is Doug, and this is my first time posting on the blog! I’m a rising junior at Mudd who’s passionate about engineering and material science. Before coming to Mudd, I grew up in various towns in Connecticut which is quite the distance from here. Through my blog posts, I want to […]

The Writing Center at Mudd

April 25, 2018

Hey guys! This week I wanted to talk about one of the on-campus academic resources, the Writing Center. The Writing Center provides students with peer-on-peer support for papers, writeups, and any sort of written documents. Last Friday they had their Happy Hour event, which I attended, so I sat down with Blake to talk about […]

Flying theatre brunches

April 11, 2018

April is probably the most hectic month of spring semester. Classes are coming to an end which means final projects and the second round of midterms are in full swing. Homework for every class seems be much more challenging and thus take much longer than it did a couple weeks ago. Registration period is nearing […]

Proctors and Mentors at Mudd

April 6, 2018

Hey guys! Today I’m going to talk about some of the ResLife (Residential Life) staff at Mudd. The vast majority of Mudders live on campus so the environment that Proctors (our equivalent to RA’s) and Mentors (RA underlings? I don’t have a comparison) create is important to the feel of the school overall. There will […]

Dear past self, part 1

April 4, 2018

April is a funny time to work in a college admissions office: I’m hearing from high school seniors who are looking towards the future and trying to decide where to go. I’m also hearing from college students who are looking back on their college experience and say, “I wish I knew…” or “I didn’t know […]

What’s there to do around Mudd? Spring Break Edition!

March 30, 2018

This year, for spring break, I decided to stay in the area for part of the week and explore the LA area a little more; Mudd is so close to a city that attracts so many tourists from around the world, so I imagined there would be enough to keep me busy for a couple […]

Faculty Hobby Spotlight 2

March 26, 2018

Hey guys! Last semester, I did a post about faculty hobbies and interests outside of what they do at school. The ones last time were great, but they weren’t even all of the responses that I had! In this post, I’m gonna talk about some more faculty, and the things that they do to enrich […]

Today is the day.

March 16, 2018

Today is the day. At 6:00pm PDT, we will be releasing our decisions. Technically we have been recruiting the Harvey Mudd College Class of 2022 for years, ever since some of you checked that magical box on your PSAT’s saying that you were willing to receive mail from colleges. And today is the day we have […]
